I'm a writer, artist, former comedian, married, and mom to a 4 year old. My website is not up-to-date, but is www.planetelana.com. ElanaHalberstadt.com is not launched yet but is where I'm planning to have my writing stuff focused. I've neglected my writing life (except for part-time work writing) since my son was born. I've moved 4 times in the last 4 years. I'm still unpacking. And now, after much time away from self and writing, (I really can't take it anymore), I'm jumping back in. I've found much inspiration and information on SheWrites. Thank you!

"I bought a journal which was terrific in format. You didn't have to write every day ... could skip weeks ... and it asked you questions, such as "Did you call a friend today?" "What's the weather like?" You haven't…"
"I was a writer before I was a mother (before hs, actually), after I became a mother, and still working at it to this day. For a period, I was in a situation where I had to hide my writing, but I am free now. I used to write about the children when…"
