Night Owls!

The sun is going down behind the clouds this evening and much needed drizzle for our brown grass.  Our grass looks like it moved out West this year.  I can hear the stories churning, and I wonder how many will have droughts or weather related content inside.

My post today is in the evening because it’s time for some night writing again.  Something changes when the sun goes down and  so do my writing prompts.  Write in the dark tonight or go for a midnight stroll if it’s not raining.  Try to get in touch with what’s around you and reflect on the differences.  Some of us thrive early in the morning and some at night. 

Change things up once in a while to challenge yourself. For those of us who are romance writers, explore your writing during the daytime hours and night. Get up early with your characters before the sun rises, and in the middle of the night. How do you feel? Your characters might feel the same. Remember, you need to create the atmosphere for your readers and that occurs at different times of the day.

Most importantly, write down how things go for future reference.  Finding the right rhythm for yourself will only help you in the long run.

If you still feel lost, then return to your midnight diner.  Write there.  Practice writing more scenes in different locations.

My posts are Monday through Friday. You can find a copy of my new Writer’s Journal at

I’m an author in Minnesota who started out writing and illustrating Children’s books. I’ve published poetry and adult Romance Novels. I created my website and social media to reach out to other writers because the process can be lonely. I wanted to reach out to readers, writers, and those with a dream of finishing “that” novel. I share the advice of other writers and the tools I use to create my stories.
