Q: What is your writing day like?

A: None of my writing days are ever the same, but assuming I have no work that day, then my alarm will start ringing to wake me at 7 a.m. I'll ignore until maybe 8:30 or nine, then finally wake up. An hour later I'll roll out of bed, and the first thing I do is power up my computer.

10 a.m., I'm checking my e-mails, eating a healthy portioned breakfast, ignoring the folder containing works in progress.

11 a.m., Workout time.

11:15 a.m., Quit working out earlier than I wanted, check e-mails again, and play videogames. Still ignoring my WIP folder.

Noon, Cheating on my diet.

1 p.m., Feel lots of self loathing about cheating, so I go workout again.

2 p.m., Read some of the books on my reading list, all the while calling it research. Take a nap.

4 p.m., The day is practically over and I hate myself for wasting all that time. I finally open my WIP folder.

4:15 p.m., I take a break from work to check e-mails again, tweet something, then have supper and something to drink to get my energy back up.

5 p.m., The roommates have come home, and my peace and quiet is over. Which is unfortunate because I was about to slide into my writing groove for sure.

10 p.m., Everyone is usually in bed at this time, and now I can finally begin to write out my WIP.

10:35 p.m., Super tired at this point. The words aren't coming as fast as I'd like, and for the thousandth time I remind myself how much easier this would've been if I'd plotted it out before sitting down.

11 p.m., Reading in bed for an hour, then sleep.
