Today Is A Good Day To Write

I’m an early riser. If the sun is up, I have to be up. I’ve always been that way.

However, I really don’t take advantage of that. I get up and the first thing I do is wade through mail and blogs and twitter and forums and webcomics and news and the like. Then comes shower and breakfast. By the time that is all done up to a couple of hours may have passed and no writing has been done. And by the time I do start it may be three or more hours since getting up.

I tried something a little different this morning. I started with mail and the like as per usual, but more browsed through it quickly rather than reading fully. Then I did some writing, even before breakfast. Only around 400 words, but it was something, and better than the output of some whole days.

I think, after that success, I should change my morning habits. Having a good start like that in the morning can set the course of the whole day. The idea is that each morning, before anything else, even mails and the like, to set a goal, even if only a couple of hundred words, then do everything else. That way I have had a start made and am in the right frame of mind.

Hrm, you know, if you turned the title into a decent looking logo and stuck it on mugs and shirts and caps and the like, it may even sell…
