My drug of choice is writing––writing, art, reading, inspiration, books, creativity, process, craft, blogging, grammar, linguistics, and did I mention writing?

Updated Update Schedule

This has gone "live" on my update schedule page, and is probably what you all can expect from me...at least for the next few months.  My "learning moment' for this semester has been to either sign up to teach day classes or night classes, but that doing both kind of disrupts my daily routine and sleep patterns in a way that isn't good for my writing.

The bad news is that my "15 Things Not to Do to Writers" article won't be done until tomorrow.  The good news is that is because it's fleshing out pretty well to be one of the better articles I've written (I think--I'm really a terrible judge of these things).


Mon- Some kind of personal update on the goings on in my life--as boring as they may be.  Writing About Writing observes bank holidays and takes every three day weekend it possibly can.  Mostly because I'm lazy, but also I don't want to pay the staff overtime.
Tues- Supportive and Unsupportive Girlfriend both claim Tuesdays as date day (often tag teaming me all day long--and not in the good way).  If I have a guest blogger to present (and I LOVE guest bloggers) I'll post them on Tuesday.  Or if I'm running a poll, I may try to encourage people to get voting.  Otherwise I have a Mai Tai and put my feet up on a sun-kissed beach, which might look to the layman like getting cat litter from Costco, but don't be fooled.  Oh no.  Don't. Be. Fooled.
Wed- The "main" article of the week will land on Wednesdays (usually).  I alternate between the illustrious guest bloggers we have on staff here at W.A.W. and my own offerings.
Thurs- Shorter posts find their home on Thursdays--or the main post that should have come in on Wednesday might end up here since it's my first day of the week off from teaching.   A regular Thursday update might just be a link with commentary, a poll or call to vote in a poll, a writing prompt, or a quick update on what's happening around the W.A.W. compound.
Friday- On Fridays I answer questions you send in for The Mailbox.  You too can have your very own question answered by a not-even-slightly famous writer.  Just send your questions to chris.brecheen@gmail.com with the subject line "W.A.W. Mailbox."  I will also respond to comments--even anonymous ones from time to time.
Saturdays-  I usually take weekends off.  But I might find an image or a link It may be a link with commentary or a quick observation.  It kind of depends on how motivated I'm feeling, so if you're really excited about seeing something on the weekend, writing an e-mail on Thursday about how much you love W.A.W. would work.  A groupie threesome on Friday night would work even better.  Just sayin...
Unless there's been a threesome.
I really can't underscore enough how well that would work.
Sundays- I really, honestly try to take Sunday's off.  Or Saturdays.  Or at least one day.  Sometimes. The problem is that content means traffic, so a day where I don't do anything sees half or less the traffic of a day where I post anything--even if it's just five links with a sentence each of commentary on them.  Even the cheesiest entry represents at least 200-300 page views, and as small as my number are right now, that can make a big difference.  So if you're ever wondering why I seem to complain about never getting a day off, it's because I'm an unmitigated pageview whore.
