The time has come to start writing again. I just had child number three back in February this year. I had of course put my writing on hold during the last two months of pregnancy and now it is time to get back into the swing of things three months later. I’m hoping this blog will help me do just that.
One of the things you will hear repeatedly in the writing world is, “Write everyday.” As wonderful as this thought is, sometimes-writing everyday just doesn’t happen if you’re a Writing Mama like me with a fourteen year old son, five year old daughter, and new baby girl.
Between spending time with my husband, three children, our two pets, and cleaning the house . . . I sometimes wonder how I find the time to write at all. Not to mention maintaining my editing business and company Stories for Children Publishing, LLC. However, somehow I seem to fit it all in each day, week, month, and year. Of course, sometimes I find I do not get as much sleep as I need because of it all. But what is a writer to do if they are a mom, too?
My hope with this blog is to share with you all how I seem to manage (if you can call it managing) everything in my life. I won’t lie to you, I’m sure there will be good days and bad days, rejections and contracts to sign, school visits, book signings, works-in-progress, crazy stories about my children, and most importantly lots of do’s and don’ts.
So come follow me, my crazy life, and learn what it is like to be a Writing Mama!
