Everyone probably has a routine for their morning. Floss, brush your teeth, shave, shower, dress, and so on.

Our patterns are probably different, but the outcome, a clean, presentable, us for the world to see is the goal.

The usual should happen when you start penciling your words and introducing them to the page.

Was there a routine that brought you focus? Was clarity or insight triggered by stretching or focusing on a single scene or bit of dialogue.

Consider a routine to fortify your focus and bring all of those amazing ideas to light. Do it the same way every time, and shun the distractions. Your word count and your editor will love you.
