After giving me two very nice books on European martial arts, Big Ron inquired as to how I might have time to read them.
Well, Ron, this is how it currently breaks down.
I write all my non-fiction and some of the fiction in my head while I walk, wait for the bus, work at my 20-hour grunt job, shower, exercise between writing articles as I relieve my hip from the strain of sitting, etc.
I normally read 1 hour per day from books at about 60 pages an hour.
When my sitting muscles are shot I lay down and read for a couple hours, probably twice per week. So I'm only reading offline 8-10 hours per week.
Online reading, posting guest articles, answering e-mails and approving and answering comments takes 3 hours per day.
Compiling, formatting, editing, proofing and publishing one book per week takes 8 hours.
I spend between 2-12 hours per day writing my original content. In most cases I'm either answering questions like this which just spills out, typing what I have written in my head, or just writing fiction, which just flows.
I view and listen to podcasts and videos while writing, so that is not counted separately.
I currently spend between 2-6 hours interviewing and dictating. That's a high so let's leave it at 2 hours.
Reading 8-10 hours
Site editing 20 hours
Dictating/Interviewing: 2 hours
Publishing 8 hours
Writing 35 hours
Total writing/site work: 70-75 hours
Total grunt work: 14-20 hours
Coaching/training: 4 hours
Fighting Smart: Boxing, Agonistics & Survival
