“Best ideas” down the drain

I hear a lot of people say that their best time for writing is in the morning.  They set the alarm to wake them an hour earlier so that they can get their writing in and feel as if they’ve accomplished something for the rest of the day.  Or maybe they seek the solitude from disruptive home life that loved ones can sometimes cause.

I, on the other hand, try to write earlier in the day, but it seems that my best ideas always hit me at bedtime.  Just as it did last night.  I didn’t bother to get up, as I usually don’t. This morning when I tried to recall one of those “best ideas” I realized that it had disappeared, probably down the drain along with my dirty bath water.

Does anyone else have a similar experience? What is your writing schedule?

Happy writing,
