I go to my office at nine and start by revising the previous day's work, which propels me into the next bit.  I tend to go to sleep planning the next chapter, so I usually know where I'm going.  I write in twenty minute bursts, interspersed with emails, phonecalls, cups of coffee, plus three longer breaks for meals and watching single episodes of whatever boxed set I've got on the go at the time, currently Homicide: Life on the Street.  In between I keep writing; even in the shower I'm still thinking about it.
