I’m just going to put it out there – I don’t write all the time. It’s a great daydream – to be able to write when you wake up until you go to bed. Every now and then I have a whole weekend to myself and during those rare moments, I do write a lot. But those moments aren’t that many. In this post, I will tell you the main things I do when I’m not writing – aside from mothering, that is, because that never stops.
My day job as creative director of a social media and digital marketing agency takes most of my day. I don’t have any issues with that because it’s a role I absolutely love. So when I switch between writing and my day job, it’s doing one thing I love for another thing I love. Also, when you run a small business you put a lot of passion into it. Same goes for writing.
The pile of TBR books on my bedside table is ridiculous. And that’s excluding what’s on my ereader’s list! I keep saying, I need two lifetimes before I finish my TBR. Reading, however, is such a pleasurable thing to do that I so don’t mind adding to my list. Also, if you want to write, reading is the first thing you need to do – and read a lot! Read in different genres, by different authors and different articles.
This is one side of the book writing territory that takes far longer than people think. Do you know how many times I read my manuscript before it gets printed? I have lost count! So when I’m not writing, I’m editing my next books – and articles, and blog posts and social media posts. And so on and so forth.
You didn’t guess this did you? I love playing games. Ever since I was a child I’ve been playing computer games. Now it’s on my mobile phone – mainly because it’s the handiest thing I have. There are around five games I play all the time, and they’re not related to word games. Some of them are games that you find most YouTubers talk about on their channels. My daughter loves it when I scream in frustration when I lose.
