I used to always want to write my daily posts late in the day. My thinking was that it would often be a reflection on the day’s events, an unpacking. Sort of like the end of an episode of Doogie Howser, M.D.
But more and more I realize that this passive approach, journaling the day’s events, is counter-productive. My creativity is at its best earlier on, when my writing can be more than just a reflection. It can be a proactive creation of ideas, a spark to set other things in motion.
There’s always tomorrow for reflection. When I can, I’d rather create.
