zinemama, love the essay!
Mamas, would you consider making the thread a monthly thing?
Like a new one each month?
I've been out of touch with the writer mamas...not because I'm not writing, but because I have only been writing for "the man" for the past several months. I went back to work in January, and it was supposed to be just 10 or so hours a week, but things sort of exploded, and I'm up to something between 25 and 30 months. And no childcare, because the plan was to be home with my kids this summer. Plus, it's now the busiest season on the farm. Ugh.
So last week I restarted my personal creative project again. I just have to keep going back. It's not a question of identity as a writer for me; I make a living writing. But I'm so frustrated trying to get this story down. At least I am still trying, right?
