How do writers work? Stephen King, in his book On Writing used to tell people that he worked everyday but his birthday, the Fourth of July and Christmas. He then admitted -- he lied!! He works everyday because working is what makes him happy. He just didn't want anyone to think he was a geek!!
Writing makes me all sorts of happy, too. But alas, I am trying to cut back on my hours and work like a real person works instead of "Oh, NOW!!! I have to write this scene NOW!!"
I started "Office Hours" this week, limiting my writing time to four to six hours a day, six days a week with Sundays off.
So I took Sunday off.
I did the laundry, cleaned my office, accepted an exchange student (from France, arrives in two weeks), cleaned the entry way, re potted two plants, mopped the floor, Learned three new computer programs, one blackberry program, woke up old exchange student at 1am her time and packed up three boxes of books to get rid of tomorrow when I run errands.
Wow ... yeap ... yes writers ... we know how to have a good time on our days off! ;)
