As I explained in an earlier post, I do my best writing in the early morning. When I’m finished, I put it aside and do something else until the following morning.
I walk two miles each day, weather permitting. Since beginning my novel, I’ve found that this daily forty minute constitutional gives me ideas that send me scurrying to a notepad when I return home. I’ve invented dialogue, discovered character traits, and found plot twists that would never have occurred to me if I’d just been sitting around.
My mornings are the best time to write. My afternoon walks are my best time to think.
