Hi Irene. Well done for getting up at 5am. I’m jealous of people who are wired that way because mornings are such a struggle for me. Could you do, say 30 minutes of your creative writing first before getting into your paid work? Or you could pick a word count, say 300 or 500 words a day. It doesn’t take long to do that and over a few days and weeks you would get quite a lot done.

Best wishes
