Mimi asked Elizabeth Gilbert:

Dearest Ms Gilbert, what, if any, is your daily or routined writing regiment.... early AM? Specific place? Just curious what, where and when inspires you. Thank you! Mimi Teller, Redondo Beach CA

Elizabeth Gilbert I'm a morning writer, Mimi. I once heard a yoga teacher say that the decision to meditate begins the night before (when you decide to not have that extra glass of wine, and to go to bed early, in other words, so you will be clean and clear the next morning.) When I'm working on a project, I try to keep farmer's hours — early to bed, early to rise. By 11am, my brain is pretty much finished!
