So, I thought I would give you some idea of what my writing life is like.
Because I'm not a morning person, there is no early writing. My day starts with me falling out of bed about ten minutes after seven. Notice I said work starts at eight? Thank goodness I'm low maintenance, I don't live too far from the office, and there is coffee at work. Quick shower, dress and out the door by 7:40.
Nine hours later, I'm headed back home. My brain is so tired I sometimes have a hard time unlocking the back door. Kidding, but again, I bet you get the picture.
Next is a well deserved cocktail while watching the nightly news.
Sometimes, I feel a little better and open up my work in progress and write a few hundred words. Most nights though, I don't get out of my recliner until time for bed, usually around 9. What no dinner? Yep, some nights I'm too tired to fix anything.
So when do I write? Weekends. And if I feel like lugging my laptop to work (which isn't often), I'll get a few words during lunch.
Sadly, all this doesn't translate to creating a lot of books. But, it's what it is until I can live my writer friend's life and stay home. Although, I'll probably never have a house keeper and forget that whole husband thing.
