A Day in the Life of Sandhya Menon:
8 AM: Awake. Puppy’s staring at me. Better let him out of kennel before Puppy Dog Eyes slay me to ribbons.
9 AM: Ivories have been brushed. Tea and/or coffee has been made. PJs have been traded for comfy jeans.
9:30 AM: Stare at Twitter. Write something I feel is especially pithy. Right before I hit send, rearrange commas and other punctuation.
9:31 AM: Crippling insecurity about my pithy tweet hits. WHY IS NO ONE RESPONDING?
9:32 AM: Open writing document to stop obsessing about my tweet.
9:33 AM: Peek at Twitter. Oh, good. People get it! They’re responding! No. Must turn off. Go back to work.
10:45 AM: This scene. It wants me to die. It hates me. My characters hate me. They’re all plotting behind my back.
11:15 AM: Is it lunch time yet? Eh, why not?
1 PM: Watched wayyyy too much Supernatural while eating lunch. Need to get back to work.
1:25 PM: Well, that went by fast. I’m done for the day! Huzzah!
2 PM: TWITTER.
3 PM: INSTAGRAM.
4 PM: TWINSTAGRAM. ALL THE SOCIAL MEDIA. I LOVE IT. I WANT TO DO THIS FOR MY JOB.
5 PM: Oh, god. The trolls. Why am I on social media? Why did I read the comments?
6 PM: Shutting off the computer. That’s it. I’m done. Time to go be a human now.
8 PM: Twitter on my phone is not the same as Twitter on my computer!
9 PM: One more email…
10 PM: Supernatural!
11 PM: Lights out. Hey, I actually had a weirdly productive day. (Says every writer everywhere every night.)
BONUS: Here are some pictures of my work space!
Ollie, my puppy. He’s very distracting…
