27 books, 1 soap and a flowercrown in decline. The books include Sense & Sensibility, Pride & Prejudice, plus the Magic series by Stacia Kane, and a bunch of awesome-looking books I picked up at the library sale.
Please just give me five minutes to get something down (I often write very short notes while I’m at work) . This turns into a couple of hours when the kids are in bed and my husband gives up on us watching a show together. I do my best writing at night and my best yet is when I got up at 2am last year because I couldnt stop thinking about my characters. I wrote 4k words that time.
Maren Bradley Anderson inspired me enormously to finish this book. She’s a local author, college professor, wife and mother. Her story is that she did NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) when she was also hosting Thanksgiving and had a stomach bug whilst still working and parenting. At the time, I only had one of those and it wasn’t the stomach bug, so it was time for my excuses to be done.
