WHAT TIME DO YOU WAKE UP? Whenever I feel rested. 9, if I can pull it off. The earlier I get up the better my day- but I don’t like going to bed or getting out of bed, so it’s a problem. WHAT DO YOU HAVE FOR BREAKFAST? Coffee, and sometimes, lately: a grapefruit. It’s a phase. I have four boxes of healthful cereal in the cupboard I never feel up to opening. I never eat brunch. It ruins the day. ONE WORD THAT DESCRIBES YOUR MOOD IN THE MORNING? Guilty. WHAT GETS YOUR JUICES FLOWING? Large pieces of paper. A neat room with a desk and a door. Darkness and a deadline.
