Writing is a lonely job. –Stephen King
I haven’t written much about my book manuscript, but it is due to the publisher April 1st. No April Fool’s joke. It really is due then. I am fascinated with the process. I am burdened with my time line.
Writing in the midst of motherhood has created a Jekyll and Hyde effect on me. I want to do both things well. But, they are completely different personalities. One is active, involved, constant, on-the-go and noisy. The other is introspective, collected, still; filled with fluctuating periods of inspiration and broken moments of reflection.
As is good with all split-personalities, they do tend to compliment as well as interchange with one another in an odd sort of way. Mother. Writer. Both are me.
