I hope this post gets a few comments – not because it’s controversial or amazing, but because I’d love to hear what you lot do all day (yeah I’m nosy). Once you’ve had a read of what I get up to, I encourage you to leave a comment about yours. You could even do your own day-in-the-life blog – if you do please tag me!
Here’s a typical Wordlander day
I wake up at six or as I like to call it too-flipping-early. If I’m working from home, I get a little lie in till half-six – woo! The usual shower, breakfast, and getting ready gubbins occur and then, if I’m going into the office, I get the train in. I try to do some blogging or catch up on social media on the way (if I can find a seat – yay public transport).
The day job
As a Senior Content Editor, my day is pretty varied. I have meetings and daily stand-ups, review work by other editors, do research, testing and analysis. Sometimes I even get to write. We often get urgent work we have to get out the same day (many things are classified “urgent”).
Lunch is usually at 12:30, but if a meeting crops up (and boy do they) I shuffle it around – but I always try and have it. I get away from the desk by going for a walk either to town or around a nearby park. At home, I’ll go for a walk around the village or do housework – oh the glamour.
Back home – and on to the gym (ugh)
I finish around half four, and it’s back on the train to squeeze in some writing again. Then it’s on to the gym. I’m not, and I can’t stress this enough, a gym bunny. But my sportier other half encouraged me to get into all this fitness malarky. And if I go I can reward myself with a cookie…ah I mean wine…I mean a protein shake. Yep. *shifty eyes*
Time to write
After dinner, I can really focus on writing – or get distracted by Twitter. I’ll work my blog post, my WIP, or something completely unconnected to either. On less “write-y” days, I do admin tasks like filling up my Buffer, or managing my social media channels (this makes me sound way more professional than I am). I work till I run out of steam, or then watch TV or read till bed.
So that’s me! Not that exciting I’ll grant you and weekends are different obviously. If you want to let me know how your day goes in the comments.
