As a writer, I often get asked about my writing rituals and to be honest they do change depending on the time of year, what my other commitments are and what mood I’m in!
So in all honesty my writing life changes… and changes a lot but one thing that remains the same is the space around me and in an Instagram post I said this:

The picture above is of a highlighted quote in the book ( a great book for authors and creatives alike) by Steven Pressfield called The War of Art.
