I just finished an e-mail interview in which the journalist asked me to “describe a typical daily schedule.” I tried to sound somewhat professional in my answer, but I thought for your Thursday entertainment, I would share my real writing schedule here. This was yesterday:
Drop children off at school. Rush home to begin writing.
Finish calling Telus and the plumber and writing a letter to Service Canada. Tell my husband I have no time to talk to him. I’m writing.
10 – 10:55 a.m.
Pick up son at school.
Lunch and an errand.
Husband requests presence at Home Depot, to choose bathroom faucet.
Son drops bouncy ball into Home Depot toilet.
Finish dousing my hands with sanitizer.
Race back towards daughter’s school.
Son removes wheel from toy car and inserts wheel on his finger, restricting blood supply.
Stop at Melonheads (much closer than ER) and work with friendly hairdresser, bottle of lotion, and pair of scissors to extract son from wheel.
Scream into school to pick up daughter.
Supervise cranky children.
Escape house to attend CWILL BC meeting
Yup, a lot of writing sure got done yesterday. And to top it all off, Min chose a different fixture after I left Home Depot. And it’s hideous.
