I work second shift so I have all morning and afternoon to write as much as I want. I've only been writing about six years so I still consider myself a rookie, but a firm writing routine enables me to get tons of shit down. It's like this: 11:00 am--Coffee and smokes 11:15 am--turn computer on, bust out my pushups for the day 11:30 am--stare at a half-completed second draft, wondering what the fuck I'm doing w/ my life 11:32 am--start getting shit down 1:00-2:00 pm--finish writing for the day, ready for work 3:00 pm--go to work, cry, curse world 12:30 am--return home, still cursing world, turn on computer to write again 12:33 am--say "fuck it," and bust out some porn Yo, pretty much every day is like this, except for the weekends. I'm not much of a poet, so I don't know if such a strict routine would apply to the rest of you, since I think it's more fitting for a prose writer. Anybody else got a mind-numbing routine?
