Morning, Noon, or Night?

Trying to get better about posting semi-regularly... I think everyone gave up on me! Come back! LOL.

I'm posting a poll on the side over there ----->>>>>
When do you write? Are you a morning writer? Middle of the night? All day? (I wish) Evening? Random? Are you structured with it, or not? I'm curious.

If you haven't already seen it, there is a fantastic post about Building Your Platform on Really really really (really?) informative and interesting, with great tips like for instance, about using social networking sites to promote yourself:

"Using other social networking sites, such as mySpace, Facebook, and Twitter. The trick is to provide information that’s really going to intrigue other people and get them invested in your book. Don’t tell them that you wrote 1500 words today — tell them that you did some fascinating research for your story on bondage furniture for that S&M dungeon in your story. Don’t just tell them you’re interviewing people for your nonfiction book — give them outtakes from the interview, or at least tease them with what kinds of nuggets of wisdom are going to be in your finished manuscript."

I really liked that one, because you hear about promoting yourself all the time, but I liked how it took it further, telling us to detail it out. What are your thoughts on this, and don't forget to vote on my poll!

During the week days, I write in the evenings after work. On the weekends, however, I can write all day if I don't have anything scheduled. Those are the BEST.

Glad to see you back!

I liked what QueryTracker had to say about platform too. I'm a morning writer and whenever else I can sneak it in.

I'm a random writer with no schedule.
