About this blog and my writing:
When my boys (Justin & Brandon) were little I started writing stories for them and we acted them out. I shared some of those stories with many other children. Many of them "illustrated" some of the stories and characters. It was so much fun! I've also encouraged my sons and one of my step-daughters to write. When the boys were little and had their own stories to tell I wrote down the words. As they got older they wrote down their own stories and one of my step-daughters even turned them into plays. I've kept and treasured many of them that they did just for fun or in school (homeschool & public). Sometimes at family gatherings we read aloud some of these stories that they wrote and illustrated when they were little - now that they are young adults this is a lot of laughs.
Writing for me has been a great outlet as a mom. It was a way to record some of those family memories (I wrote poems about the boys at each age, and family poems). I wrote to encourage other moms (I used to put out a "Moment for Mom" newsletter). And I wrote to nurture myself (journaling, poetry, articles, and stories for grownups). Now that the kids have grown I finally have time to consider writing as a career and am working on a historical fiction novel. I blog all about it here on at Writing to Distraction! I'm so glad you've stopped by!
Don't forget to comment to be eligible for the prize!
Are you a writing mom? I'd love to hear about it. :)
