CONGRATULATONS SPOTLIGHT AUTHOR
February is the month of Love; and it is also a time set aside to remember Historical Men and Women of Color who have achieved greatness during their lifetime.
Today is the first day of Rave Reviews Book Club’s Spotlight Author Tour. What a fitting time to host our featured author. Let’s see how she spends her day as a writer.
Gracie, I am pleased to host you and to share your post with my followers.
Gracie’s Writing Process
You will get a kick out of how Gracie prepares to write every day. You may identify with her morning rituals. She tells me after a perfect eight hours of sleep; her body clock gives her a slight nudge. She turns over, stretches and ignores the internal clock. After a few minutes, she hears the internal clock is saying, “get out of bed to take your morning walk.”
Quickly getting dressed, securing the front door and off she goes. Her mind goes into overdrive mode formulating a plot for her next writing session when she returns. She stops to talk with the ducks, turtles, and cranes. She goes by the elementary school to observe parents dropping off kids. She decides if she is going to stop by the corner store to pick up a lotto ticket.
After 1 ½ hours, she enters the back door, kicks off her shoes, makes a hot cup of herbal tea and peels two boil eggs. After enjoying her gourmet breakfast, she decides which room to write in for the day and which device she is going to use.
Before starting, she turns on some smooth music, dance for about fifteen minutes then she is ready to sit and dump everything she formulated in her head while walking. A minimum of 200 words flows onto the paper. She leans back in her chair to admire her work. Nine out of ten times, she will re-write the plot several times. It is now time to take a shower and starts her day. She wonders which community service she will support today?
The Typing begins…….
Expect to see the 3rd book of the Lady Bird series late 2018 addressing Autism.
