Today I’m thrilled to welcome author Angela Marsons to the book review cafe. I’m a huge fan of this authors work, and her Kim Stone series, if you haven’t read them yet, and you’re a fan of crime thrillers then you are missing out on one of the best crime series on the market. I really am nosy and love learning more about authors and what they get up to in their “typical” day.
A day with author Angela Marsons
I love to get up early and write when it feels as though the world is still asleep. There is an intimacy that connects to my creative brain. As I hand write the first draft of all my books I can normally achieve around 2-3 thousand words before my fingers cry out for mercy. Once I’ve achieved my target I’ll catch up with the rest of the world and answer my emails.
Around lunchtime I’ll check in on social media which is an absolute treat for me as I don’t take any electronic device into my writing room. I really look forward to seeing what’s going on as I am very nosey and hate to think I’ve missed anything. After lunch I might continue with emails or admin before forcing myself to complete house chores and tasks although I must be honest and say that my partner Julie is an absolute gem and takes care of most things.
Once the admin is done I love to have a relaxing read and catch up with some of my favourite authors. Evening time I might watch something on the television – I am a total reality TV addict – or if my current WIP is burning in my head I’ll return to my writing room for a couple of hours to get the ideas down on paper. I have been known to write until 3 or 4am or later if I’m in the moment. I think my preference for writing early morning and late at night comes from writing around a full time job for so many years before I was lucky enough to be able to do what I love as my job.
