The most productive time of day for me is morning. The fact that I’m also a night owl makes for a sleepy and often slow start to the full day that’s stuffed between the rising and setting of Patty.
I get up, make myself presentable, drink my shake, read the Bible and a few sections of assorted devotionals, and wonder what happened to the morning? Sometimes I take notes as I read and they flow into other thoughts. I spend much of the time sitting right here, in front of this lovely screen — time that isn’t taken up by moms, grandkids, laundry, cleaning, errands, appointments, hubby, reading great books or watching favorite programs.
Does it happen to you, that when you buy a new car, all you seem to see are other cars like yours? Every time I was expecting a baby, the world seemed populated by pregnant women. I’m a new author, so guess who I notice the most?
This morning I came across a Blogger who asked a question I often ask myself. How do other writers schedule their creative time? I know that when I’m on a roll, I can write quite a bit every morning. It’s time to dust that habit off and exercise it again. The book that’s knocking around in my brain will have a better chance of getting out if I open the gate.
Maybe it’s because I’m a new author that I’m so curious about other writers. I visited her page on FaceBook, Choghig Kazandjian, and learned that she’s a Writer, a Blogger and an Educator. She has written four books to date. Imagine, four books! Take a look!

I’m off to learn and grow. At my age, I need all the help I can get!
