A day in the life of Brittney Morris

What’s it like to be me for a day? Depends entirely on when you ask.

When I’m drafting, I spend 12+ hours per day in the writing chair. But in those 6 month gaps between drafts, I travel, read, cook, do jigsaw puzzles, watch YouTube, and (recently) crochet! I really value my sleep, so I usually wake up at around 10am (I go to bed around 11pm). I start with coffee and a light breakfast, unless it’s the weekend, which is when my partner and I make pancakes, bacon, and eggs (yum)! 🥞

Most of y’all know how much I LOVE video games. I spend most of my day watching video game commentators (my favorite is Jacksepticeye) play games that are either 1. Too scary to actually play (Resident Evil, anyone?), 2. On consoles I don’t own, or 3. Not released to the public yet. 🎮

I try to stay active with yoga, spin, and personal annual challenges (this year I’m aiming for the splits, a handstand, and splits IN a handstand. Pour one out for me.) My husband and I LOVE. FOOD. Most of our vacations involve trying delicious things from around the world. Here’s a picture of us at Max Brenner’s Chocolate by the Bald Man in Boston. Our next trip will probably be Japan, since I’m (slowly) learning Japanese!

‪Anyway, that’s a day in my life. Thanks for sharing it with me! ❤️
