Where Writers Write #2 DeDe Ramey
Let me introduce you to a fairly new author, DeDe Ramey. Her Dalton Skies series has taken off with success and readers can’t get enough. There will be six in the series and the third one is under contract. Let’s see where this dedicated writer writes!
I’m a Texas girl living in Oklahoma. I’ve been married to my very own hero for the past 35 years and we have two kids, Drew and Leah, and one grandson Jude. In 2018 I began writing Romantic Suspense. My books are marketed worldwide so they can be found at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Target and anywhere books are sold.
Where do you feel most comfortable writing and what time of day?
I have a leather chair and ottoman that is my writing spot. I find I can get comfortable, put on some calming instrumental music and disappear into my imagination. Along with my comfy chair and ottoman, there’s a glass top table. I normally have a glass of water or tea sitting on it. My phone sits on one of the arms of the chair because I have a tendency to take notes when I am walking so, I reference it quite a bit. I also have my headphones with me that I put on if my hubby is watching something on TV. And I have a fuzzy blanket that I snuggle up with if I get cold.
Normally I try to get all my running around done in the morning so I can spend my afternoons writing.
Do you have a certain routine you follow to get yourself prepared to write?
Normally I just eat my lunch then get comfortable and dig in to whatever I have been working on.
How long do you write before closing up shop?
I try to write from one to four each day but if I’m into a scene I will continue until the scene is on paper.
Do you use anything to get you in the mood such as music, Pinterest boards, photos, etc.?
I listen to instrumental music unless a particular song has inspired me. Sometimes I will play that song to get back into that feeling I had. I definitely have a Pinterest page with muse photos that I reference as I’m writing.
