Establish a Writing Routine

That is, if you're a writer or blogger.

"Flannery O'Connor sat for two hours every day at a typewriter facing the back of a clothes dresser."
- Kent Haruf

 "I'm a slow writer: five, six hundred words is a good day."
- Shelby Foote

And of course, Virginia Woolf famously said a woman must have a room of her own to write.  It doesn't have to be a room necessarily if space is an issue.  It could be a desk in a corner or a spot you occupy at the library or neighboring cafe.  Just pick a spot where there are no, or few, distractions.  Hopefully, someplace where you can be inspired.

Do you have a writing routine?  What is your instrument of choice?  Do you write in the morning or night?
