Must try harder.
I keep thinking I need an official writing process. I watched an interview with a famous British author once, and he said he wrote from 6-8am, then took a break, carried on from 10-12noon, took another break, wrote from 2-4pm, took another break, (can you see a pattern emerging), and then finally wrote from 6-8pm. I admire that.
My routine is more like this:- 6am – hit the snooze button maximum amount of times before it turns off. 7-8.30am - run around trying to find clean school jumpers, remind kids that cookies don’t count as breakfast and try to find exact change for school trip/play/party that has to handed in ‘today.’ 9am - exercise (proud of that!) 10-12am - try to write, but get distracted by emptying washing machine, unloading dishwasher, reading author blogs and twitter, chat on Kindleboards, Kindle Users Forum and Facebook. Around noonish – have lunch. After noonish – do admin work for hubbie’s business. 2-3.30pm – think about writing again – end up polishing first paragraph, but fail to make headway on any further sentences. 3.30pm – pick youngest up from school. 4-6pm – catch up with kids, help with homework, more housework, cook amazing *coughs* dinner. 7ish – clear up after dinner, catch up with hubbie, do any admin work/emails/pay invoices that he needs doing ‘now.’ 8.30pm – bring laptop into living room in order to write while I watch tv with hubbie. 9.00pm – get absorbed in TV drama, and endeavour to try harder tomorrow!
