3. A Routine for Every Writer

Writer’s Routine covers the how, when, and where of the creative working day with tips, tricks, and inspiration moderated by host Dan Simpson. Whether you’re a disciplined 4 am writer or a dedicated night owl, a writer who sits down at the same time each day or steals time on lunch breaks, commutes, or childcare, Writer’s Routine has wisdom to offer, sharing how writers of all stripes manage life and work. Some recent episodes feature psychological thriller author Jessica Payne on switching genres for success, and memoirist Emma Bamford on scene breakdowns, moving to full-time writing, and switching to fiction. The site includes a web form to submit questions and suggestions for future shows.
