So very close to finishing the first (of several) drafts for the new book in progress, my days look like this.
Pre-dawn run does a writer good.
It’s mine! It’s mine! Very little makes me happier than finding a quiet corner in a beautiful library right next to the power outlet. Then I spread out all of my stuff like a dog marking its territory.
Southern California is beautiful in the spring, but I’m on the other side of the glass, the deadline-having side. Back to work.
I plan out my work with color-coded spreadsheets. I tell people this, and they think I’m kidding. I never kid about spreadsheets.
Man cannot live on words alone. Break for lunch, which is food out of a plastic clam shell. Pretty? No. Foodie food? Please. There was lettuce. Let’s call it a win because…
…it’s back to work. Another beautiful library room, although with considerably more company.
Repeat as needed until book is complete, which it isn’t. Not yet. Excuse me while I reapply my nose to the grindstone. In the meantime, feel free to hang out with me on Facebook and Twitter. I pop up there on a regular basis – even during deadline.
