Sending lots of fairy writing dust your way!
For today I was thinking of writing rituals. I'm a former bilingual teacher and very anal on schedules and such. Even after I stopped teaching in the public school system, I continued to have schedules. I find it helps me to stay focused and on task.
My writing rituals including blocking in time every day to write. I do take Sundays off because I think it's important to have one day of rest no matter what belief or non belief a person might have.
I find a place to write:
Usually the coffee house. I also have a tea latte.
One big thing for me is having Playlists to help me get into the minds of my characters. For my current project it has more of an edgy flair and for the protagonist's love interest? Country music.
I'm not a huge fan of country music but my character LOVES it and it reflects his personality.
I have an iTunes account and a Spotify account with Playlists from my projects.
**This song really spoke to my character!
Another thing I do is have Pinterest boards that I post photos that reflect my projects.
I'm @ixtumea over there.

Also Diet Dr. Pepper's with lemon slices help too.
Do any of you have any rituals that help you with your writing projects?
