- Do you have a writing routine? Share what works for you.
Helen Baskerville Dukes: My writing routine changes when I have project goals and timelines. Those routines consist of taking multiple breaks throughout the day. I feel moving around allows my brain to relax and form logical creativity. Once I’m up in the morning, I make myself a cup of tea, pray and then begin writing. I try not to write late at night because I get very little done when fatigue sets in.
- What subjects would you like to write about in future projects?
Helen Baskerville Dukes: For future projects, I would like to write about social issues, relationship conflicts, family drama and American culture. I like mystery, drama and romance and plan to frame stories around these genres.
- What is writing to you in one sentence?
Helen Baskerville Dukes: Writing to me is the ability to freely express my thoughts and experiences in a way that my readers can make connections with the characters and themes to leave an everlasting impact.
