  1. Nice as always! I’m glad y’all have some routines.

    My routine is… not really a routine. I do things more willy-nilly, which doesn’t get me far enough in some ways but it allows important things (such as day job and relationships) to be important. Just like you guys said preventing burn-out is important, I think maintaining relationships and being able to participate in human adventures enriches stories. To me, without those experiences, the writing will seem too dull and self-oriented.

    1. Glad you enjoyed listening, H. 🙂 We appreciate the support.

      Have you always done things willy-nilly?

      You are so right, connecting to people, being in relationships does enrich stories. It’s why even introverted writers need to step outside, and build connections – stories created in a bubble don’t do so well.

      1. I think I’ve always done things willy-nilly. I don’t remember ever planning things very well. Even in grade school, the only reason I ever did a planner was because I was forced to. I usually just memorized what my homework assignments were.

        I’ve never been organized, and no matter how much I try, it doesn’t work out.

      2. I think it’s important to find what works best for you as there truly is no “one size fits all” method.

        I think it’s awesome you could memorise your homework assignments.

        I would write mine down…badly… then when I came to do it, my notes didn’t make enough sense! lol
