Optimal Writing Time- Results Revealed

In October 2012 I explored the possibility of finding my optimal writing time. But first, I wanted to find out when most writers write so I took a poll. Twenty-eight of you responded. Nine months later, I am finally posting the results.

With all the infographics I've been seeing lately, I decided to make my own. After all, as a picture book writer, I like reading with pictures. I am using Piktochart to share my poll results with you. I found the tool through Creative Bloq. They list 8 free tools for creating infographs so you can choose one that suits your needs. It took me the entire morning to create this. As you can see, I haven't quite mastered it yet. Part of the graph is not showing.

Here are the results:

Since many of you wrote in the early morning, I decided to give it a try. I agree. It is a great time to write. In the morning, my mind is fresh and alert. It is quiet and the days' stresses have not affected me yet so I was able to write without distractions or interruptions. I tried writing in the evening, but by that time my mind is fried and I just want to go to bed.

Experiment and find your optimal writing time.


  1. Both times are great. I think it just depends on what your schedule allows. Happy writing!

  2. I'm super impressed by your pictograph thingy! I will have to give that a try. Thanks for sharing the results.

  3. Great post, Romelle! The poll was really interesting...and your graphics are fun! I enjoy writing ALL of the time...early morning is great, though, if I can keep myself from checking emails and other blogs.:)
    By the way, I am going to be tagging you in the author blog hop...there are three questions about how you approach writing...and then you can tag three other writers/illustrators. I hope that is post will go up late tonight or tomorrow morning and I'll send you the link.:)
