Busy Bee – the writers life

You want to be a writer? This is what a writers life looks like – and this is without young kids.


Begin each day early. I like to social media in the mornings before the day job. Some people prefer to write a little.

Work on covers, banners, logo’s, or think of new ways to grab a readers attention.

Here is my new banner.

  1. Wow! You are busy. I’m inspired by this, as I also have a day job. It’s tough to get it all in. I write mostly at night. Can’t seem to get it together in the morning. I like the idea of leaving the morning open to checking media and emails. Do you completely edit your own stuff or do you use an editor for the final product? I have a novel soon to be completed and have wondered about the use of an editor. Thanks for this article.

  2. Hi Edmund, I’m happy you had a chance to read the blog 🙂

    I do find the social media stuff best in the mornings when I’m too foggy to gather thoughts to write. This really frees up my nights too.

    Unfortunately my grammar is the worst 😦 I do need to use editors otherwise no one would read my work. I have used Novel Nurse Editing – she was good – used her when she had a deal after nanowrimo.
    & luniakkpublications.com – Toneye is the best.

    But I’m always hunting deals, or bargaining with editors to give me a break if there is a service I can exchange.So sometimes I use randoms that I find on facebook and hope they’re good.

    Thanks again for reading and commenting.


    1. Thank you. It’s nothing to be ashamed of, King uses editors, as do most of the top authors out there. King even has an MFA degree and taught English for a time. I have the same problem, my grammars not always the best, especially on something as big as a novel. It can be, as you know, overwhelming. I’ll start to look into editors when I get the rewrite completed. If it’s okay, I may pick your brain when I get there. Thank you for the help.

  3. You are very busy Theresa! Now I understand why it can take several months to write a good story, and yours are excellent stories. Keep up the good work. You are more dedicated than I am.
