Ritual and preparation

Morning darling ones. I find when I sit down to write that certain things must be done prior to that. Such as the place not looking like a bomb-site. A certain order must prevail in order for me to get on. Then I have to have my notebook, diary, any development notes, pens etc to hand. So my question is: what do you do before you can write?

Must. Have. Coffee.

And my choons.

Otherwise the house can go to hell. And indeed, anything else. Rid yourself of all distractions and props my child and come forth with me into the light that is--

SELFISH WRITING.

ie. Pay no attention to anything else but your script. Don't answer the phone, door or clean the house. You'll get more done. Honest.

Lucy, I hear you but I just mean picking up the odd towel and stacking the dishwasher.

PD, yes, I have to check e-mails too and ladies don't get me started on the tea and coffee!
