I have been interested in the whole Right Brain vs Left Brain issue, ever since grad school at VCU.
I am a night person and I do my best visual creative stuff late at night. However… I have recently discovered that I do my best (read – easiest) writing early in the morning?!?
I have been getting up just before dawn, getting dressed, getting online to check the temperature and heading out the door right after 6AM. I like to choose the scene I plan to write and talk to myself about it during the walk.
I get home, fix my coffee and start writing. The scene I thought about on my walk usually comes pretty easily. Many days, I can then move on to the next scene and the next scene after that. At about 8AM or 8:30 AM, I eat breakfast, then depending on my energy level, I keep writing or take a nap. LOL
I have to leave to take care of my Mom at 11:30AM. On a good day, I have been able to write for 3 hours or so. After I get back from Mom’s, if I’m lucky, I am still in write mode. If not, I can plan my next project or work on something else related.
Interestingly, I have yet to be able to write effectively after dinner. I consider myself comfortable with my creative side(s), but I find it fascinating that my visual side and my verbal side have such different creative schedules.
