When Im off from
my day job, I begin around 8 am, go to the computer, pull up a completed
rough draft for rewrites or a new project to write fresh. It depends
on how high my energy level is. I usually have one finished rough
draft and two with only a few chapters written. So I always have
plenty to do. Then I eat and work on my writing some more. I switch
over to reading and answering e-malls or sending comments on facebook.
After super, I watch a little TV or read. Back to writing for an
hour or two. I go to sleep and wake up about 4 am and write. I go
back to sleep about 6 am, wake up about 8 am, and do it all over
again. On my day job days Im happy with any writing I do.
Usually it's about four hours of work, but even if its twenty
minutes, Im happy to do some writing. There are times when
I may spend the whole night writing with no sleep and still feel
energized. But to be honest, those days are rare. There are weak
days and strong days but it all balances out.
