The Writer’s Life with Award-Winning Children’s Author, Renee Hand

I am pleased to introduce award-winning children’s author, Renee Hand as she discusses the ever changing schedule of an author.

Every morning I wake up early and start my day on the computer. For at least a few hours, while my children are sleeping, I am able to get a lot accomplished in my writing. I spend time creating my story, reading it, or revising it in some way. I spend time researching ideas that I have. I am always looking for interesting information I can incorporate into my stories. After that, my days are filled with homeschooling my children and taking care of anything else that needs to get done. Reading books to review, book promotion, work, school visits, and so on…Every day is different for me. Depending on how busy I am depends on how much I am able to write that day. Throughout the day I will check e-mails, work with my children on their writing, will take a half hour or so to work a little bit more on my writing. If I have time at night, I will also work on revising my work and editing it, reading it aloud and so on, but for the most part, my mornings are my time to create and the only time that I am not going half out of my mind.

Follow Day 3 of Renee's tour tomorrow at http://www.margotfinke.blogspot.com/.

  6. I can barely get up in the morning, so I'm always amazed when someone says they get up early to write.
