Got a teaser for you today of a post I’ve got on Spencer Ellsworth’s The Writing Parenting Lifestyle blog:
So I’m a writer and a mom. (Of five.) (Yes, five. That’s my son in the picture).
Parenting and writing isn’t a job, it’s a lifestyle, like those three percent body fat people.
Most of the time I’m not super-momming it,“doing it all.” I mostly fall into writing the way other people fall into overeating. Or narcoleptics who wake up before they know they’re asleep. What, did I sit down at the computer again? Wait, did my 4yo just ask if he could use a steak knife to open the battery pack of his Ninja Turtle walkie-talkie? Holy crap, did I just say yes?!
