Writing when you're tired

It is nearing the end of the day and I'm tired. As a result, the words don't flow as well. It takes me longer to think of things to write about. So here is my observation. Try not to write when you're tired. Now sometimes you can't avoid it. You have to write and you're tired so you just work through it. But the best time to write is when your brain is fresh and you're not tired. One thing you can do is try to take a nap if you're tired. Even if it's just a short 15 to 30 minute nap, it would help you out and probably help you make it through whatever writing you need to finish up. Obviously the best thing you can do is try to get plenty of sleep and do your writing when you're at your peak when it comes to energy. In the end though, just get the words on the page any way you can no matter how tired you are.

What do you think?
