Welcome back to the Blog Tour to celebrate the publication of The Collective. I am lucky today to have its author, R S Williams visiting to talk about her Typical Writing Day.

Without further ado, let me hand the blog over to Rhianne.

 A Typical Writing Day

As a writer, I dream of nothing more than creating stories in made up words and adventures I wish I could go on. My main goal with my writing is to just keep going no matter what happens BUT if I could take that full time, it would be amazing. Alas, I don’t live in a fantasy world and I must work at a day job. So, for all the other writers out there who want to know how I do it and not go insane. This post is for you.

5am: Usually involves an alarm and two kittens demanding attention. I then spend 20 minutes checking all my phone notifications, getting dressed for work. Once I get downstairs I then feed the cats and get my lunch ready for work.

6am: My designated writing hour! I do two 30 minute sprints / Pomodoro’s to get me into the writing mood. Sometimes I reach 700+ words sometimes I barely make my quota of 380. It all depends on the day.

7am: This is dependent on my shift. If I am on the early I will be leaving the house. For this post, I will use my late shift.  This leaves me with 45 minutes to eat breakfast, brush my teeth and sneak in some writing.

8am: I leave for work and it takes me between 20-40 minutes to get there.

9am-5:30pm: I will be working away at the day job. It’s not exactly the most exhilarating position but it pays my bills.

6-9pm: I will have gotten home, changed and showered. Feed the cats, give them some affection I’ll do a little bit of exercise and then get myself sorted for my evening work. I then either cook tea, or have extra time for writing and blogging. I set a goal for Blog work on Tuesdays and Book work on Thursday. Whatever extra I fit in is a bonus.

9pm: Will usually find me in bed with a good book and if I don’t fall asleep by 9:30pm I’ll go to sleep around 10pm.

There you have it. There’s a typical Monday-Friday for me. Weekends I try and be social, while still keeping my writing time in the mornings, but as my friends are late risers I get a few extra hours to work.

Thanks so much Rhianne. Hearing about a writer's day is actually my favourite part of having a blog. I am still not sure how you fit everything in! You can read my review of The Collective here.

                                                                    About the Author

Rhianne Williams, formally known as RS Williams, writes Fantasy, Adventure and Romance novels. As an avid reader Rhianne has always been in love with the written word and the emotions a good story can create.

Discovering she had a knack for creating stories as a teenager, she started work on her first story. However, at 16 the mundane adult world called her back to an admin job and Rhianne put writing on the back burner until she turned 20. Rediscovering her fascination with writing and creating Rhianne then threw herself back into her writing in 2014.

When she isn't catching plot bunnies, typing up her creations or writing on her blog, you'll find her in front of the television watching her favourite shows, spending time with her family and getting lost in others fictional worlds.
