I know only two tunes: one of them is 'Yankee Doodle', and the other isn't.
Ulysses S. Grant
My process is messy and non-linear, full of false starts, fidgets, and errands that I suddenly need to run now; it is a battle to get something - anything - down on paper. I doodle in sketchbooks: bits of ideas, fragments of sentences, character names, single lines of dialogue with no context.

Marlon Brando came up to me many, many years ago. He wanted me to do a little doodle for him on the back of an airline ticket.
It just comes out of my subconscious. If you asked me to draw you a doodle, I couldn't do it.
I love jotting down ideas for my blog, so I doodle or take notes on all kinds of stuff that inspires me: the people I meet, boutiques I visit, a florist that just gave me a great idea for an interior-design project, things like that.
I would recommend the short story form, which is a lot harder to write since you have to be so careful with words, until there is plenty of time to doodle through a novel.
