As October pre-holiday madness sets in, I'm juggling Halloween/Samhain, Thanksgiving, and all the December holiday stories and blogs. It's a crazy time.
I thought I'd compare now with eighteen months ago, when I first took up this topic.
Who needs sleep, anyway?
Once again, I’m at my computer in the single digit morning hours, carving out a little “me” time. Actually, it’s time I give to the characters populating my head. The ones who insist on getting out to stretch their legs when I should be sleeping. The ones who have chosen me to put their story to paper after some fashion. The ones I hope I can do justice with my words.
This hasn't changed. Still all those virtual people running my life.
In the normal working hours of the day, I’m at my “real” job, taking care of obligations and the mundane details of living: laundry, dinner, taking the dog to the vet.
Interesting. This is about the same. Add in the holiday prep, and it's same-old, same-old.
In the evening, the career I'm building takes over--long hours at the computer, e-mail, and the ever-present promo obligations.
Now, my first full-length novel is out--has been since Friday July 13th, 2012.
Whirlwind blog tours, Tweting, Facebooking, chatting.
The rest of the night?
Me time. Sleep time. Lately, averaging about five hours a day.
When do you write? Early morning? Late at night? Lunch hour? How are you managing the holidays?
