The Writing Sparrow Episode 60 | Writing Routines: Tris OR How to Write with a Baby

Content warning: Please be advised that this episode mentions the author of a certain popular wizarding series as well as the books several times. Please also be advised that the word ‘paedophile’ comes up once but is not discussed in detail beyond the mention. I would like to make it clear that this mention has absolutely nothing to do with my guest’s baby.


Once a quarter, I talk to another writer about their writing routine. We answer questions such as Are you a plotter, pantser, or somewhere in between? ,  Do you write every day? ,  Where does your inspiration come from?,  What’s your beverage of choice?, and many more! At the end of each episode, the writers recommend their favourite book on writing and share their advice for establishing the right writing routine for you.

This month, I talked to Tris, a writer and young mother who’s juggling both like a pro.

Her advice to new mums is to not put any pressure on yourselves. You’re learning to be a mum – cut yourself some slack and take time for yourself when you can.

Her book recommendation is On Writing by Stephen King. Don’t forget to check out the library on my website for all book recommendations from these routine chats! Alternatively, check out my guests’ fiction recommendations.
