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!

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...

Hi All, it's been a while, my novel The Language of Trees was released last month. Anyway, wanted to point you to my new blog post called "Letter to My Daughter", based on Maya Angelou's piece. You can find it on my shewrites page under blogs. Let me know what you think.

Chandra, you are a brave woman! My neighbor homeschools her three boys and I don't know how she does it. I just don't have that kind of patience. I think, really, that I'm just too selfish. I want "me" time!

Jackie, I just read your blog. It is beautiful and so are you. I am so very sorry for your loss. I can't even possibly begin to imagine.

Wow, Jackie. I just found your blog. My oldest son's birthday happens to be today. It sounds like your Jordan touched many people in such a short amount of time. I admire you for celebrating his life!
