Problem is, my kids wake up in the morning, so it's generally expected that I do the same. Also, morning time is my writing time. The older two kids leave for school at 8am, and the younger two wake up at 9am. On a good day, I crank out 3-5k words during that stretch (on a bad day, I average 327 + a deep and abiding disgust with myself - yes, I have issues. It's kind of my thing.).
I've tried writing at night, but I generally stare blearily at the screen, write a few lines that may or may not make sense in the morning, and then develop a phantom back pain that DEMANDS I lie down pretty much immediately, preferably with a good book or an episode of Doctor Who.
So, apart from chemical stimulants or self-flagellation, how does one develop a good sleep schedule that allows for bright and happy mornings? ----> This is not me waxing philosophical before I reveal the answer I've discovered. This is me seriously asking because I have not got a single clue.
