A Weekend Writing

What does a writing weekend look like?

For the busy writer, weekends are often the only time they have to write. Most of the time, I write on Saturdays and take Sunday off. This weekend I'm working on a tight deadline for a new Love Inspired Historical that comes out in December of this year. So it's a full writing weekend.

What does that mean? Well, I'll be writing all weekend.

This is how today looks. Saturday: Up at 7:30am - in cottage by 7:40 with a glass of coffee. Computer on, write until noon. Run in make brunch for hubby and I. Eat, kiss hubby goodbye for the afternoon and back out to cottage. Sweet hubby will "probably" head to town for movies and fun with friends, but when he returns I'll run back into house fix dinner (if I'm lucky he'll bring dinner home) eat and then back out to write for the rest of the evening. Not sure what time I'll quit, depends on how well I've done during the day.

I know many of my writing friends have schedules similar to this. Not all my weekends look like this but this weekend ... it does.

Anyone else writing the weekend away?

That would be me! I have a Feb. 1 deadline, so any "spare" time I have this weekend is dedicated to writing and revising. I also have a baby shower to attend, plus work on my day job too....Hope it's a productive weekend for you!!

Hi Barb and Lynette!

I have something in the works that I'm way excited about. Hopefully I will be able to post good news here soon.

It sounds like a tough but wonderful weekend - if that makes any sense. I have a two-year-old. My writing life revolves around his sleeping schedules. I do most of my writing early in the morning. I get a little accomplished during nap time.

I'd love to see photos of your cottage. Have you ever posted any on this blog?

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Hi Julie,

I remember the days of writing around the kids schedules. Those were wonderful days too. I have posted pictures of my cottage on here before but will be happy to post them again soon.
