I'm gearing up to start a book. I've talked to a couple authors and they have these rituals they go through before they'll start. One guy I know has to have a Mountain Dew and just the right music playing and possibly a toy Samurai sitting on his desk. Hmmm. Another woman I know has to be in a cabin, far away from anyone and any distractions. Okay. I guess I'm kind of boring. I just need a lap top and a few hours of quiet. But since I do write romance, maybe I should get a Ken and Barbie to sit on my desk? But since I actually despise Ken and Barbie, this might have a negative impact. But I admit It, I'm a little jealous of the Samurai toy. I've also sworn off Dr. Pepper forever, so it'll be me and a bottle of water. I'm feeling very insecure about my writing rituals now. And sooo many authors I talk to have very specific playlists that they listen to when they write. That would drive me insane. How would I get any writing done if I'm singing along with Cee lo? What do you guys do? Anything inspiring? Anything fun? Or should I just ignore the rituals and get down to business?
