I’m a writer, this is how I write

Day one starts by…

  • Waking up
  • Making the breakfast
  • Feeding hay to the guinea pigs
  • Sitting on the sofa
  • Grabbing the iPad and flicking through some sites

Then it’s 9am and I’ve done nothing.

Day two starts by…

  • Waking up
  • Making the breakfast
  • Feeding some hay to the guinea pigs
  • Remembering that I wanted to do some writing
  • Sitting on the sofa
  • Grabbing the iPad and flicking through some sites

Then it’s 9am and I’ve done nothing.

Day three starts by…

  • Waking up earlier
  • Making a coffee
  • Ignoring the guinea pigs
  • Sitting at the computer
  • Opening up the Internet and flicking through some sites

Then it’s 9am and I’ve done nothing.

Day four starts by…

Realising that after yesterday’s success I can afford to take a day off.

Day five starts by…

  • Waking up
  • Making the breakfast
  • Feeding hay to the guinea pigs
  • Sitting on the sofa
  • Grabbing the iPad and flicking through some sites

Then it’s 9am and I’ve remembered I changed my routine.

Day six starts by…

  • Waking up earlier
  • Making a coffee
  • Ignoring the guinea pigs
  • Sitting at the computer
  • Opening up the Internet and flicking through some sites

Then it’s 9am and I feel bad again.

Day seven starts by…

  • Waking up earlier
  • Lying in bed thinking about writing
  • Making a coffee
  • Ignoring the guinea pigs
  • Sitting at the computer
  • Opening up my writing and reading it through.

‘Damn, I’m a good writer.’

Then it’s 9am and I’ve done nothing.
