Mother and Writer

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.
