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.
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).
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:
