A Day in the Life
After the brain fog that set in following this past holiday weekend, I confess I'm a little clueless this morning regarding a blog topic. Might have been the two drinks of cotton candy vodka I had last night while watching season four of Dexter with my daughter. Yes, I'm a lightweight and I conked out rather easily.
Anyway, I've decided to talk about my ordinary day. It's not in the least exciting. In fact, it's rather dull and despite what some might think I don't sit around in fuzzy, smexy high heeled slippers, a frothy nightie, and a martini at my elbow as I pen my stories. Nothing could be further from the truth.
The scary truth is, things are rather dull around here. I roll out of bed around 8-ish, grab a cup of coffee and immediately turn on my computer to check emails, loops, do promotion work, and blog. Every Tuesday I blog HERE and I have my own blog (which I'm terrible about keeping up with). Sorry...digressing. Again. So after I respond to emails, I write for a couple of hours. I usually forget lunch but will take a break from writing to play on facebook for awhile. I've found fb to be a huge time suck but I love it. Most of the time, I'm alone so it's a nice way to touch base with other people. By early afternoon, I jump in the shower and get ready for whatever errands I have to do. Usually I try to reserve errand-running to one day each week (to get it all done at once) but that hasn't been possible these days. Of course, my daughter is home from college for the summer and that messes with the usually-pat schedule I follow during the rest of the year.
Back to the daily schedule. After I do the errand thing, I might do a few chores around the house and by the time my husband is home from work, I have to think about DINNER. By the time evening rolls around, I check emails again and try to write some more. I'm not much of a tv watcher but there ARE some favorite shows so my Sunday nights are usually reserved for them. I'm into True Blood (yay for the new season) and I'm groaning and sighing about Game of Thrones being over until next year. But mainly, my life isn't at all exciting. I write. I play on the computer. I tend to stay in my jammies most of the time. Of course, when I find myself thinking of what a ho hum life I lead, I think of those who punch a time clock at 8 AM every weekday morning and feel blessed.
In Other News: I have a new book in print. Sequins Saddles and Spurs was released by Ellora's Cave last week. This is a collection of stories by me, Desiree Holt, and Ciana Stone. The stories are also availabe separately as ebooks!
