I know you mean well, Alle, but please don't spam advertisements for your blog posts on the group walls. That is not what the group walls are for, and it sends spam emails to EVERYONE who is a member of the group (so I got 7 different emails from you this morning). If you want to advertise your blog, please use the Wordpress Bloggers group discussion dedicated to "What did you blog about today?"
Hi Alle, The flower symbolism I'm referring to in that title is actually more in the Georgia O'Keefe sense of symbolism. :) But hey, my first novel is out now! Check it out. http://riverpoetsjournal.com/Lilly-Press-NewBooks.html I really do hope to get to Seattle at some point. We'll have to sell a bunch of books here first though.

I'm making it into 100% fiction. The publisher wanted me to write it more like a memoir and I didn't want that. Thank you for the advice

Last week? Were you in DC last week? It was like Death Valley with steam last week. The lettuce in my refrigerator wilted last week. My brother in FL was complaining about 90 degrees and I was outside with my shoes blistering last week.
Welcome to the south!
"Welcome, V! Good for you for taking the time for yourself to do something you love. It makes you a better mom! I got back into writing the same way, one nap time at a time. I look forward to hearing about your progress!"
"I agree with Niki that combining being a stay at home mom with writing can provide you with a good routine. It worked that way for me when I was working on a first novel (still unpublished, but I do have a second one out there published…"
