My Writing Routine :
By author Jack Strange
I fit my writing around my other commitments. If I have a business appointment first thing, I’ll shower and be at my desk by 7.30 am with a coffee and an urge to put my thoughts on virtual paper.
I’ll break off for the appointment, then resume work until the next interruption comes along – which could be another appointment, or chores set for me by my wife (eg cutting wood for our wood-burner, or mopping the floors. I’m a bit like Cinderella really!)
Once I’ve dealt with the latest thing to hit me, I’ll be at my desk again, armed with a refill of coffee.
Some days I’m just too busy with other commitments to do any writing. But most days I’ll find a way to get something down, even if it’s only a few hundred words. I aim to write more days than not.
I always have several projects on the go: at least four novels, a dozen short stories, blog posts, interviews, and so on. I never suffer from writer’s block because I have so much to say.
Sometimes, when dusk falls and I’m planning a long evening of writing, I’ll stimulate the creative juices with a tumbler of whiskey. Or two. Whiskey and writing seem to go together rather well. But I never allow myself to get stupidly drunk – not until I’ve penned my last sentence of the day, anyway.
So that’s it.
My routine – which isn’t at all routine.
It works for me.

About the Author:
The mysterious Jack Strange hails from the town of Huddersfield, in West Yorkshire , England. He’s a man with a checkered past, having worked in a morgue, been a labourer, and a salesman. He’s dug holes… professionally (to what end, he refuses to say – sales? corpses? possibly both?), even more terrifying – he’s a former Lawyer.
He enjoys parties and keeps himself fit (the kind of fit that makes you think he may engage in fisticuffs with Vinnie Jones on a semi-regular basis, or possibly drink stout with both hands while also throwing a perfect game of darts.) He is allegedly married with two adult daughters. They have yet to be located for comment.
