I'm curious. I've honestly heard on many different websites many different responses. Some do better while at work, relaxing, right before bed and some even while intoxicated. I thought it's be fun to know when gaiains feel they write best (plus I'm new and am exploring many different forums... I think I'll like this one best due to my interests... even though a friend of mine warned me it ws slow. Is it slow or is that just the forum where people post their stuff?)
for me, as strange to me as it seems, i only seem to get anything done when at school, i don't know why, maybe it is because i am around people who are doing the same thing, like i said i don't know, but between that and the kind of music i listen to, i would say I'm pretty well off.
For me, I do my best when it's late at night (we're talking 11-3 here). I guess it's because when I'm that tired, but too stubborn to go to sleep, the critical part of my brain is too tired to function and I write in a frenzy, not really caring what I say. It ends with me getting the word vomit out and actually producing something decent.
And unfortunately, it is a slow moving forum. emotion_8c
I write best at night. I do most things best at night.
For me, I'm always more productive during times when I'm really busy. Such as during summer vacation I just can't focus, but during the school year I focus way better.
I certainly can't write in the morning, heck, I can't function in the morning full stop. If I know I have other work to do I can't write. I have to be in a calm environment, quiet, listening to music and, more importantly, inspired.
I write best in the dead of night, with my music blasting but everything other than that silent. Also, on ocasion, after I read a good book or watched a cool show that gave me some ideas.
(Yes, it is slow. xp )
Late evening is usually best for me, because it's quieter around the house and there are usually less distractions. I also like to settle down somewhere and write in between classes at school, when I'm not trying to catch up on sleep.
Between 11pm-7am, usually this is at/passing 24 hours of being awake. I'm not sure why, but it's not just my creative side dominating to screw with my logical side--I've done some great and fruitful studying around this time period too.
It also helps when I have a situation/song stuck in my head. I find it to be the quickest way to drive through a story.
Wow, there seems to be a lot of late night writers. I too find it best when it's late at night... I wonder why that is? Thanks for all the replies guys, it was very interesting find out when people write best. Now I wonder, perhaps a second question. Where do you write best? It sounds strange but for some reason I write best in the living room at my dads house even though I haven't lived there for 6 months.
