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:

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:

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 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

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." :)
