まだヌスバウムの記事を読んでいる。どうやってヌスバウムがあれほど著作が書けるのかという質問に対する答え。この前にテレビドラマも見ていると答えている。子育てしていた頃の1日を教えてほしいところ。

I have rules: I do nothing but write in July and August, and every morning when I wake up, I love to read my email and reject lots of invitations before I get up! It makes me feel free. The only times I travel internationally are June 15 to 30 and December 5 to 20. And within the US about one out-of-town lecture or conference a month, never canceling classes.

So I get up around 6:30 AM, have coffee, juice, and an energy bar, do some type of cardio from 8 to 9 (usually running, on the gym-quality treadmill in my home), and then some situps or arm weights, and twice a week in the late afternoon I go downtown to my gym to do weight machines. Then at 9:15 or so I shower, dress, and practice singing until around 10:15. Then I go to the office. After that it all depends what and when I’m teaching, whether I have taught that thing before, whether we’re interviewing job candidates or I’m on a tenure committee or whatever. Basically, I write whenever I don’t have something else to do. I love writing and get to it eagerly whenever time permits. But in the evening I just read stuff, and don’t typically write. So that’s the plan.
