For me sanity is all about scheduling and coffee/wine (depending on the time of day). Those are the only things holding this writer together. I’m not offering these solutions for everyone, just saying that so far these are working for me.
My Schedule for today:
04AM Drink Coffee and Write new book (just kidding about the book)
05AM Visit my Blogger Friends (not kidding) fb and Twitter
06AM Do Line Edits (serious business)
07AM Find more coffee. (absolutely necessary)
08AM See husband, get his plan for the day, eat something.
09AM Work on book (not kidding)
10AM Hike up some trail.
11AM Set plan for week.
12 PM Meet husband at designated place for lunch–this time of year that would be our deck.
02PM Organize publicity for Library, posters and website, talk to sons on phone, make plans with friends for tomorrow.
03PM Check garden. Pick lettuce for dinner. Go to meeting for library.
04:30PM fb and more Twitter. 🙁
05PM Think about dinner. Consider wine, then write instead.
06PM Pour wine. Find husband and hand him marinated chicken for bar-b-que.
07PM Pour more wine. Toss the salad and feel smug. (planted it, grew it, harvested it).
08PM 30 minutes of a Netflix something, decafe and maybe something like a salted caramel treat.
09PM Kindle in bed, read someone else’s writing. Make notes for review.
10PM Face in pillow.
NOW FOR WEDNESDAY.
If you’ve followed me for a while, you know I don’t usually blog on Wednesdays, except for the first Wednesday of each month. And this week is special in a couple of ways. I’m going to co-host the IWSG (Insecure Writers Group) while ALEX takes a well-deserved break. Oh, you might know it as I Was Searching for Gary. Please placate him and tell him you know the real meaning of IWSG. It makes him happy.
And, the UncommonYA group, which has some amazing authors, is going to BLAST me. That means, it’s going to feature Sliding on the Edge. That poor book needs a boosts if ever a book did, so, of course, I’ll blog on Wednesday with some glee.
