So, I was scrolling through some posts on my blog and found this one from the fall of 2007, when Ramona was five years old:
You know you're a writing mom when ...
... writing "when the kids don't need me" makes prime-writing-time fall between one and six a.m.
... you think of your computer as one your best friends (and yet you long to trade your best friend in for a newer, sleeker model.)
... coffee is your favorite food group.
... your kids regularly tell you, "Don't write that down!"
... your kids regularly tell you, "Mom! Write this down!"
... your five-year-old says, "Mommy, today I played my heart out. No ... I played my energy out. No ... 'played my heart out.' Yes. That sounds better. 'Today I played my heart out.' Yes. That's it."
A complete schedule of the day can be found here. I'll be delivering the keynote address at 11:30 a.m., and will present the writing session at 2:45 p.m.
I hope I see you there!
