The Beginning of Your “Writing Shift”

I like to think of my writing as a job. I have to write for a certain number of hours each night with a goal of five pages minimum. The trouble is, I start my “shift” at 10 pm. Now, I’m usually a midnight writer, or so I like to call myself. It’s just that lately, with my days so full of activity, things like the gym, the pool and household chores, I’m usually exhausted by the time I make it to my word document. I find myself blocked and my mind wanders uncontrollably.

Tonight, I am planning a quick meditation and back to work. After this post of course. I just thought I’d share this quick thought and ask for any advice you might have.

What do you do to keep your mind fresh and focused?
