I used to write on saturdays.

I really do not have set days and times to write.

Sometimes it just comes to me and I have to put down whatever I am doing at that moment and just write. I get a lot of ideas as I am falling asleep so I keep paper and a pen by the bed - I also put down all those things you think about before bed that keep you from falling asleep!

Lately I haven't had the time to do much of anything except deal with the family, house and pets. My husband is working the night shift so I have to get the kids out of the house in the morning. I've been taking them to the playground almost daily and I take a tablet and pen with me. The older girls play, the baby sits in her stroller or plays in the grass (or eats the grass), and I get a few minutes to force myself to write - or at the very least come up with an article idea or two.

I'm working on a book right now, a collection of cooperative learning experiences for kids - I am WAYYY behind so I have to find time to force myself to do that.

I used to take every Wednesday from 4pm-10pm to write, my hubby would take the older girls out for a date. I can't wait until he is back on the day shift and graduates and he can start doing that again!

When the children were little, I wrote from 4-6 AM, and any time I could snatch later. Then I took a break from serious professional writing while I homeschooled, and now I write whenever I want, but mostly mornings.

I'm writing--writing posts is writing. I doubt, somehow, that my publisher would agree though <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

After trying different times, I find that the hour between 11 and Midnight is the time when I come up with my best writing. I barely ever get to stay up that late, though, because I get concerned over getting eight hours of sleep a day, and I have school. I don't have to work yet, though <img src="/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />

Hi,

I just recently joined the BellaOnline community. I'm just settling in and learning my way around here. I write whenever I can, but I try to write for a half hour each night, and 3 or 4 hours on a Saturday or a Sunday.

Sometimes I can write during my lunchtime at work, but that's usually just for snippets of ideas, or maybe putting on the finishing touches to something I have just finished.

Take care,
Susan

I envy all of you that sacrificed sleep to write!

While I've been known to stay up later than I intended, I just can't drag myself out of bed early for anything---even writing!

I'm a whole different person asleep-- my family knows "don't wake Mommy!"

When I was writing it would come to me and I would write then.
