What the heck is the 5 a.m. 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 a.m. to write?
Well, yes, and there are a few reasons why. But first, let’s understand what the purpose of the club is.
What is the 5 a.m. Writer’s Club?
The club is for writers who want to make time to write. They wake up at 5 a.m. on weekdays, sometimes weekends, and they write. They use the hashtag to connect with and to support other writers who are participating.
How can the club benefit you?
- Productivity – Even if we don’t consider ourselves a “morning person”, it is understood that 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.
- 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 a.m. 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 still don’t think this club is for you, no worries. I have other tips on how to fit writing into your busy schedule here.
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. Good luck, Writers!
