I write mostly on the weekends. I used to write weeknights after finishing work, but just lately it’s all I can do to stay awake. So I write on Saturday and Sunday. I find I can think clearer.
I too love looking up other writers to see how they write – although at times this can be daunting. Stephanie Myers claims that she wrote Twilight over several months. I think but don’t quote me, that she used to write after breastfeeding her baby in the middle of the night. Really I say, it didn’t take you years and years, and then another million to edit.
When I read stories like Stephanie Myers it almost make me want to give up – I obviously don’t have what it takes if I can’t write a book as quickly as she can.
