Though I would never consider myself a morning person, somehow I get the most work done in the earlier hours of the day. For years I've forced myself out of bed way earlier than I would need to be to be able to write for an at least an hour. Once I force myself to sit I just let my fingers type away. First drafts are first drafts for a reason, I'll fix issues later. So long as I get the ideas on paper (or in Word), I'm on the right path.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first 'full length' book I ever read was Stephen King's Misery. I remember being in sixth grade and wanted to seem 'grown up' by reading something that was scary and for 'adults'. I loved every word and flew through it. I've been a King fan ever since!
