I’m a full-time Mom of four with big dreams… Dreams of getting my first novel published, aspirations to blog twice a week, and hopes of also getting through all the meals, dishes, laundry, errands, after-school activities and messes, plus yoga, HIIT workouts, homework time, and bedtime stories without breaking a sweat. Did I mention that I also have a spazzed out lab mix pup who needs my constant love and attention?
Most days are a struggle, and some days I hit it out of the park. I have to remind myself not to judge my progress based on one measly day, or even a week, but over the long term. This time last year, I was still finishing my work-in-progress SONG OF A FIREBIRD. Now, I am ready to query. That’s progress, although it did take me a while. I could be much more productive with child care help, but I digress.
Now that February is wrapping up, I like to take a look back at the winter madness and remind myself of how much I did do, even though it often feels like I am stuck in slow motion. There were trips and parties, and of course, the crazy Christmas holiday, plus time with the kids at home and out in nature. Here are some favorites:
It’s been a busy, but fun, winter. There are many more moments that didn’t make it into the blog and I’m thankful for all of them. Here’s to a happy and productive spring!
I'm an aspiring author seeking representation for my 88,000 word upper YA historical romance SONG OF A FIREBIRD, a story about a 15-year old late-blooming wallflower who falls for her bully's boyfriend and gets burned. But when this broken, little bird rises from the ashes of humiliation, she's singing a brand new track.
