Mary Oliver, winner of the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize, reportedly advised:
If anybody has a job and starts at 9, there's no reason why they can't get up at 4:30 or five and write for a couple of hours, and give their employers their second-best effort of the day—which is what I did.
However, if you're like me, a night owl, I would recommend, after a twenty minute power nap, staying up a couple of hours after one's bedtime to write.
Like Mary Oliver alluded to, it's difficult to find time to write if you work and sleep for a a combined 16 hours per day.
