One cold, early morning in late January 2018, I woke at 5:30 to let my new puppy relieve himself.

I am not a morning person whatsoever.
Late last year, I began waking up at 5:30 AM to write for an hour then drive to work at an engineering firm. It was the hardest fucking thing I had done in a long time. But I did it.
