I do most of my writing on my mobile phone, I also have a tablet which I can use if my phone runs out of battery. I write on Google Docs which means I can access my work on any device, as long as I have Internet access. Occasionally, I also write on a laptop. The latter is the best way to correct the thousands of grammar mistakes I make through Grammarly.
Recently, the hard disk drive on my laptop died and I had to buy another one and ask my brother in law to fix it. Which he did and it worked. I find that Google Docs works for me until I need to rewrite then I download the file as a word doc and work on the laptop.
I usually charge my phone overnight and sometimes also at work which gives me enough juice to write my prolific 429 words on the way to and from work. If for any reason, usually one of the cats playing with the cable, the phone fails to charge or if I forget to take my cable to work then my writing day can be ruined and I have to resort to reading a paper copy of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein which I keep in my bag for such emergencies.
On days where everything goes smoothly I write my 429 words while seated on the metro (I have to get the train in the opposite direction first to get a seat) and then listen to an audiobook, currently The Girl on the Train, while walking to and from the metro.
The reason I haven’t been posting blogs for so long is that my routine has been going very smoothly. I understand that 429 words is not a lot for most writers but it works for me. I’ll have finished the rough version of my current novel by July plus have rewritten the first two novels and sent them off to agents. Sooner or later, I’ll probably get around to self-publishing but I don’t think this will stop me from sending new books off to agents. As long as I remember to take my charger.
