A Day in the Life of Kraig Dafoe:

     I’m not quite sure where the day begins and the night ends. I don’t succumb to the norm when it comes to keeping regular “business hours”.
     A typical day for me involves getting up at 6:45 to make sure my son gets ready for school. After he leaves for school I go back to bed for a while. When I get up around nine, I hit the shower and then it’s a little breakfast.
     After breakfast I get the computer warmed up and start checking email and reading a little of what passes for news these days. Once my head is clear and I’m feeling awake, I try to squeeze in some exercise. Then I’m off to the shower again. Now I’m feeling pretty good about starting my day, usually about noon.
     I sit back down to the computer, and now it becomes time to write. I don’t work on my current book every day, but I try to at least blog or work on my website. The days I do work on the book, I’ll spend about four hours writing and re-reading what I’ve wrote.
     Writing the book actually happens about once or twice a week, but the days I don’t write I will edit what I wrote and think about what I’m going to write the next time around. I think and plan about four days for every one that I write.
     After I work on my projects, it’s usually about time for my son to get home and then I become Mr. Mom. I have to make sure he does his homework; I have to make dinner, do the dishes, and whatever other chores that have piled up.
     Around seven o’clock my son and I get some T. V. time in and by ten I put him to bed for the night. If I were normal, I suppose this would be bedtime for me as well but I’m not. A little more T. V. and then it’s back to the computer. Another round of checking the email, reading the news, and writing maybe notes for my next session.
     Somewhere around one or two in the morning, I hit the showers for the third time and then it’s off to bed. About five hours later I do it all again.
     I stay busy as a single father but It seems to work for me. I seldom have the time to get depressed or get myself into trouble so I guess I wouldn’t change a thing at this point.
