What kind of writer are you? Do you wait to the last minute to write your piece? What kind of habits do you have that make you a more productive writer?
As a writer, I find it hard not to not think about writing. I look at someone and wonder what kind of character I could turn them into and what characteristics borrow from them and add to a character I already have in a piece of fiction I am working on or worked on in the past.
I won't lie and say that I physically write something everyday, but I will say that I am constantly working on something in my head. I am always looking around, be it reading a news article, a work of fiction or non-fiction, and I am always watching movies and television to see how they build a character and tell a story. I watch enough television and movies to know that there are good formulas and some really bad formulas for telling a story, but sometimes the formula can be ignored if the characters grow.
I find it hard to always find time to unwind and take a break from writing, because I am always thinking about writing. It might be better ways to edit a piece of writing, or just the simple search for the right title for a piece of writing I am working on at the moment.
I wish I could find more time to unwind, but I haven't found a way to unwind. I am in search for the perfect story, and I am sure it doesn't come as a shock to every writer out there, because artist are always working on their craft to a point they never rest.
