Can I share with you? A day in the life of a MWWP. I know what you're thinking. What in the hell is a MWWP. Let me explain. I often write in the weeeee hours of the morning. Before the rooster struts his feathers. I try--never--to write in the evenings. Editing, yes. Writing, a big no-no. Why? Beacuse I come up with words things like: MWWP. Why? Beacuse after 7 p.m. my brain is mush. Guts. And doesn't work worth a damn.
So, what is a MWWP? Mother. Wife. Writer. Professional.
Welcome to my life.
My alarm goes off at 4:50AM
It's now 5:30AM and I'm like: WHERE'S MY COFFEE?
I get ready, make lunches for my children and now it's time for me to sit down and write from 6am-7:30am. So I get my pink writing pen (AKA my computer) and get to work on that word count.
After that, I drop the kids off at school/day care and head to my big girl job. And then I'm all:
WE'RE LATE!!!! LET'S TAKE A SHORT CUT!
Now I'm at my big-girl job where I I evaluate transcripts for eight hours a day, Monday-Wednesday.
I pick my children up at 5:15 then it's time to cook dinner, baths, books then bedtime.
By this time, it's 8pm, my children are in bed, and my husband's like: HONEY, WHY DON'T YOU GET SOME WRITING DONE?
Because at this point I'm a crazy mad woman. But what do I do?
I try. I try to write something....
But this is all I can do....
By this time, it's 10pm...and I'm done. Toast. So I pack my butt up and head for bed.
A MWWP's life. Glamourous, right? I wouldn't trade it for the world.
