Michelle: Question #3: Your author/speaker platform in amazing. I know you spoke at SCBWI Nationals in New York about this very subject. Tell us what a week-in-the-life of Darcy Pattison looks like?
Darcy: A week in my life is so varied that there’s no normal. I own and write for many blogs, manage others who write for my blogs, write freelance articles, write speeches, visit schools, work on and deliver professional development sessions, promote my books and others’ books, and write fiction. I have a yellow, legal-sized pad that has these categories: Speaking, Writing, Blog, PR, Friends, Publishing, Other. Each week, I jot down what is due that week and hope that by the end of the week, everything is done. More often than not, several entries get pulled over to the next week. And yes, I schedule Friends–otherwise, the week would get overwhelmed with the “Tyranny of the Urgent” and the most important Friends would get lost.
