Welcome to the second of our My Writing Routine articles. Each week, we bring you the writing routine of a different author, delving deep into their processes, tips, thoughts, and techniques for getting their words onto the page.
Today we peer into the writing routine of author Tim Yearneau
Can you give us a bit of a background about yourself as a writer?
The truth is I never set out to be a writer. To make a short story long, I got a Masters degree in communications at the University of St. Thomas way back in the late 90s. At that time I did a Masters project on trademarks, which I was very passionate about. In fact, the length of my project thesis was the longest they had every seen to date for that program. My advisor suggested that I turn that project into a book. After teaching a few survey classes in Intellectual Property for another university that book idea, which had been percolating in my brain all those years, came to the surface and I decided to write a beginner’s guide to Intellectual Property. It took me a couple years, but I finished the book. But my writing ambitions didn’t go beyond that book.
