Zu Vincent (ZV): I wish I had a great formula to give other writers, but the best I’ve found is to make it a habit. To carve out a daily routine. That routine has varied for me depending on what else life holds. The best schedule I’ve ever had is morning exercise followed by six to eight hours of writing time followed by evening editing. When life gets crazy I at least try to listen to images and language and jot things down before they disappear.
