I start at 4 or am, wake up, start a pot of coffee, and write from 4-6, - or 5-7 am, because those are the hours when I am most productive. Don’t write beyond your physical limits Recently, I finished a book chapter by inserting 3,500 words that I wrote in the first 1.5 hours of the day into a draft that had 3,400 words.
So I finished an 8,000 word paper in about 2 or 3 days.
