The science behind the best time to write and think creatively may surprise you

Are you a morning person? Maybe you should save all of your problem solving for late at night.

Do you come up with all of your best ideas when everyone else is asleep? Maybe you should jot them down and wait to write about them the next morning.

Does this all sound counter intuitive? Then you need to check out this infographic from Neil Patel, one of the top content marketers in the business, on how to determine your best time to write and think creatively.

Wall Street Journal calls Neil a top online influencer. Forbes ranks him among the top 10 Internet marketers. President Obama recognized him as a top 100 entrepreneur under the age of 30. And the United Nations says he is one of the top 100 entrepreneurs under the age of 35.

None of that comes as a surprise if you follow his blog,, home to some of the most instructive and visually appealing information about blogging, digital marketing and content strategy.

Here at Stuff Writers Like, we follow his work and content marketing advice religiously—because 1) we know Neil tests everything before he recommends it, and 2) because, time and again, it works for us, too. So when we saw his recent post about the science behind the best time to write and think creatively, we knew we had to share it.
