Welcome once again Wednesday Warriors!
I'm deep in the trenches of my new story and decided, this time, to fill out questionnaires for my characters. This way, I know how they will react to the plot I throw them into. One of the questions is "What is the first thing they do in the morning?" This, of course, had me wondering about all of you.
What is the first thing you do when you wake up? After questioning what year it is and turning off my alarm, I usually head straight for the bathroom to brush my teeth (because ew) and then debate whether or not to sleep five more minutes. Because I get up at four most mornings in order to work out, this usually devolves quickly into an existential about the value of exercise and whether or not I would really be better off getting more rest.
Usually, discipline wins out, I lace up my shoes, and head out. Sometimes though, my sheets call me back into their embrace and I swear to do better the next day.
So what about you? What is the first thing you do when you wake up?
If you have a second, I'd love to know!
