My Writing Routine

Slowly over the last five years, I have becoming a full time author and artist. This is my weekday routing. Weekends are quite different as are “business days.”

I get up around 7:30, I try to do exercise first thing every morning. My waistline is proof that some days I do better than others. However now that I am edging towards 36 winters, my shoulders need me to exercise at least 3 or 4 times a week.

Rosie is unimpressed with my writing schedule. She thinks  more time should be spent cuddling.

Once I get my husband out of bed and drive him to work. I generally get a vanilla latte from the French Bakery near his office. Now if I have other errands, than I do those things. Otherwise I go into my closet and work for an hour or two. I love it the days I get those extra few hours–it feels like I get so much done when I have those two hours!

I still walk dogs so then I do that including walking my own dogs, Rosie and Tycho. Afterwards we eat lunch.

If I am in the middle of a graphic novel, I head into my closet and work on comics until 4 ish or my right shoulder gives out. I still draw and ink them by hand. I use a Wacom Cintique to color them with Photoshop or letter them with Illustrator.

If I am in the middle of a written novel, I either go sit on my couch or head in my closet for writing or rewriting.

Then I come out of the closet and work on dinner, then my husband comes home and we have dinner. We spend a bit of time together then he goes to his video games while I go back to writing/drawing for another four to six hours. I go to bed around 11:30.

Then I sleep and get up and do it all again.
