When quitting bad habits, I think it’s important to install new ones in their place. This morning I got up earlier than normal, a whole hour earlier. The intention was to start my yoga practice and get in some writing, but I spent too much time cooking breakfast for the kids and checking emails. Tomorrow morning, I will try getting up another 1/2 hour earlier than this morning so I will still have the time to make coffee, pour waffles and check email before getting down to the real business of writing. This morning, I did get some editing done on the short story that came back with a rejection, at least, so it wasn’t a complete wash. And besides, I didn’t have to rush out of the house to get to work on time. Tomorrow, I’ll be setting the alarm for 4:30 a.m.
