Do you have any writing rituals?
Chatting with my kids – regularly. They keep me laughing. My kids can really dish out humor. My timing isn’t always the best, though, because my kids are grown-ups with families and jobs. For example, I’ll call and say, “Tim, what was that thing you said last week that made me laugh?” And he’ll be like, “Mom, I’m at work. Can I call you later?” And I’ll be like, “Come on. Come on. I think it was something about cottage cheese.” Anyway, you get the picture. I love laughing. And I need daily doses. Then I attempt to translate that feeling into books. It’s a business way of justifying those silly calls.
