It occurs to me that maybe I could get up early, like today, if I had something to get up for. If I get up at 6 am, then I have about 45 minutes to write and create. I'd go to work a lot happier. I know this because the years I did "Morning Pages" (The Artist's Way) were my happiest and most creative. So I'll try setting the alarm for 6 instead of 6:45 and see what happens.
This morning I worked on art and did 15 minutes of writing. I'm so jazzed. Better than figuring out how to write my favorite songs to CD! This time management thing could actually work.
