"What a fabulous post. Thanks from another mother writer, one with a 3 1/2 year-old and baby on the way. I've written of mothering, but mostly with humor--I've not yet touched the serious. It may be time to."

10 Things I'm Loving Doing in the Midst of Busy Life

Posted on September 11, 2012 at 2:06pm 0 Comments

1. Watching “Covert Affairs” on USA Network.

Piper Perabo (Coyote Ugly, Cheaper By the Dozen) as Annie Walker, a CIA operative with kick-ass shoes and a big, brave heart; Christopher Gorham (“Ugly Betty”) as her hot, sweet, and smart as heck colleague; exotic locations befitting the creators of the Bourne movies …. What’s not to like?

2. Reading every issue…

Hi Katherine,

Love the Tom Robbins quote on your blog! I saw your comment on Mother Writer and wanted to say welcome. I have three children under 12, a Husky, two house cats and the husband to round out the household. Busy writing life, isn't it, raising little people? Nice to connect.

Katharine, Welcome to the novelist group. If you haven’t done so already, you might introduce yourself by telling us what you’re working on in the “Show Me Your Novel and I’ll Show You Mine” discussion.

We do a live chat at 1 EST on the first Wednesdays of each month, with instructions on how to participate in the "Our Water Cooler" box near the top of the group page. And we save the wall for discussion, but welcome links to helpful blog posts on the “Links to Helpful Blog Posts for Writers” discussion thread and to published books in the “Our Published Novels” one.

I hope you’ll enjoy the group.

Hi Katie,

     Good to hear from you!  Yes, I'll be at the Berry College Conference. I'm reading fiction on Sunday morning, and I'm also going to be on a publishing panel on Saturday.  I was wondering whether any others in the Southern Writers group would be there.  I'll look forward to meeting you and hearing you read!

       All best,

Hi Katherine!

Welcome to the Southern Writers group. First, please visit our "Kitchen Sink" discussion to get into the swing of things. Also, be sure to introduce yourself on the "Roll Call" discussion, and then just jump in and do what you like. Start a discussion, ask questions, or just tell us what you've been up to. We're a casual, friendly bunch :)

Be sure to let us all know how you found out about our little group here on She Writes!

BTW, I see you're with Bell Bridge Books. I met Debra Dixon at a conference a few years ago. She's a nice lady. :)

The Way of Water or What to Do with My Anger

My anger seethes. In theory, I know it is not healthy, yet I seek out what produces it. It’s an addiction. My anger came to a peak after watching the movie “Welcome to Sarajevo.” Critics claimed it was not accurate and that there are better movies…See More
