It is a truism for me that any writing I do before 9 am is usually the best work I do all day. The thing I can't figure out is why I forget this fact over and over again and let other things clutter up that golden time. So I did an intervention with myself last week and have since gone back to what works. While this has meant abandoning some things I like, such as early morning workouts, I know it's all for the best -- cuz me in jammies at 7 am with tea and the laptop? Apparently it's a winning combination. Especially on gray and rainy mornings like this one.
