Thanks so much for the kindness, Ladies :)
Anjali, What fine compliment!
Rebecca, I'd love to read your story. Sometimes we daydream about selling our house out in whoville and moving back to Madison and into a little flat. It would be weird to go back to renting, but freeing in some ways--color be damned.
Lori, Yay! My kids are not in preschool, but we just joined the Y. I'm trying to figure out how I can put them in Child Watch, go work out and sneak a tiny bit of writing time before picking them up again. Dang if they only had WiFi.

Beautiful blog post Victoria! It makes me want to snuggle up and write. My twins had their first day of preschool today and loved it! Even with the older kids home, I was able to reread what I'd written of novel #2, get back into the zone and write a little. Whoo-hoo!

I love your blog, Victoria. I just wrote one recently for another writer about my little corner in our apartment, replete with my daughter's drawings, a leaning desk, and a wall color I have no say in, except to say, "eww." :)

I'm not real big on promoting my blog here, but since Meg's writing prompt is so close to a post I did recently I thought I'd share. No pressure, it's just a thing.

Homeschool. Dang, I echo Lori.

I'm currently leading a workshop in the Afghan Women's Writing Project, and have just sent them this week's writing prompt - meant to jump-start a personal essay. Thought the Mom-Writers here might enjoy trying it out, too. Love to know what you think of it as an exercise, if you have time.

Beth -- I love that quote from Anne Lamott. That is what happened to me after I had my little Ava, though I wake up hoping for dishes instead of the corpse :) Anjali, thank you so much for supporting Erica. I still feel a little funny with the whole writer name, which now I know has nothing to do with publication, although I thought I would feel so much more official with a book coming out. All these years. a big fool. Writer it is then :)

great idea about dumping the rules about determining qualifications for being a writer....if you write, and you love it...then you are a writer.
I don't know where to share blogs...but I would love for you to read mine.

Thanks to everyone for the comments on the Motherlode piece and homeschooling.

Jackie, thank you for sharing your son with us all.

Beth--I love the Anne Lamott quote and had forgotten it. How true!
Comment by Beth Winegarner on August 21, 2010 at 4:11pm
Rebecca, Erica's post is great and reminds me of this quote from Anne Lamott, which only made sense once I had a baby: "“I used to not be able to work if there were dishes in the sink. Then I had a child and now I can work if there is a corpse in the sink."

The lovely and talented Erica Jamieson guest blogs on The Bird Sisters this week. Erica wrote an incredibly amazing essay for the Mother Writer contest a while back...
