A Day in my Writing Life

My schedule is so hectic during the day; I often have little time for personal writing. I’ll be writing reports for my clients but few articles or on my Podcasting book. That writing comes during the night.

To be honest, I must fight off extreme fatigue and forgetfulness due to a chronic condition I possess. Coffee is my new best friend and I feel like leaving my entire estate when I die to Juan Valdez. I can relate to why people drink so much coffee.

My office looks like Yucca Flats after the blast. But creative people are not necessarily the most organized and I hold true to that statement. Everything is within reach and I throw out paper I haven’t looked at every three months or so. It’s important to write every day to keep your creative juices going.
