A Day in a Writer’s Life
People often ask what my day of writing looks like. That depends on whether I am involved a project or between projects.
When I am writing or editing I start writing early before the sun or rain appears at my window. By noon I’ve often spent 5 -7 hours working so I move on to other interests: volunteering in classrooms, working on crafts or reading my next book club offering.
During the times I’m between projects I spend my mornings on personal writings, write my blogs and create math games for elementary classroom use. I also dedicate more time to crafts and leisure reading.
The between project times may also be laced with uncertainty. Should I start another book? If so, which idea feels ready to begin researching? If not, should I look to my other writing interests or should I take up a new activity? No, not skydiving or bungee-jumping! Maybe I could overcome my mild dyslexia and learn to knit? Probably not. How about Yoga? That’s possible and it might be a good way to dig into my thinking.
I’ll let you know what I decide if I ever come to the point where I have free time on my hands.
