Where Writers Write - Jodi Picoult

Jodi Picoult starts her working day at 07:30.  She says, ‘I go up to my office. It’s just two floors up in my house. I first deal with all my emails. I get about 200 emails every day and I answer all my fan mail myself. I don’t have an assistant. After that I work. I write until 15:30, and then I magically become a mom again.’

Jodi writes five days a week, and takes weekends and school holidays off. Her mother and her agent are her first readers.

Jodi Picoult’s Top Three Writing Tips

  1. Read a ton. Reading will inspire you. It will also help you find out where you belong as a writer.
  2. Write every day. Treat writing as a job. There is no such thing as waiting for the muse. If you want to to be taken seriously as a writer, take writing seriously.
  3. Do not stop in the middle of your first book. Finish it. No matter what. All writers go through this. It’s more of a fear of not being good enough that makes you stop. You think, ‘What if I’m not as good as I thought I was?’ Do not allow it to stop you. If you don’t finish that first book you’re making life difficult for yourself.
