Although it really didn’t have any effect on the title, I noticed as I wrote “Night” that the majority of the work I put in on it happened then as well– at night. For some reason, as time has gone on, I’ve been finding it easier and easier to get writing done after the sun has gone down, often at all hours of the morning. I guess part of it is because there are less distractions, fewer things I could be doing other than writing (besides sleeping, of course…), but since a lot of my time-wasting activities are a result of my computer anyway, that can only be a part of it.
There’s just something about sitting at my desk in the middle of the night that helps the ideas flow more coherently than normal. I can write at any time, but that’s when it comes most easily. Do you have anything that you seem to do best at a certain time of day?
