Cooking the Story Before Serving
7/1/2003 7:28:53 PM
Getting into your writer's brain.

When I sit down to write, I like to have my research with me. Iím surrounded by notes, pieces of paper, and of course, my laptop. My wife once accused me of having a mistress whenever I went upstairs to write on my laptop. Itís important to not let your writing interfere with family and friends. I become an introvert only for that time Iím thinking and writing. It takes a while to decompress, much like a diver returning to the surface. In many ways as a writer, you become two people. Itís a little strange, but exhilarating. Try not to write more than two hours at a time before you come up for air. My best times are late in the evening or early morning, but pick a time that works for you. The important thing to remember is that once you begin the process, try to write something everyday. This keeps the momentum going.
