There's a reason why the early bird captures the worm

(Akari and President Aria (the cat) waking up on NeoVenicia in one of my favourite anime, Aria)

I'm sure if I rooted around on Google I would find the origin of that saying the early bird catches the worm. Or perhaps it's a proverb. Either way, it is true.

This morning I decided to do an experiment. Instead of watching DVDs until it was time to get up (Pop Pixie!), I got up and edited my wip. I hate anything that wiggles, but I really did catch the worm this time. I expected to be sleepy and slow. I was a little sleepy, but I wasn't slow. I was possibly the opposite, because I was attacking my wip before work used up my daily energy (It so did - today was rather busy).

I'm now 62% through my wip - whoohoo! Slowly but surely I'm making progress. I might get up tomorrow and edit before work too. It's nice to come home and slob around without the guilt of not writing/editing

I do recommend starting a task early in the morning, if you wake up early. Somehow being up and awake before anyone else is magical. By the time you go to work/school, you feel really productive, starting your usual day's activities with the knowledge you've already achieved something.

So, who else is up for the early morning challenge?

Yep, another morning person here.

Yay! I wonder how many else there are like us?
