Are you a night owl or are you the early bird? What’s your most productive time of day? When do you do your best work?
Like Sir Terry Pratchett’s Sam Vimes, I have trouble with the concept that there are two 7’oclocks in a day. I know one of them, it’s around dinner time. In other words, I’m not a morning person. I never have been. I’m not bad at getting up early, especially if I’m on holidays. I can catch an early morning plane easily enough. But, without motivation, I really dont do mornings.
I know, as a photographer, I should be up early to catch the Golden Hour. Still, there’s always a lovely late afternoon or twlight to look at. I can tale some nice photos without having to feel really sorry for myself.
My favourite times were always ‘the cocktail hour’…. or more often ‘beer o’clock’ . I also enjoy that time when the sun is over the yardarm. I can be a real nightowl, but as I get older, bedtime gets more enticing.
Productive? Not sure, I tend to work on inspiration, but I can never tell when that’s going to happen. Every time I see sunshine though, it’s the right time. Twilight suits me well, there’s always a hint of magic then.
