Like you, I have three other creatures (4 when the hubby gets home) that demand so much of my time that it's hard to hide away long enough to type out a sentence. Until bedtime (ah, beauty of a quiet house). For example, while writing this comment, my son came up and slammed my laptop shut twice...grrrrrr!

I have an unwritten rule that after 7:00 PM, I retire to my desk where *NO ONE* can bother me while I write. I'll give you three guesses as to how that usually works out, and the first two don't count.


Fun to meet the newest member of your household. Pretty Kitty with a beautiful name. Like you, my children have gotten older and what they need from me on a daily basis has changed. I'm raising some talented and creative children as well. My youngest is drawing cartoons, a la "Wimpy Kid" and my oldest is writing a chapter book in his spare time that I've been commissioned to do the illustrations for. They are also keeping me accountable as I tentatively say aloud, "maybe I'm a writer at heart" by asking me, "Mom, Have you ever gotten anything published?" They sure don't pull any punches and I wouldn't want it any other way. Here's a toast to the next generation and our legacies in the best thing we've ever created - our children. Cheers!


Cats, kids, husband...all of them keep me from writing. I can totally relate to this! I like to wake up very early (usually around 4am) to have some peace and quiet...except for the occasional cat in my lap, but that's ok.
