Khadijah Queen Recommends...

"I recommend finding time to write every single day, even when you don't feel inspired. I'm a night person, but since I have a child in school I have learned to wake up early to make writing part of my morning routine, between brushing my teeth and exercise (which I also recommend; my current obsession is Kundalini yoga). Sometimes I write for five minutes, sometimes an hour. If I can't think of anything to say, I begin describing objects in the room as if drawing them. Prioritizing writing first thing helps focus a hectic day—and then the books get written."
Khadijah Queen, author of Conduit (Akashic Books/Black Goat, 2008)
