Yippee! I’ve been trying for awhile to find a daytime television schedule for April of 1968 when my novel begins and finally found one on, in of all places, Wikipedia. What not’s there? (What’s there that is reliable? is what I usually ask.) But this is helpful. My first week of returning to morning writing has been tough. But Libby, Gwen, Nate, Aunt June and Uncle Nelson, Granddaddy and Grandmama, and the rest of the Kent Creek folks are breathing, talking, walking, eating (and arguing) again. When I have been away from routine writing for awhile, I always need a warm-up week. It is usually slow going at first, but I’ll get there. I am interested in finding out how other writers kick-start their creative writing process when they have been away from it for a time. How do you do it?
