First: UGH MONDAY!
I can write at any time of the day, but I do my best writing in the morning. I've never been a morning person. When I wake up, I'm like an open wound. I don't want to be spoken to or touched or even glanced at. I'm fragile. Something as simple as spilling coffee can begin a chain of events that leads to my having a bad day. If I can get through the first couple of hours, then I'm good.
So why is it that my most fragile time, is also my most creatively fertile? I still don't know. I sit down in my chair, turn on some music, and write. I always have a trusty cup of coffee. My concentration during that time is astounding. I bang out anywhere from 1000 to 2000 words an hour. But then, around the 2 hours mark, my attention begins to wander. I wonder about bills and my dog and what I'm going to have for lunch. My word count drops. I can't sit in my seat for more than a ten minute stretch. It's odd.
I'm curious: When is your best writing time? How do you keep your attention focused when it starts to wander?
