Not too late to start earlier

One of the things I’m coming to realize is that I simply cannot write at night. I used to be capable of pulling all-nighters for work or school; my brain would continue working until I told it to shut down. 

Those days are long gone. Now, when I find myself at the keyboard after dinner, a kind of fog creeps into my head and all my thoughts are a bit fuzzy. I can think, and I can get the words out, but they are so, so slow. I know I could get more done in the mornings or earlier in the day. 

And this is something that every single writing book in the universe seems to tell us: write first thing in the morning, write when you wake up, write before you do anything else, etc. etc. etc. I never really “got” this. 

Until now.

Tomorrow I start a new routine.
