Caitlin asked Sarah Dessen:

About how many words do you write a day? Also, do you write by hand or do you type on the computer?

Sarah Dessen I actually don't keep track of words. I write at a computer, at the desk in my home office (although I have been known to write in parking lots/parks/the school pickup line if I am under crazy deadlines). For the LONGEST time I wrote every afternoon from 3-5, which was a holdover from when I first began writing novels after college. I had a morning job and an evening job, so it was the only time I had. Lately, though, I've been doing a couple of hours in the morning, as well. My goal is to write every single day. It has to be a habit, or I won't do it.
