I agree. Great suggestion.

Great advice.... if only I had the time to sit down first thing in the morning to write 1000 words!

Often people give advice about doing something first thing in the morning before other things happen, writing, praying, reading the Bible or even exercising, but that never seems like a good idea to me. Mentally you've got to wakeup, physically you've got to get the blood flowing and not be stiff or numb, and spiritually you have to be awake. I don't even like to talk first thing, I like a slow hello world approach, but making something a scheduled part of your routine does make sense.

I don't know if I could do that. I have to get the things that I need to do in the morning out of the way first so they aren't on my mind while I'm trying to write.

That is very good advice.

Good advice for sure, but following it . . ? There's the rub. The problem is, what works for one may not work of everyone. I simply don't work that way. I can write something fist thing in the morning, and usually do. But 1,000 words five days a week. Nope. Like Chrys, I work better getting things out of the way that interfere with my writing. Then I'm home free, so to speak.
