I know weird question. I will give you an example of my schedule to get this started. I know that there are a lot out there like me that are on a constant go..go...go. My day begins at 2 pm, why 2 pm, I work at home from 9 pm to 5 am. I am up and ready to go by 2:30 after cursing the sun for actually being up. hehe, I am a night person. From 2 pm to about 7 or 8 I am either working on stories for my editors, the guy I am writing songs for now, or studies for school. Dinner comes around 8 pm then it is off to the phones for work from 9 pm to 5 am, during this time I multi-task between here and things I am working on. I also have 3 novels going on at this time. One is on its 3rd rewrite before I send it to my proofer's for final examination(I have more than one.), my adult book, and the 9-11 survivor stories. When I am finally done at 5 am, depending on if I have to go to town to meet people for business, I may be to bed by 10 am, depends. I sometimes pull the 48 to 72 hour days. I am fortunate enough to be able to survive on 4 hours of sleep, I don't recommend it for anyone if they don't have to do it. I also now am working with the Mayor in Newark NJ,to help with his blog and am working on getting a business that will be funded by the town, federal, and state grants for a cafe across the street from the courthouse in Newark. So my life just got a bit busier. I do take one day with my daughter and we wander around Manhattan and spend our time together because it is that important to me. Next week we are off to the Met, new exhibits are up. I think a lot of NYers live life as I do, our pace is that of non stop go. Such is life in the big city. What is your day like?

I am home all day and housebound, I do not get out much, and so much schedule is very much of my own making, there was one time in my life that I had to plan for every precious minute of the day, now I have all the time in the world to do whatever I want.

Being a freelancer I do get to work at home, I just travel about the city when I have to go out and get that story. I schedule myself pretty tight. Ainge
