My Writing Routine

Yesterday, on one of those rare occasions when my sister takes interest in writing career, she asked me about my routine. This was an interesting question because I wasn’t sure if I have one. So I logged what I did for the next 24 hours to see if there was a pattern. This is what I got.

        11am:       Wake up

        11:30am:  Eat, check email, and stalk people on Twitter

        12pm:       Hit the gym and run errands

        3pm:         Eat again and write 2,000 words for new manuscript

        5:30pm:   Work on art projects, storyboards, and pre-production paperwork

        10pm:      Play around on YouTube and Twitter

        11pm:      Eat again and stalk my agent on Gcaht

        12am:      Reread and edit previous manuscript (line edits, proof pages, outlines, etc.)

        3am:        Read trashy romance e-book until I fall asleep

        4am:        Pass out

And the cycle starts all over again until the weekend where I either write for 8 hours straight or go over the stuff I wrote during the week and deleting half of it. Riveting, I know, but that’s the life of a hermit writer. Not everyone has the same schedule as I do, but I’m enjoying it while it lasts. The closer I get to release date of LIVING VIOLET, the crazier things are gonna get. Who knows, I might get to see what morning looks like.

What's your routine?

  1. I think you need to get more sleep! I only write on the weekends and the 1 (maybe 2 if I'm very lucky) writing day I have during the week. I find it hard to write on days I work, because my job just wears me out mentally. In the mornings I read and comment on blogs and in the evenings I beta read, write my own blog posts, and edit. And, re: your release date, YAY! Good crazy, right? Most of it, at least?
