What the heck is the 5 AM Writer’s Club?
You may have stumbled upon the hashtag on Instagram or Twitter and wondered this, especially at the beginning of your writing journey.
Though the name is pretty self-explanatory, I wondered the same thing myself. Were people really waking up at 5 AM to write?
That’s a yes! And there are a few reasons why. But first, let’s understand what the purpose of the hashtag is.
What is the 5 AM Writer’s Club?
The “club” is for writers who want to make time to write. While it’s called a club, it’s actually just a hashtag writers use. (However, you could totally start a real club if you want to!)
They wake up at 5 AM on weekdays, sometimes weekends, and they write. They use the hashtag to connect online with and to support other writers who are participating.
How can the #5amwritersclub benefit you?
- Productivity – Even if we don’t consider ourselves a morning person, the human brain is most productive at the beginning of the day. Night owls might disagree, but a full-time job and a family can leave us drained, and our creative juices dry by the end of the day.
- Peacefulness – Imagine beginning your day with a fresh cup of coffee and silence. Well, except maybe the sound of birds singing outside your window. But who’s complaining?
- Community – Go ahead and tweet that it’s your first time participating in the 5 AM Writer’s Club. Make sure to use the hashtag. I guarantee you’ll be overwhelmed with love and support from your fellow writers. They love that sh*t. If you start waking up at 5 AM and use the hashtag every day, you’re definitely going to make a friend or two! I don’t know about you, but that definitely would make waking up easier for me.

If you are interested, it won’t hurt to give it a try. Just remember to stretch, and to make yourself a cup of coffee or tea. Don’t forget to drink your water, too. Good luck, Writers!
