Can I Squeeze in One More Word? #MFRWauthor

We’re at Week #31 in the #MFRWauthor Blog Challenge – thanks for stopping by! This week, the topic is “a day in my life.”

Prepare to be bored, lol…

First of all, how I spend my day depends on which day of the week we’re talking about – a work day or a weekend day. Both types require caffeine, just in varying degrees.photo by Robin Michaela

On work days, I’m up at 5:00 a.m., trying to get the details of the day out of the way so I am free to work on my ebooks when I get home in the evening. It’s in the wee hours of the morning that I write my blog posts, check social media, and answer emails. That way, when I get home after work, I can write without interruption – unless it’s a day to run/train.

I’m a runner with seven half marathons (13.1 mile races) under my belt. I’m signed up for my first full marathon (26.2 miles and I’m terrified!) in January, 2018, so long training runs are going to start ramping up next month, which will really bite into my writing time towards the end of the year (some runs will be 5-6 hours long. Yes, I #amcrazy). photo by Robin Michaela

On weekends, I sleep in until about 7:00 a.m. (because, that IS sleeping in when you’re normally up and at ’em by zero-dark-thirty). I get my writing done around errands, running, and social time – as much writing as is humanly possible in the rest of the day.

The bottom line is that I #amwriting in every spare moment of every single day and I’m always wondering how can I squeeze in one more word. And, if I’m not working on my manuscript, I’m working on marketing for my romance books (for instance, writing this blog post).

I bet many (dare I say “most”?) authors have a similar work ethic.

Okay, time for you to wake up from this snooze fest and visit the other authors in this blog challenge to find out if their days are more scintillating than mine:

    Some may frown on this, but having just read about your running and your ambitions for that marathon in January, I count my own exercise complete through the end of the year! I can’t even wrap my mind around running for 5-6 hours at a time. I may have to take today off just to recuperate! Enjoyed your post 🙂

      Well, we’ll see how it goes, Sherry. It’s hard enough when I have to do 2-3 hour runs for a half marathon. I am really dreading the 5-6 hour ones! But, I’m only going to do one of these races EVER and I want to be able to finish it upright, so I’ve gotta prep for it. Believe me, I’m right there with you – I’m ready to forget the whole thing and go grab some wine, lol. Enjoy your weekend!

    Good luck with the training! I envy you and the running. I can barely find the motivation to go for a walk. LOL I need to do better.

    Yes most of us seem to have to write when we can fit it in. Other commitments need to be tended to, but somehow we manage to get it done.
