"I'm just at the point (my kids are 14, 12, 10, and 7 1/2) where I can write in the morning and they won't (usually) all wake up as soon as they sense that I have left my bed : ) Ah, the joys of attachment parenting + homeschooling : ) But…"

"I homeschool! My kids are 6, 4, and 2 and I don't really get any writing done. I try to do school during my youngest's naptime so I can't write then. They are all early risers - and I am not a morning person - so I just can't get…"

>A friend was over for tea, and told me about this *great* book she had just got from the library...yes, The Wednesday Sisters : ) Personally, it has inspired me, lifted me and carried me through a very busy period in my life and I think *every* woman and writer should own a copy.

Wendy, thank you - both for reading and for your lovely note!

I just took a look at your site, and really love the post on becoming more mindful, esp. "Practice Grace." Am taking that thought into my day, my week, and a new book. :-)

Stuck? Try freewriting. It works wonders.

Hi Wendy,
Just wanted to mention another group here at She Writes, called Spiritual and Inspirational Writers… might want to check it out.

Hello Wendy,
I think writing is one of the most gracious things one can do, from anywhere. Especially now that the internet opens us up to the world. It doesn't much matter to me if I'm in Vancouver or here. I used to live in Toronto and didn't do any writing there.
I love blogging, and I encourage you to just fit it in where and when you can. It's much more important to be there for your kids than it is to write at the moment. But, I also think it's important to have a creative out when you are at home being a mom… I wish I had recognized that years ago. So, your voice is developing… and the opportunities will present themselves as you go. Be encouraged that there is only one you, and only you can say what you can say. Glad to have 'met' you, both here and at my blog today. Hugs, Lesley-Anne

Oh, I just answered one question for myself… I popped over to your blog and found out that you live in Nelson. Very cool. I'm in Kelowna. I'd love to hear more about your writing when you have a chance.

Welcome to She Writes, Wendy. Lots of great conversation here. Consider jumping in by joining one of the groups, perhaps the fiction group or, if you write long fiction, the just-formed novel group, Novelists - Struggling or Not. I'm also a fiction writer (novelist, although I publish stories and essays too), so will look forward to chatting with you!
