  • Writer's pictureAvery Navarro


Writing at sunrise is a brilliant way to start any day. Ernest Hemingway, Kurt Vonnegut and Maya Angelou were sunrise writers, and Haruki Murakami is a sunrise writer today. I don’t write like any of them, but I do write with the sunrise. It works like this: step one a good night’s sleep, step two awake at 5am, step three plunger coffee, step four read and re-work what I wrote yesterday, step five write what comes next. I’m usually good for three or four hours fuelled by coffee, and the occasional wayward piece of pastry, then the energy subsides. After that, a shower, and Uber driving while the interior monologue rattles along re-working what I’ve just written and generating more ideas. Night writing? Forget it. I’m in bed by 9pm.
