Q: What’s your writing schedule?
A: My writing schedule is a work in progress at the moment. I set myself the target of writing at least 1,000 words a day when I’m working on a story. To start with, that meant hurriedly writing a few words here and a few words there throughout the day before finishing off whatever words I had left to write when the family went to bed on a night. With this story, I set the alarm early (about 5 in the morning) and tried to get the words done before I went to work. That seemed to work pretty well, so I might stick with that. Finding the time is always a struggle though, and can’t see that changing any time soon!
