Here is what a typical day was like for me when I was a literary agent:
8:00: arrive at work
8:00 – 11:45: answer e-mails, call editors
11:45 – 1:30: lunch with an editor
1:30 – 3:00: answer e-mails
3:00 – 4:00: write detailed comments on client’s proposal
4:00 – 5:10: answer e-mails
5:10: leave for home
6:00: eat dinner, watch some news
6:15: start reading manuscripts
7:09: realize that I haven’t had time to blog
7:12 – ???: read until I can’t read anymore!
