There seems to be some sort of block at 6:00 AM. Moving from a 7:00 AM wakeup to a 6:00 AM one went very smoothly. The alarm would go off, I'd get up and start the day. Getting past 6:00 AM has been a bit of a challenge. The alarm is set for 5:45 AM, I turn off the alarm, and hang around in bed for 10 minutes. Not exactly working. I think I'll try one more day at 5:45 AM, and move to 5:30 AM anyway.
I started getting up early in order to get more writing time. I am managing to stay off the internet, and I did write 200 crappy words this morning, but I'm not seeing the progress I want. Most mornings I've been working on a contract technical document, which is not why I'm doing this. Switching from the technical writing to the fiction writing is a tough switch; I find myself using more of a passive voice.
I'll keep plodding along. If this getting up early thing doesn't work, when I go back to regular hours it'll be like I'm getting 2 hours of extra sleep.
