What Makes You a Better Writer?

My Morning Run

There is nothing better than my morning run to get me in the writing mood.  It can turn out good, where I feel I can keep running forever, or bad, where I can't wait to get back home but it's a habit I believe makes me a better writer.

I don't think about anything in particular most mornings but it's a chance to take in the morning light and the quiet before a busy day ensues.  Or sometimes, my run turns out to be a good way to mull over new writing or stories even when I'm struggling to finish or one of my old injuries is threatening to derail getting through a short run.
