In terms of getting my word count done, day in, day out, there is one and only one thing that consistently provides the best results.
I’m a night owl. Serious night owl. My most productive time is 10 pm – 2 am.
My best productivity tool is to get 1/3 of the new day’s word quota done for the day before I go to bed.
No, I don’t know why it works, only that it does.
