Fearing our own creative work

The other day I sat down to make a writing schedule for myself. I’d read for the four hundredth time how important it is for aspiring writers to set aside time every day to write and build up that creative discipline.

I weighed different time options in my head. Morning? If I wanted to do it before work, I’d have to get up at least by 6:00 am, maybe 5:30 if I wanted a good chunk of time. And then once my office moves in a few months and I have a longer commute, probably more like 5:00. That seems awfully early, and I can just see myself turning off the alarm and going back to sleep more often than not.
