“Do you have a writing process that helps you juggle your writer/mother roles?”

I pay someone to watch my children. If I do not then sit down and write, I imagine throwing fifty bucks out a window.

Whether or not you have time to write, you can have in mind that slotting a time to write consistently—once a day, once a week, whatever you can manage—is as crucial as anything else in your life. It is a matter of patience, scheduling, prioritizing, and funding.

For writers who want to publish, that is a different matter entirely.

I am a writer. I write to explore childhood: literary essays and short fiction, journalism, and three haiku. My published work expresses my belief that everything which did or did not happen to me as a child is manifesting in everything that is or is not happening to me today. More importantly, it is also manifesting for my children. I believe funny is the new navel-gazing, and that the best funny keeps a penny's worth of serious in an accessible pocket. Little-known fact: I have a completed novel decorating the inside of a desk drawer. Perhaps it is not funny enough.
