WHAT TIME DO YOU WAKE UP?
8 in the morning seems to be the time I wake up – whether I like it or not. I’ve never been great at sleeping.
WHAT DO YOU HAVE FOR BREAKFAST?
I usually leave the house and grab a coffee and a chocolate croissant if I can find one. Not everyone lives in Paris, you know…
ONE WORD THAT DESCRIBES YOUR MOOD IN THE MORNING?
Anxious?
WHAT GETS YOUR JUICES FLOWING?
I think that they are always flowing – its trying to find a way to keep them flowing in a particular direction that is challenging. I keep a workbook with me all the time, and I write, draw, and plot things out by hand. Writing things down seems to help.
