What’s a typical day for a writer?

Standard

A typical day for me has me bouncing back between projects. I’ll usually spend the first 20 minutes of the morning doing laundry, dishes, eating breakfast, etc. before settling in to check emails. Once all my emails are responded to, I’ll begin work on editing a magazine, writing articles for a PR client, or contacting advertising clients to work on their ad copy. When a magazine (that I edit) gets close to deadline, I often find that much of my day is spent “managing” rather that writing. That is, shuffling emails back and forth between clients and designers, keeping the publisher up to date, trying to fill last-minute holes, etc. I rarely have a “slow” day, but when I do I try to work on my Web sites…and now, my blog.
