My writing ritual can be summed up in three short steps:
- Fix something to drink and/or eat
- Sit down at desk and bring up document on computer
That’s it. Oh sure, there’s some procrastination along the way….checking Facebook, reading through what I’ve already written, doing some last-minute research, or getting a phone call/family distractions. But if the words are flowing, it’s very simple. I WRITE.
Step one depends on what the muse wants. Mainly it’s iced tea, and I keep it in the kitchen, so I have to get up once in a while. If there are Girl Scout cookies about, my muse likes the Thin Mints or the All-Abouts/Thank Yous. Or if I’ve eaten my stash, then it’s Mint Oreos. Right now, it’s candy corn. Specifically, the Autumn mix. Even more specific, the pumpkins.

What’s my current project? I’m taking my four ‘orphaned’ novellas and making a print anthology. I’ve nearly gotten everything formatted; now I need a title. Go to Kenzie’s Korner and read the blurbs for All She Ever Wanted, Appetite For Desire, Class Reunion, and Off The Clock, and see if anything jumps out at you.
