Ceci n’est pas un blog. 🙂 Luck! I know you’ve written before about the conflict between early morning writing and early morning running: I myself do not have that problem, since I do not, you know, exercise. I don’t really write, either (except email), but the times when I have been most productive have definitely been those in which I’ve sat down at the desk first thing in the morning . . .

What I never understand, though, when one has a day job, is when to fit in the *research,* the *reading* that is necessary for good academic writing. Ideally I suppose that one devotes one’s evening to that part of it, but usually by that part of the day I’m more up for booze and Project Runway than I am for serious and thoughtful articles and books.
