When someone asks me this, I have to say write, whether it is freelance work, or my own books. I have done many things in my life, but I haven’t worked for anyone else in over twenty years. In addition, I’m a workaholic, so this usually includes weekends, or part of them anyway if I’m busy with something that I have to finish.
I generally fill my days sitting in front of my computer. I grab a cup of coffee in the morning and head upstairs to my office in my PJ’s or my sweats, and put in a couple of hours of work before I go and get my shower and get dressed for the day.
After I’m dressed and have my breakfast later in the morning, its back to the computer where I usually stay until it’s time to cook dinner. If I get hungry, I graze, as my husband calls it, which means snack as I write. I don’t like to take time out to eat if I’m in the middle of an assignment with a deadline, or on a writing binge with one of my books.
After I clean the kitchen up, it is usually a couple more hours of writing, and then I’ll read or watch something I recorded on the DVR. How did we ever get along without those?
So there you have it. Between all of my writing, I blog, market my books, do email, and apply for more freelance work. That’s my life. There are times I’ll never even leave my house for three or four weeks at a time.
