The earlier I write, the better my writing tends to be. This is a strange contradiction for me since I’m naturally such a night owl. But maybe that’s why – maybe it’s specifically the friction between my natural states that creates the right environment for good idea-sifting.
Another reason, however: at the beginning of the day, anything could happen. So I’m writing about potential. At the end of the day, everything has happened, so I’m looking for lessons and insights only from the discrete events that have occurred. Naturally, that’s a smaller pool of potential catalysts than all events that could occur.
Or maybe this post isn’t very good; after all, I’m writing it pretty late.
