A Goodreads user asked Kate DiCamillo:

Hello! Do you have any rituals when you are writing or about to write?

Kate DiCamillo Coffee! Must have the coffee. And lights. I always turn on a string of festive lights. After that, it varies depending on the book. Sometimes, there is music that I write to, sometimes not. Sometimes, I light a candle.
