Writing Mommy Realities

If you write from home and parent your kids at the same time, you will have days like this:

1. The toddler is screaming for a drink while you are on the phone with an editor. Thankfully, the editor will say she understands because she is all about family.

2. You will spill coffee on drafts of articles.

3. You will be able to work for 5 minutes at a stretch before one of your kids needs or wants something.

4. You will turn from your desk to see a torn-apart house, and won’t care as long as you got some quality writing in.

Completely in sync with you on the destroyed home part. Good writing gives me the burst needed to restore it anyway, so that's a wash, right?
