I realize that my last post probably got you closer to understanding what I do every day, but that it still didn’t get you all the way there. I plan to eventually tell you a bit more about my day-to-day routine, but I thought it would be MUCH more fun to tell you what I used to think life would be like as a writer.
Before I became one.
A Day in the Life of a Writer (Fantasy Edition)
9:00 am – Wake to the sound of birdsong. Rise and meander to the kitchen; put on the teakettle. Idle on the deck for a while, overlooking the downtown skyline, teacup in hand.
9:30 am– Enjoy a leisurely hot shower; slip on something stylish; apply makeup.
10:15 am – Turn on the computer. Check email; send witty replies.
11:00 am – Write page after page of pithy, insightful… words.
12:30 pm – Meet writer friends for lunch; talk about writer-ly things. Discuss who has what plum international assignments. Say things like: “I’m scheduled to be in Europe that same week! Let’s meet up in Budapest!” Linger over an espresso.
