Hi mamas!

I'm Kim (aka Kimbo), momma to 3 kiddos and one on the way. We live on a small plot of land in KY where I dream of being surrounded by gardens and wild things. We already have a lot of wild things -- it is the garden that gets me.

Hmmm...what else. I guess y'all know I'm into writing b/c I'm here in this particular forum. Many years ago I was published in several magazines and had a thriving 'zine called "Commie Mommie." Because baby #3 was on the way, I sort of gave up writing in a small fit of depression. Now that I'm carrying baby #4, my muse is constantly stirring.

How to you get back in the game after a long hiatus? Anyone else deal with this? Many of my contacts are either out of business or don't work for that magazine/journal anymore.

Thanks so much in advance. I'm off to read all the archives.

(p.s. I have an LJ account where I do a lot of writing if anyone is interested)

I'm also starting to get back into writing after a long time away. There's something about a new baby that's stirring, isn't there?

There's a thread here with some of us working on exercises from "Steering the Craft". I'm hoping to post my results from the first exercise today. It would be fun if you'd join us
