So what's your day job?

After six weeks away from mine, I can hardly remember. And as of yet, I have not written another book on my sabbatical. I have worked on revisions, but not during the day as I'd planned. Still writing only in the evenings. To me, it just feels like the right time.

Do you have a particular time of day you like to write? I get 9:00 - 11:00 pm. The kids get to bed by 8. Talk with hubby. Check email. Check blogs. That brings me to 9. But then I can focus. Sometimes I spend the whole 2 hours. Sometimes less. Rarely more (except maybe during a first draft stage).

And when you don't write, do you have to do something else to pay the bills?
I design chips. Not potato chips. The kind that go into cell phones (smart phones they call them). I like referring to them as Smart Phones because ... well, it just makes me feel smart!
