Up at 5am, stoves and coffee started, journal writing complete...this is my morning writing ritual, and it never fails to get me going. I find when I deviate from this ritual & spend my time on emails, or websites, or re-reading that last chapter in whatever book I'm currently reading, that's when my writing takes a turn for the worse. Don't get me wrong, these things are part and parcel of the business of writing (research, correspondence, filling the well); but when it comes to character creation, scene, POV, etc, persistence and perspiration are key ingredients (for me) in helping to translate my train of thought to lines on the page.

 

What are your writing rituals?
