I’m often asked about my writing routine. What techniques have I found mostuseful for making the most of my writing time, getting in the groove as fastas possible, and making sure I’m writing to my full potential every day?Although my writing routine evolves in minor ways depending on what’s goingon in my life and what story I’m working on, I’ve discovered that organizingmy daily writing routine into a series of specific steps, designed first tocenter my thoughts on my story, then to ground me in the requirements of the specific scene I’m working on, then to pump me into readiness for theactual writing, helps me get the most out of every minute I spend writing.Below is a pictorial tour of my writing session. Take a look. You might findsome ideas worth implementing in your own writing routine!
