Anyone read the book Writer Mama? I just picked it up a few days ago and it is awesome. It has lots of advice on being a mom and having a writing career. Really great for beginners like myself, it will definitely be on my reference shelf...I can't put it down. Lots of great resources too.

I have not heard of this book and it sounds like just the trick for me right now!
Working at home with an intention to write and three little beautiful creatures off for Summer who want Mama time can be hard. I am so glad there's a resource. That's why I love this site. Thanks for posting! Sounds like we might have a group forming on this thread who want to share the process of this book.
Hmmmm....

Hmf. Now I gotta check the Library and bookstores :}

Wow! I JUST now ordered it from Amazon and am anxiously awaiting it's arrival! I will definitely post here when it arrives and I have had a chance to work on some exercises - maybe we can start a writer's mama group here for motivation,

Thank you,thank you, OP! I bought this book, and am so glad I did. I signed up to take her class this month as well. She has another one she's running in October, I think. This is the first week, and it's really enjoyable.
