Here are the top things in my life that help and/or distract from writing and editing on a daily basis. (in no particular order)
Red wine is can sometimes release the stress from my crazy life enough to let me focus on my WIP and get some words down. However, too much red wine and I turn into a loafer who just wants to eat pizza rolls and watch Will & Grace reruns.
- Day job
40 hours a week is dedicated to being a graphic designer for a large printing company. Every day, I get to design anything from business cards to vinyl wraps that go around cars. It’s a fun gig, but definitely cuts into my writing/editing time.
- Qwerkywriter S Typewriter Inspired Retro Mechanical Wireless Keyboard
Sometimes the best kind of satisfaction is the click-clack sound of typing on this amazing keyboard. My word count goes up quickly when I’m working with this piece of joy!
The internet is a vast and wide blackhole of information. It allows me to research everything I need to know for my novels—hopefully, without landing on any government lists. Thanks to street view maps, I can travel anywhere and know exactly how to write a scene. However, sometimes this leads to that and the next thing I know I’ve been watching videos of corgis for an hour.
My little one has inspired a few one-liners in my current WIP. And though I couldn’t adore her more, she is a complete distraction when it comes to sitting down to write. But you know what? She’s totally worth it!
