March at WVRA = Writing rituals, superstitions, and habits! #Romance

Writers are as individual as the fingerprints they possess.

Each one will have their own style of writing, their own voice when they tell a story.

What you may not know is that each one has their own writing habits, too.

Maybe it's a special drink or food. Maybe it's a unique pen or a favorite soundtrack.

This month we explore the rituals and customs of the Warwick Valley Romance Authors.


Personally, I'm pretty simple.

I need my coffee.

I can write on a computer, in a notebook, on a piece of scrap paper. Not a problem.

I can write at home or in a waiting room or a coffee shop.

But, I almost always have coffee close at hand.

Usually regular coffee. Oh, I might enjoy a Venti Caffe' Mocha Breve w/ 2 sweeteners and extra whip cream if its available, but 8 out of 10 times I'm on my couch.

Let's just say it's a really good thing there isn't a Starbucks closer to my house.

What do you think? Have any good or bad habits that you can't do something without?

  1. Fortunately, I can do without the coffee. I do like to have music though.

    1. I would love to listen to music, but I sing too much and don't write enough. :)

  2. Coffee is a biggie for me, too. Though over the last few years, I've had to cut down to two to three cups that I drink before noon or else I'm up all night. After noon I have to switch to {gasp} decaf (the horror!!!).

  3. Yes! Coffee!!! Lots and lots of coffee!!
