What’s a typical day for you?
My days are pretty routine. I wake early, do all the things associated with my personal toilette, walk the dogs, pour myself a cup of coffee and sit down at my laptop on my kitchen table. Generally my old dog will park herself right under my chair to increase the chance of tripping me when I get up. It’s bright yellow and sunny in my kitchen. Outside my yard is filled with green and all sorts of birds. Inside, everywhere I look I see my collections of things — antiques, collectables, little pieces of history — all tickle my imagination. My real desk is actually in the dark basement, but I much prefer it up here where it’s bright and conducive to writing. I check the emails first. I have four for various things, two of which are devoted to writing while the others I use to keep in touch with friends and my political, environmental, animal, and social activism. By 8am I’m ready to create (hopefully). I try to put in an 8 hour day, but unfortunately, my Muse doesn’t always fill my mind with details. I have several books I’m writing at once. It’s crazy I know, but when the story doesn’t flow with one, chances are good it will with another. Right now I’m on a roll with one story. A good day will see at least two chapters and lots of tweaking. If I have edits, then that takes up most of my time and I get very little actual new writing done. I really should run on my treadmill but generally I’ll have some mental blast of creativity whenever I make up my mind to do it! Hmm…I think my brain has struck a lazy deal with my muscles. I can almost here the conversation — if you don’t go run and make us tired, I’ll let her feel creative.
Thank you! It’s a fun giveaway – I do hope my blog post allows a close up of your photo *Fingers crossed*
