If I am in a writing mode, and have a couple of spare weeks, I do office hours every day…. I start really early in the morning, about 7am, and work until noon. If it’s going great, then I keep going, if not then I do something else. There are always distractions and everything intrudes but you figure out how to write wherever you are and whatever you are doing. You know, I have written songs with a baby on my shoulder, screaming in my ear. You learn how to write on the train and on the car. I jot things down. But it’s best when I can shut the door and plough through.
