I am a lucid dreamer; my stories usually start with dreams. I tend to write in two ways: 1) impulsively, in one sitting; and 2) with various degrees of planning. I often write in the morning and edit, review and take notes on possible directions of my current project before going to bed. This way some of my dreams, with conscious direction, deal with some of the issues from my editting and note-taking. I often garden after writing in the morning.
I write on paper with pencil, eraser, dictionary, thesaurus and writer's handbook, then type this up at night. Often I revise and write more while typing, as the story unfolds while I review it.
