    Writing day schedule?

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by AVCortez, May 5, 2013.

    I'm gearing up for a big day writing content for my WP-blog, and was thinking about my schedule. It's not written down anywhere but as someone who works from home I follow it pretty religiously.

    9:00 - wake up
    9:10 - breakfast ritual of 2x cups of coffee, 2xCigarettes. Have a chuckle at 9gag.
    10:00 - Chat to partner before she leaves for work
    10:30 - Watch the News/check blogs, email, forums
    11:00 - Start writing/graphic designing/miscing
    PM
    8:00 - Partner finishes work, so I start cooking dinner (unless she is getting take-away).
    9:00 - Finish work, hang around with partner, usually watch a movie.

    Does anyone else work from home or have a schedule when they have the day free to write? Any strange rituals, like my breakfast?

    I always do it on Saturdays since I have Judo practice on fridays, and because it makes me sore, I take today to rest and write. I also freewrite/draft in some of my classes if we're not doing anything important. On occasion, I might write even though I should be doing something else. Guess it shows how much I like writing.

    I work from home the vast majority of the time. I'm a morning person, so I like getting up early; the latest I rise is about seven a.m. I have some breakfast and waste a lot of time surfing the net, then, depending on what I have to do that day, I get to work around eleven or so. I make dinner around seven or eight, then work another hour or two afterwards.

    Right now, though, I don't have any projects on the go, so I have a lot of time. I work on my stories; I study math, history, and so forth when I get a chance; and I help out my partner/roommate, who is disabled. Lots to do.

    I spend all day glancing at the computer and fearing the daunting task of writing until the that garish light of day fades. Once the quiet of night sets in I write until the sun comes up. school, work, gf, kid, the rest of the week until my days off, and repeat. for some reason i only write well when a) the sun is hidden by a storm or b) its nightime.

    Fatigue quietens the logic centre in the brain, so you feel more creative at night.... Doesn't explain the storm thing.

    i live alone, so i can work from 6-7am to as late as i need/want... usually quit for the day by 7-8pm...

    first thing in the morning, i deal with whatever mail has come in overnight... then i eat breakfast while posting here and on the other 2 writing sites i currently belong to... after that, i take care of mentees' and clients' needs, followed by whatever i may be working on of my own...

    and i don't do weekends, holidays, vacations... just day and night...
