I recently was interviewed about my book coming out this month. The interviewer asked me a lot of questions about my writing process. I never really thought about some of my habits and wondered what some of my fellow writers do to get themselves in the zone. One of the things I do is have a hot cup of coffee or tea at hand during the day and early evening. Sometimes later at night, I'll have a glass of wine, but only one.
I also like to have music in the background rather than total quiet. I have a few favorite movie tracks I listen to depending on what I'm writing. Today I need heroic music and listened to the soundtrack from THE RETURN OF THE KING. What about you?
