Things a Writer Might Say During an Early Morning Writing Session

Have you ever dragged your weary writer self out of bed at an ungodly hour to write?

Whilst the birds are still sleeping you are sat at your writer desk yawning your head off.

It will be at this point that you start to question all those who rave about the delights of early morning writing.

Here are some things a writer might say during their early creative session:

  1. “Do I need to be this committed to my passion?”
  2. “Did J.K. Rowling do this?  If she didn’t then I am going back to bed!”
  3. “Hey this is cool because my international writer friends are still awake!”
  4. “Even my characters are still asleep inside my head!”
  5. “How long before this coffee kicks in?”
  6. “Are literary agents awake at this time? If they are awake will they be on Twitter?”
  7. “I am writing some weird stuff at this strange hour!”
  8. “Am I still asleep and is this part of a bad dream?”
  9. “Is this what normal writers do?”
  10. “I think I am going to warm up the fingers with some fast pinning action on Pinterest”
  11. “I am feeling a little agitated about being up and I think I might take it out on my characters!”
  12. “I hope someone gets up and makes me breakfast!”

Well done to all those writers who did get up early to write this morning!

Have a great day!

  1. I’m generally more productive early, so I’m more likely to be all “Yay! Let’s do this!” first thing, then I end up flagging in the afternoon, going “Whyyyyyyy did I get up early??!!”

  2. Great post, spot on! This is me, most mornings, trying to squeeze in a paragraph or two before the kids get up. 😀

  3. I think early in the morning would work best for me. I try to get up early in the morning to read my Bible and pray. I think if I get up really early, say 5:00am, I could get my writing done, as well as have my quiet time. I definitely would have to stock up on coffee.

  4. My body can get up early if it wants, as long as it doesn’t expect the rest of me to follow.
    (I’m going to investigate this Hibernation thing)

  5. This would be counterproductive for me. I have found that when I wake up early and actually get out of bed, I’m either still mentally asleep or I crash around noon. My best bet is to try and go back to sleep and then I feel more rested and my mind works much better. Are you going to continue the early morning experiment?

      1. Hence the reason I’m in the doldrums? It could be part of it, but seven hours of sleep a night lately is actually really good for me. 🙂 Just need to step back and get some perspective…and sleep. Like a nap. I enjoy a good nap. 😀

      2. Stay strong my wonderful friend! I feel sad tonight to hear you are in the doldrums. It’s put a gloom on my evening. Things will work out – promise 🙂

      3. NO gloom! no DOOM! As little Orphan Annie said, “The sun’ll come out tomorrow! Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow they’ll be sun!” 😉 You’ve already done a ton to wipe the gray away. 🙂

  6. I start around 5.30 am wordpress, edit, twitter, writers carnival, edit, eat, emails, scrabble and read. Dress , clean, shop and speak to humans slots in between. I am a morning person. 😇

      1. Ok you need to whip up a blog post titled – ‘what you need to do get the Saint husband – tips on feeding & activities!’ – it will go viral

  7. I find myself telling the story in my head while “sleeping” in bed and visualizing my fingers tapping every appropriate key!!!! This seriously can get quite frustrating at times. I solve that by picking up my iPad and reading. My two joys in life. It’s not so bad. Definitely not a morning person but a night owl here.

  8. Well done all of you who do get up early. I personally do my best writing late at night… Which is why I’m writing this comment at 1.04am lol… Though saying that I’m up early tomorrow /today for work lol
