Beginning Your Writing Day

According to Scripture, a day begins in the evening: “So the evening and the morning were the first day” (Genesis 1:5). Most of us, however, have grown up to believe that a new day starts in the morning. 

Changing our thinking to agree with God’s Word, however, would have a revolutionary effect on our writing. For example:

  • We would plan and prepare for our writing day in the evening so that when we awakened the following morning, we would know right where to start.
  • We would fall asleep meditating on Scripture which would then work in our spirits during the night. We could choose Scripture verses directly related to our writing. Writing problems that pose challenges would be solved in our sleep as we meditate on God’s Word.
  • We would start our writing the next morning well-rested and with a definite purpose in mind.

Another possibility would be to write in the evening, which is actually the beginning of the day. As you plan your writing schedule, ask Holy Spirit to lead you. He will help you plan your day according to His will for your life. When you do, you will accomplish everything He wants you to accomplish.

  1. Loved your inspiring pictures and words! Your comment about meditating on Scripture reminded me of Ps. 63:8 “When I remember You on my bed, I meditate on You in the night watches.” Happy meditating and writing, everyone!

  2. I seem to write best in the 9-12 PM timeframe. According to this, I’m actually writing in the evening. And I thought I was a morning person. LOL!

  3. What a great idea! And you know, I often think over my book as I’m falling asleep. Making plans for the next morning is something I’m going to try.

    It’s good to be back, Mary Ann. I was SO busy with summer theatre, I didn’t have time to read my blogs. Trying to catch up now before the Philly conference next week. 🙂
