My schedule has been a little wonky lately, so I've been thinking a lot about what my ideal daily writing schedule would be like. It's not a possibility with Michael on a very normal 9-to-5 work schedule, but this is how I would live if I could:
Late morning: Wake up, eat breakfast, and go right to the barn to spend some time with my horse.
Mid afternoon: Come home and put in my work hours. I think I would write a little more this way, as I would be able to work uninterrupted through the evening, instead of stopping to spend time with Michael. I would take a short break for a snack or a late lunch, but I'd probably eat at my computer while blogging or reading other writers' blogs.
Late evening/night: Stop working, eat a late dinner, and watch a movie or read for a bit before going to bed.
I imagine I would probably stick to this schedule seven days a week, and just take a couple of days off here and there when my workload allows it. In the summer it would be a bit different, as I would rearrange my schedule to go to the barn in the evenings, when it's cooler.
Of course, I wouldn't trade Michael in for anything, even the ideal schedule, but this is how I think I would function if I had a little more freedom with my time.
Does anyone have a similar schedule, and if so, how does it work for you? I want to live vicariously through you, so please tell me!

Since my kids are now out of the house, I get up around 7-ish and get my tea (first thing). Then I watch a little "news" (the Today Show is not necessarily news) before heading to the study at 8. I check blogs, post to mine, and maybe hit Facebook. Then at 9, I'm working. I stop at noon to see What Not to Wear and then back to the dance from 1 to 5 or later. Evenings are in this order: exercise, make dinner, watch tv, drop like a stone into bed.
Wait a sec. YOU are old enough to have kids who are out of the house?!
That sounds like a productive schedule. My REAL schedule is not that regular, or that productive. Mental note: Post on my REAL schedule sometime soon...
Am I old enough? I love you, Katharine. :))
They're not out of the house as in elementary school - they're out of the house as in college and post-college.
I had them when I was 5 and 9, you realize....
Oh, you're the one in the Guinness Book of World Records...
Seriously, I see your picture all the time in blog comments and such, and I figured you were, oh, late 20s or early 30s. :o)
