               A Day in the Life of Michelle Stimpson 

The funny thing about this article is that I’m sure my husband will want to read this. He knows I do stuff all day, but he really doesn’t know exactly what I do all day, and he sometimes wonders why I sometimes say, “I can’t pick up your cleaning until tomorrow.” But the truth is: Writers must protect their time. We have to be Time Lords if we actually want to get all this mysterious stuff done.
Here’s how my day usually goes:
8:30 – Still lying in bed, listen to someone preaching the Word
9:00 – Get up, put on some clothes and have something to eat (usually a breakfast bar) and some water. Maybe get on the treadmill. If not, go straight to the prayer closet.
9:15 – 10:30ish – Prayer closet: Pray, read the Bible, read a book that points me back to the Bible, journal, command my day with Scriptures. I may listen to music for some part of this time.
10:30 – 12:30ish – Handle business: Prioritize my list of things-to-do for the day, reply to email messages, check sales and ads, fax contracts, create/schedule social media, read writing articles/blogs, reply to text messages and voice mail, take the next step with a client (design a book cover, helping someone publish their book, etc.)
12:30 – Eat another bar & maybe a bite of something with some meat (LOL!)
12:45 – 2:30 – Write next chapter of work-in-progress
2:30 – Stop to eat another bar
3:45 – 4:30 Continue with the list of things-to-do (usually involves more marketing, making doctor’s appointments, running to post office, etc.). I usually run my errands around the city at this time because all the stay-at-home moms have to go pick up their kids at this time, the retirees are back at home getting ready to eat dinner, and everybody else is still at work. This leaves the aisles of Wal-Mart and Target clear for the work-from-home crew!
4:30 – Eat the last bar of the day
4:45 – 6:30 – Continue with whatever I didn’t complete on the list of things-to-do.
6:30 – Eat a for-real meal.
6:30 – 8:30 – Read, relax, spend time with the family, go to Bible study or other evening events.
Any time after 8:30, I could be talking on the phone with a friend or just watching a little TV. In a crunch, I might keep working until around 11:30 p.m. Just depends on how much I got done during the day.
Mind you, there are always phone calls coming in from my husband or other people. I have an epileptic dog in who might have to be tended to at any moment, and there’s a baby (my granddaughter) in the house. Any time she cries, I feel like I have to see if there’s anything I can do to help. Given the number of distractions available at my home, I sometimes go to a library or a trendy restaurant with Wi-Fi so that I can concentrate more, especially if I seem to be falling behind at home.
I am also a part-time educational consultant. I work outside of home once or twice a week. On those days, I’m usually up and out of the house by 7:30 a.m. When I come home from those days, I MIGHT get to handle some of my email business and such, but I don’t usually write because I’m too tired. If I come home from working some place else, if I get home early enough I’ll take a nap and then get up to write later. I try not to do that much because then I’m up all night writing, which means I won’t feel rested when I wake up the next morning at 8:30 (my body wakes up naturally around that time).

So, there you have it! This is what I do all day. Could somebody go tell my husband!
