Do you warm up before you start on your #WIP ?

I write often at a food court in one of the shopping malls in the neighbourhood. Today I have 600 words already under my belt when I set off, so I do not feel that fear which always accompanies an empty page. But I do have to start a chapter, and that is hard.

Sometimes the best way to write is just wait for it to come, and surround myself with the hum of conversation, with the clatter of cutlery thrown against ceramic plates, the muted screech of chairs drawn out from under the tables, the whir of the food processor as yet another milkshake is born.

Writing, Publishing

But my current approach to is: keep working at your writing, keep sending things out, but don’t be too crazy about being published, everything in its own time. Polish your craft, so you don’t put something out in to the world that would make you cringe later.
