I’m pleased to bring you a guest post from author Taylor Dean today.  She’s here to talk about a day in her writing life, and to share some information about her new novel, I Have People.  Sit back, relax, and enjoy!


A Day in my Writing Life


To be honest, I keep an offbeat schedule. I’m completely out of sync with the rest of the world. Writing is an isolating profession. Yet, I don’t feel lonely. My characters are alive and well inside my head!

I tend to stay up late. I get some of my best writing done in the wee hours, when the house is quiet and phones, emails, and texts don’t disturb me. Hence, I tend to collapse onto my pillow at around two AM. (A habit I really need to break).  I usually get up around nine or so—a freedom I never, ever take for granted. I spent years raising my four children, driving them to school and every other activity under the sun. It seems a great luxury to be able to sleep in, to have my time belong to me.  At any rate, I digress. After getting out of bed when I want to and not when an alarm clock tells me to, I get dressed, walk on the treadmill while watching House Hunters (LOVE!), clean my house from top to bottom (I’m obsessive), plan dinner, do laundry, pay bills—and THEN I get to work. Ha! As if I haven’t already worked. Usually I’m at my computer by 1 PM. I tend to write till around six or seven at night. Then I take a break with my hubby. We have dinner and watch whatever reality TV show I’m addicted to at the time. My hubby sits through them with me and even acts like he’s interested. (so sweet) Then I go back to my computer and work for another couple of hours before falling into bed. I work long hours. Too long. My favorite quote is: Choose a job you love and you will never work a day in your life. While writing is work, I LOVE it and I enjoy it immensely. Call it escapism. Hence, it doesn’t feel like I’m working. It’s the best job in the world and the most relaxing thing I do all day. Seriously. Cleaning the house is harder! Paying the bills is drudgery. Writing is fun.

So, that’s my day. Most days anyway. There’s always the exception. That’s the beauty of writing though. I can take a day off if I want to. I can spend time with my children whenever they need me. It’s the perfect job for me.
