Daily Writing Routines – the Endless Topic

Brain Pickings has this interesting page with famous writers reporting on their daily writing routines. Never have I read such a varied set of practices! It gives me hope that my own erratic routines will yield good work. I especially like the writer who said naps were essential to his creative process. They are to mine, so I can enter that between state that blends dream into awareness and words.

Brain Pickings is a find for writers, self-described as “a human-powered discovery engine for interestingness, culling and curating cross-disciplinary curiosity-quenchers, and separating the signal from the noise to bring you things you didn’t know you were interested in until you are.”

I put poetry and prose before business every day, much to my financial peril. But the creative gateway allows all the later work to go well, I find. And late at night, editing works well for me. What’s your writing practice?
