Home again, after teaching a full day workshop at Toronto Romance Writers on Saturday. I think it went well – I had fun, anyways – but now it’s back to my regular writing schedule.
I like to teach and interact with people. It gets me out of my little writing cave and always gives me lots of new ideas. Plus the act of teaching – or preparing a workshop – gives me the chance to see things in new ways, usually in order to explain them more clearly. I examined a lot of trends for this workshop, and that was thought-provoking, too.
On the other hand, I also like routine. I like regular schedules – routine makes me a more productive writer.
Either one makes me appreciate the other.
How about you? Would you rather do something different every day, stick to routine, or mix it up a bit?
