It's 90 degrees and sunny, so for today's #WritersRoutine we're talking to @mandykate whose novel PERENNIALS is the ultimate summer read:
What do you eat/drink to keep yourself charged throughout a writing day?
Coffee, coffee, coffee! It’s so lame, but my brain only works at half-capacity without it. I like healthy snacks like Lara Bars and hard-boiled eggs keep me fueled throughout a work day; if I eat junk food, I’ll crash. In a perfect world, I would drink lots of water, too, but I almost always forget to.
Where/When do you write?
I switch off between writing from an office space that I rent in Brooklyn and working from home. The office space is amazing for productivity, but if I’m feeling lazy, or have a bunch of books I need to schlep, I stay home.
I’m not at all a morning person – my typical day at the office is from around 11 until 6 or so. The days that I’m home tend to be longer but more filled with stopped and starts: looking out the window, cuddling with a cat, etc. I have also been known to pull my laptop into bed with me at one in the morning. I can’t really predict when an idea is going to strike.
