I used to think that writers sat down and a work of art would spring forth from their fingers fully formed, like Athena from the head of Zeus. I know now that it doesn't work like that, yet I'm still in the process of trying to corral ideas and plots; get the laundry done; write down this amazing idea that I know I won't remember later, do the washing up; read a few stories and take notes; get everyone fed, walked, and watered, and then I can finally sit down and.... blank page.
What are your habits and routines? Do you have any tips for a relative newbie like myself?
