A Day in the Life of a Writer

Typically, my day starts with a lot of chaos in the morning before I’ve had time to properly slurp down copious amounts of caffeine through my coffee IV.  I’m sure to step on a Lego while brushing my teeth, yelling at kids to brush their hair and slapping together a few tuna sandwiches with organic mustard.
 
SummerFelixOnce I have the kids delivered safely to their school, I hit up the closest drive thru for another dose of caffeine and head into my office.  Between 674 conference calls that I may or may not actually listen to, I try to organize and return all of my emails and update my calendar for the day.
 
If I actually have coherent thoughts coming from my brain, I know to take advantage and get some of those thoughts out and into some of the writing obligations I have due.  In a given day, I have to write a couple of scripts for my video marketing company, The Draw Shop, bust out blog posts for both The Draw Shop and my own blog, put together a newsletter, write more of my novel, write more for my short story series, and write a screenplay that I’ve been working on. Not to mention all of the other little freelance deadlines I commit to in a given day.
 
No biggie.  Between all of that, I update my social networking sites, because you know, Twitter.  And keep my #365Funny meme alive on Instagram, and, and, and oh AND…..
 
Pick up kids, rush them to all activities, feed them, spend quality time with them and the man in my life and promptly fall into an exhausted heap on my bed.  You know, so I can get my 8 hours of beauty rest to do it all over again.
So, what do you guys want to be when you grow up?
