The Writing Life

My Morning Writing Routine

I wake up around 06:12 if I am good and 06:44 if I am lazy. I don’t need an alarm, it’s the same every day no matter what time I went to bed. I hit start on the espresso machine, make a skinny flat white. In my pyjamas I write before work, either working on my novel or non-fiction but not both on the same day. At 0815 I do the breakfast for myself and the children then take them to school. When I get back I exercise for 40 min before I start work on my “day job” as an architect. If I have meetings I put on full makeup which takes 20 minutes. If I don’t then I stay in my exercise clothes all day. i.e. hoodie and leggings.
