Eggs in a basket

Thursday, March 17th, 2005

This morning, like every morning, I thought about what I planned on writing as I went about my daily business. Bored and unable to think of anything that didn’t have to do with poop, I packed up the baby and headed out.
We get about two stoplights away when it hit me: I will write about […]

Quick Class Participation Time, Query Letter Style

Tuesday, February 15th, 2005

Do you think it is “not funny” to include the fact that sometimes a mom wants to sneak a little drinky in (while the baby is asleep) in letters to literary agents?
It seems as if some people (read: Not parents) think that I’m telling everyone to be an alcoholic. Or then again, maybe I’m just […]

Bitter Sweet Changes

Monday, February 14th, 2005

It turns out that Friday was the last morning that I would get to sleep in with the baby laying next to me. Now, she never laid there peacefully, instead choosing to grab my hair and claw my face until I would get out of bed and bring her into the toy jungle that is […]

The Bitter Taste of Lack of Success

Wednesday, January 26th, 2005

I have several “query letters” to literary agencies sitting next to me. For those of you who don’t follow my every thought and move like US Weekly gives to Paris Hilton, I wrote a book. Finished it back in 2003. 2003, people.

A new post up at my Other Site. Hint hint: It is about my favorite person.

Just so you know…

Monday, August 30th, 2004

In case you haven’t wasted enough time here already, or if you find my sometimes painfully short posts to be detrimental to your health, there is now another option for you.

Nouvel, my “other” blog for longer works of writing is now up. Thanks to Linda at Auterrific for nominating me.
This blog will contain many […]

We do not choose them as they choose us

Monday, August 30th, 2004

I would sit there, as a teenager, pen in hand and draw pictures of my high school friends, depicting them as I imagined they would be as adults. Acting as Cinderella at Walt Disney World. Professional runner. Incrediably rich doctor’s wife.

However, six years after we graduated from high school and went our respective ways, I […]
