Mom's might find this of use - free, 40-page e-book: "The Power of Deliberate Thinking: 5 Strategies for Staying at the Writing Desk (Despite Your Self-Doubts)." Get it here: http:literaryliving.com. Enjoy and let me know what you think!

Anyone live in Denver? A mom from Denver won the Great Kayak Give Away, so I will be at the Bookery Nook in Denver Colorado on Sunday September 12th at 2pm doing a reading and signing of my teen adventure novel Runaway Storm. Would love to see anyone who lives in Denver. Will give a short Funshop on Character and conflict and would love to talk shop with writers/moms...and of course kids (my book is for 11 and up).

I'm new to this group and site...
I'm an art historian by training and have been writing about the maternal body in contemporary art. Just got a contract with Ashgate for a book, Reconciling Art and Mothering, so that's been my writing focus recently.
Anyway, I have a call for essays proposal that I've been spreading around, without a whole lot of luck recently. I'm wanting to do more of a commercial (i.e., not academic) book of stories, on comic adventures in breastfeeding. (And of course, I would share any advance money--motheringdotcom deleted my call for fear that I was trying to "steal" people's stories!) If you're interested in reading more, check out the call on my blog.
Glad to be here!

Hey y'all,
A late addition to the conversation re home-schooling:

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/22/t-magazine/22talk-jacobs-t.html?_r=1

about home-school coops. We did one when our kids were small and it worked out well. Kind of shares the work around.

Great essay, Beth :) And Jackie, thank you so much for sharing! My daughter is only in pre-school, but I can see the future in your post!

My blog post today is a wistful look at, "Back to school." I would appreciate your reading and comments.

A fellow mom/writer friend forwarded me this wonderful essay in Hip Mama about struggling to write with kids around: http://www.hipmama.com/node/44535

Hey writer mommies. Just want you to know that school is near if not upon us, and our writing lives are going to be redeemed as we knew them...so soak up some sun today and play with the babes. That's my goal. Of course I'm still in my pjs at 3:00 and haven't done squat with the kids all day...but I'm going to take my advice now, unplug, and be a mother! yrs. Laura
