Writers often discuss their daily schedule. I must confess I am a bit envious since I don’t have one. Maybe I would not enjoy writing as much if I had more time to commit to it. Although, maybe I would take it more seriously and thus find even greater enjoyment in the craft. Hmm… a daily routine. What might that look like?
That schedule might look something like this:
6:00 – 6:30 Prayer and Exercise
6:30 – 7:30 Get the girls ready and to school
7:30 – 8:30 Check email, blog, facebook, twitter
8:30 – 11:30 Writing, Revisions, Critiques
11:30 – 12:30 Lunch with friends or family
12:30 – 1:00 Check email, blog, facebook, twitter
1:00 – 3:00 Writing, Revisions, Critiques
3:00 – 8:00 Pick up girls from school, take them to ballet, baseball etc., supervise homework, prepare dinner, play
8:00 – 8:30 Get girls ready for bed
8:30 – 9:00 Check email, blog, facebook, twitter
9:00 – 10:00 Read
Of course this is only a loose idea of what my schedule could be like. Notice I have not factored in any time for marketing (or chores ;-). I suppose that would come from some of the writing or checking social media time.
What is your workday or dream workday like?
