Hello fellow writers and mothers. Joined She Writes a short time ago and am finally getting around to reading all the posts and discussions. There are so many interesting topics, I wish I could have more time to read and post more myself. I have a three year old and she's active as anything! I love it, certainly keeps me on my toes and in shape! Anyway, glad to be a part of the group.

Hello 503 Mother Writers!!!

Meg- I know what you mean. I have no child care this summer, either. But I sneak off for an hour and a half every morning, if only to remind myself what my characters were doing when I last had more free time! I'm so torn because I can't wait to get back to work, yet I spent a lot of time just hanging out with my 4yo today, and it was a blast.

Dang, I am getting nothing done this summer. Am I the only one? Feeling like my sons' summer vacation is mine too. Except I have writing to do!

Inspired by all the Mother Writer essays, I've written one of my own: Nicelle, I'll email you a copy for BK.

I live in NC, but may be moving to Atlanta at some point.

Unfortunately, I live 4 hours away from Atlanta in Savannah. Thanks for thinking of me though.

@Tanya - I belong to a writers group as well and have found it really beneficial. I try to write every morning before the children are up however now that I am pregnant with the 7th this isn't as easy as it used to be on some mornings. I suppose the one advantage I have is that although my husband is only home every 4-5 months I have so many children that they are usually off playing together which gives me some free time in the afternoon or early evenings. I confess though that I have skipped doing many chores because I had to write! Bad mommy lol

Hi Mandy,

Me too! Grad school, full-time work at home, 3 small kids. It's so hard to find time to write! When the kids go to bed and I could write, I start cleaning or reading or cleaning my office or learning German. I've started scheduling writing time. I'm lucky enough to have a great partner, so at least once a week I meet a fellow writer at a coffee shop and we write for 2 hours. For me, that's what works. I jot down my ideas, which I have a lot of but never time to develop. I actually do a lot of thought work when I'm not writing, though, and I think that helps for when I am able to sit down and write. I don't feel blocked, only in the sense that there's so much building up. Sorry, I'm babbling (and avoiding work). Have a great day, writer moms!
