The actual topic this week from Long and Short Reviews was "Share your morning or bedtime routine", but my bedtime routine is boring, so I decided to stick to the morning.
I am weird, apparently, in that I get up two hours before I'm due to log in to work from home. I know many would say it would be great to just jump out of bed five minutes before work started, but I'm not built that way - I like to have a relaxing morning before I start work. I don't like to be rushing around getting ready.
So after getting washed and dressed, I make breakfast, feed the cats, and then get online for an hour. I check my email, check Facebook, do any promo I may need to do, and get a small amount of writing done. I also waste a bit of time on the SongPop app, which for some reason I have never grown out of.
And then it's usually time to log in to work, and I won't get chance to write, surf or anything else until lunch.
Well, it works for me. I used to save getting dressed until I'd finished eating and messing around online, but I find I can't write in a dressing gown. My entire writer's routine consists of putting clothes on.
So what's your morning or bedtime routine?
