It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time for my weekly spotlight features, “What’s on your desk, Wednesday?”, where we take a visit to see what’s on somebody’s desk and have a good old nose around. (No kidding!) So without further ado, let’s meet today’s desk, I mean guest…
Welcome to where stories are created, from the desk of author Amy Romine
Sassy Brit : Tell us about your writing routine:
My writing routine is somewhat sporadic – with a full-time job, four kids, a dog, three cats and a wonderful boyfriend I have to schedule time – literally. I also volunteer at the Dennis R Neil Center for Equality in Tulsa, as well as teach two writing classes for Writing Warriors. Like I said I am BOOKED, so my wonderful PA has to schedule times on my calendar for me to stay on schedule with my writing goals. Everything from blog posts, guest posts and actual work on my current project.
Scheduling for me is KEY! Cannot survive without knowing what I am doing and when. While this sounds anal and counter-creative, it is a must to meeting my numerous goals and honestly keeping me sane. I will sit awake at night thinking about all the stuff I need to do and stress about when I will have time t do it all. Scheduling keeps the anxiety at bay!
As you can maybe see. I have post it’s, reminders and a picture of my Mom. There is even a post-it saying What Would Mom Do?
My Mom is my anchor, and I rely on her heavily.
When I actually write – like this moment—I am sitting on my bed with my little padded writing thing. I have a cup of water on the bedside table, and the animals are snoozing all around me. It is quiet and awesome. Sometimes I have my headphones on listening to my playlist, and sometimes I am just listening to the sounds of the house. Kids talking, walking up and down the hall. BTW I have recently discovered that all 14-year-old boys are LOUD. Good lord, it is like a heard of hippos in my house!
After I finish this post, I will be working on the last piece of a short story collection I will be offering for FREE to all of my Newsletter subscribers. If you are interested, please sign up! HERE – https://mailchi.mp/11b0398d5a48/amyromine
SB: What’s the weirdest thing on your desk?
AR: – There is a shiny wooden box on the corner of my desk. In it is a gift a friend gave me 2 Christmas’s ago. It is a metal microphone, the note says – ‘for when you need to drop the mic!’
SB: The most useful item?
AR: – My highlighter! I use it to alert me to MUST DO items and important dates on my calendar.
SB : Three words to describe your desk?
