As mother writers, do you ever worry about what your children will someday think reading it all back? Or (horrors!), that the shit will hit the fan if they ever find the unfinished drafts??? I do. So I played with erasure, the making of poetic artifacts from previously published material, to try and save my ass. Read it here:

Letting myself go ...

Sometimes I feel conflicted, right, leaving the kids behind, with others, to teach for example a night blogging class. Here's a post about the latest maelstrom of obstacles. Haiku too. Would love to hear from other moms trying to break out and how they deal with the guilt of mishaps. My Bicycle, My Chariot and The Angel Tree: Writing Despite Chaos

What's better for a parent than that time when you can finally leave your kids at home without a babysitter?

The last few weeks have been….interesting.  I had a big opportunity for me slip right through my fingers and losing that opportunity made me want to give up completely.  I literally felt like there was just no point to me being so determined to achieve something that didn’t appear to be working out as well as I feel it should be.  It certainly was in my own plans and delayed me in my current goals and projects and what I was trying to achieve.  I took some time and eventually came to my senses.  I am no now, nor have I ever been, a quitter.  I have worked hard to come this far and even though I don’t feel like I have come as far as I should have by now, it certainly is not where I started off at.  There are some habits that I am working on changing and as I am altering those habits I am starting to feel my mind racing with ideas again. 

So please show your support and check out my latest blog posts on my Write 2 Be blog and let me know what you think.  Also please go and check out the latest issue of Write 2 Be Magazine and like the Write 2 Be Magazine fan page for updates on what’s coming soon for the Magazine and how you can become a part of the magazine!

Tania, so lovely to hear from you - and wished you lived here still! Thanks for your kind words about the webinar. This workshop is building from that - taking the webinar off the page, so to speak! Hope our paths cross again here - or elsewhere - soon.

Workshop sounds great Deborah! Wish I could come! Lived in Illinois as a kid for 6 years. Enjoy! I loved your webinar on thought leadership--so I'm sure it will be an amazing workshop.

Hey Mama Writers! I'm leading a 1-day, in person workshop on thought leadership and platform building for writers at Ragdale (a writers residency on the prairie, in Lake Forest, IL) and it'll be a fun retreat, if anyone living nearby can get away!

A FB event page with more info is here:

And feel free to drop me a line if any questions - would love to work with -- and hang out with -- She Writers there.

What puts the bounce in your step and the flutter in the pit of your stomach, beside a kiss, of course?

"Hi Lorraine, That's good feedback. It's tricky because some books have such sexual covers and others are understated. It's interesting that readers of a certain taste may be drawn to one or the other... which means they may or may…"
