I’ve been asked if I keep a writing schedule. Yes and No. There’s simply no way to strictly adhere to a pre-fixed schedule, just as there’s no way to pre-plan your meals for the next three weeks. There’s only one scheduling rule I have: I write every single day, no matter what.
Sometimes, other obligations get in the way, but I still find time to write. Even if it’s only for 15 minutes, I do some writing each and every day. That’s the only scheduling rule to which I adhere.
I find that if a day passes and I haven’t written something, it makes the day feel slightly incomplete.
