Write On

Boy Wonder is back in school which means I'm back in my writing routine. 

Feels.  So.  Good.

Not that I don't enjoy listening to Miley Cyrus or the Nazi Zombies from Call of Duty 5 while I'm trying to write.  Really.  Sometimes, I can even tell the difference between the two.  And, I must say, I'm proud to have memorized the lyrics to "Ice Cream Paint Job."  Cream on the inside, clean on the outside.  Check.  Also, my basketball skillz are the shizzle.   Show up at my house? Better bring your A game.  I'll put a clown suit on your  . .  .anyway.  We've all had a splendid summer.  Together.

But now . . . I'm back to doing my thing and it's been raining for three days and someone I love sent me chocolate and I am so into my next noveI I may flip smooth out.  All of that to say I missed my writing routine. 

I know some folks go to a coffee shop or library.  Not me.  I like the quiet, the solitude. 

Here's my ideal writing routine:

6:00 a.m.  Up and dressed.  (Plus One squeezes fresh orange juice for us every morning -- no joke.)
7:00 a.m.  Drop Boy Wonder off at school/football practice
7:00 - 7:20  Drive home with the car stereo cranked -- lots of Texas country and Kings of Leon right now.
7:20 a.m.  Return home to an empty, quiet, dark house.  Turn on a single lamp.  Fire up the laptop. 

Write on.
