I have an agent and we seem to get close to selling it, but then editors find some objection so it doesn't get picked up. I'm trying to stay optimistic and thick-skinned, as you must in the world of publishing.
I've not been doing much work on the memoir lately, but I have been trying to keep my writing muscle flexed by writing in my blog (linked to my name in my sig below), mainly essays and short musings about motherhood from a Buddhist perspective. I promised myself I'd write a little every day, but I am falling short of that goal. I'd like to be more disciplined. I know from all the writing books I've read that the way to do it is to do it!
I also enjoy writing poetry. I wrote my first poem since Sami was born, and will post it in the WIP...
Looking forward to getting more active in this forum. I've really enjoyed the writing I've read here!
