Here are mine... @Tin_House: Super Sad True Habits of Highly Effective Writers: Part 1

Whenever I go to a writing conference or poetry festival, someone will always ask "what is your process when you write" or "Tell me about your writing day..."

We want to know the secret details, what do writers do to inspire them to write or how do they start their day...

Tin House has a great article about Super Sad True Habits of Highly Effective Writers, which you must check out here... 

but I thought I'd add mine below--

1)  Wake up
2)  Coffee
3)  check email
4)  Total raisin bran
5)  If working on mss, open mss file.
6)  If working on poems, open about 10 poems (so it doesn't seem serious)
7)  get a snack / more coffee
8)  walk back and forth to the kitchen
9)  turn off the internet
10)  write more

Somehow I manage to get things done...
