My Writing Routine
I’ve established a predictable M-F morning routine. I wake up naturally, take my thyroid replacement, and lie around playing Candy Crush until I’m out of lives. Then I get up and make coffee, and head outside if it’s over freezing, or to the den fireplace area if it’s below. I am currently taking a writing e-course, so I open my weekday exercise email, read it while I sip my coffee-food, and then… I write! I use a pink gel pen and a leather notebook with those fancy gold-edged pages. I pretend it’s real gold, because I consider my words to be that valuable.
This is my sacred time. I am my words. I live my story.
