Dark mornings and creativity

Yesterday was a classic example of where my brain is at, I thoughtfully wrote a post as a poem and tagged it for twitter as #tuesdaythoughts… that was at around 9am.  It wasn’t until 4pm that I realised it was Wednesday not Tuesday!

I have mentioned before that autumn is my favourite season, but it’s not all pretty colours and crunching leaves, it’s also dark mornings and dark evenings.  I don’t mind dark evenings at all, I like snuggling on the sofa wrapped in a blanket mindlessly doing mindless stuff.  Dark mornings however do not have the same appeal, no matter if the sun is still below the horizon we have to rouse ourselves out of slumber and make the considerable effort to get up, even though it’s still night time in appearance.  That said we may then have the opportunity to witness a stunning sunrise… I am so a glass half full person!

So here we are on this rather dull Thursday morning, older son has left for college, hubby for work and younger son is still in bed (either asleep or watching tv).  I am making the most of the peace and writing, I find my focus drifts when surrounded by noise or activity.  I’m certain even the most well-known writers have their preferred environment to allow their creativity to flow, for me it’s relative silence… peaceful and calming.
