I may be unemployed at the moment, but I’m currently editing a novel and trying to figure out a plot for Script Frenzy next month. Let’s look at a day in the life of a writer.
Wake up. Eat. Perform acts of hygiene. Dress. Ponder writing but remember that I haven’t checked email since last night, and that was a really long time.
Turn on computer; turn on music, Pidgin, and Firefox. IM people. Check email. Read Twitter before doing so would be more hassle than it’s worth. Read blogs. Cue tab explosion. Bookmark links of interest.
Realize that I’m hungry again from breakfast because the time between dinner last night and breakfast today was a long time. Ponder eating again. Possibly eat again, then return to computer. Look at time; read remaining blogs. Ponder writing, but know that other inhabitants of this house will come in and bother me before I get in the groove. Decide against it. Ponder writing blog post. Decide against it after lack of topic. Apply to jobs instead. Realize that my plans to get out of the house that day have failed yet again.
Eat dinner. Shower. Edit. Write in paper journal. Write blog post. Go to bed. Think thinky thoughts while trying to go to sleep.

I wonder if everyone puts on music when the computer goes on? Interesting….
I wonder the same thing. The silence drives me crazy, which is why I do it.
Haha, that sounds a lot like me. I think being a writer is great yet so frustrating. So you’re participating in Script Frenzy as well? That’s awesome. Do you have any ideas for what you’re going to write?
Good to see I’m not alone. And yes, I’m doing Script Frenzy, but no plots come to mind so far. There are a few weeks left, though.
