Marshall Kirkpatrick, of ReadWriteWeb fame, has a personal blog as well. Yesterday he posted his new writing routine, and I just love the simpleness of it.

1. Find story idea
2. Reach out to sources for info
3. Research online using various magic research tools, while I wait for sources to get back to me
4. Stop and think
5. Talk to sources, maybe research some more based on what they say
6. Write!

Kirkpatrick needs to spend no more than two hours doing that, but you can steal it for your own writing. It would also depend on what kind of story you’re working on.

How do you find, research and write your blog posts?
