In my regular day–to-day life, I have my list of things to do.
I have my three things that must get done personally and professionally. I have the longer list of the bigger goals and I have the annoying errands and clean up tasks that need to get done.
It’s like… an outline, if you will. An outline of the day to show me where to go because as together as I think I am – I’m really not without a map.
But, the irony is that when it comes to writing, I am the opposite. I typically don’t use an outline when it comes to writing my own books and stories. It really just happens. I form a relationship with the characters and learn more about them as I go and the story unfolds…
Dissect if you must! It works.
What’s your writing ritual?
