All right, remember this is all cumulative. So we've set a bedtime and we're adhering to it just like we did when we were in school and had some serious learning to do the next day. We've banned pajamas after nine a.m. And we've got signs all over our house that read "Nulla dies sine linea (damnit!)"
Now we're ready for some real work. Tonight we set our alarms early enough to create a space for writing (7a.m. for me, probably earlier for those who have to get kids to school or themselves to their "second job.") Then, in the morning, we leap out of bed as soon as the alarm jangles, roar our battle cry (you know it) and--this is the important part--be at our "desks" and writing within 30 minutes.
