Writing Habits: Panel -- Everything You Want to Know About Selling Commercial Fiction

Discuss your writing habits. Where do you write? Do you write every day at a specific time?

Well, today I start my NEW schedule with Mondays off. I'm up, but I don't have to go to the dayjob, so that's always a good start. I'm meeting with my mentor to hammer on the contemporary paranormal series synopsis which is frozen in my brain.

Usually I do the blog in the am, come home in the evening and write, as much as I can or until I make my wordcount. I write at my desktop, but it's hooked up to the net, so sometimes I have to write on the laptop, which is not, to be dedicated. I do think you should write everyday, and at the same time every day. Stephen King is right in that -- letting the guy in the cellar (or Barbara Samuels Girls in the Attic), or your subconcious, know that it's time to write.

I intend to take myself off to coffeehouses, libraries or etc, to also write.

Now, I'm going to have some OJ, toast, and rev up Heart Quest.

Love to all, Robin

Well I hope you get a good agent and can dedicate your time just to writing and so produce more Celta books to our delight!
All the best for your extra writing day.

I DO have a good agent and she's been goosing me to take the leap, and produce more...I just haven't been able to do it.
