The early bird...ends up exhausted

Lately my day has gone something like this:

5am. Wake up. Write.
7am. Feed baby.
7.30am. Put baby back to bed and write.
8.30am Give baby breakfast, get ready and go to library.
9.30am-2pm. Write until library closes for lunch.
2-4pm. Have lunch. Play with baby. Wait for library to reopen.
3-8pm. Head back to library and write until it closes.
9pm. Have supper, fall into bed and sleep like the dead until 5am when it all starts again.

But now the book is in. So tomorrow my day is going to look like this:

7am. Wake up and feed baby.
7.30am. Put baby and myself back to bed.
8.30am. Give baby breakfast, get ready and... hmm. Shop? Sleep? Read? Or make a start on the next book...?

Shop! I vote for shop since you've already gotten ready otherwise just stay in those PJs and read! It's well deserved :)

MAN that's dedication! My baby is almost two and I HATE it when HE wakes me up at 5am!!! Enjoy whatever you decide to do :)

Lucy King said...

Haha. Not so much dedication as necessity ;) I think I might combine reminding the baby who his mother is and Xmas shopping.

(Rach, can't believe your little one is almost two!!)

I say spend the day in bed. Do absolutely nothing that isn't necessary. Eat, sleep, be merry. Practise for Christmas. Oh, and have lots of cuddles with your little boy because he won't stay little for long. It's shocking just who quickly they grow up.

Lucy King said...

Staying in bed all day sadly not an option thanks to building work going on in the flat above. They're drilling up the floor. Grrrr.

Ho hum. Lots of cuddles and coffees in town it is then :)

Arriving late but hope you enjoyed whatever you did. Give the wee one a cuddle from me.

So, book 3 has been written. When will it hit the shelves? I'm desperate for some new romance, I can't re-read your previous two books again (for the 10th time or so...)

Lucy King said...

Oh Esther, I'm so sorry. Would you believe it, I'm still working on Bk 3. It feels a bit never ending at the moment, but am hopefully nearly there :)

Esther said...

Oh well, I should be studying for end of term exams anyway ;)

Best of luck for revisions. If you made the hero extra gorgeous, maybe that could help :)

Merry christmas to you & your family!
