Hal-low, Writer Mama!

The question I get asked second most besides, "Twins?" is actually about how I manage to have a freelance writing career along with caring full-time for my girls.

Sometimes I don't know the answer myself. Other times, it's easy for me to understand -- it's because I rarely take on too much than what I know I can handle.

That would NOT be the case right now.

So, I'm going to skip off into the sunset with sticky little girl fingers and a pile of writing assignments tucked neatly below my eyelids.

Not only have we listed our house back on the market (um, not one call, yet), but I'm juggling three other deadlines, taking a freelance pitch e-course and then, of all times, a good-paying assignment (= lots of work) landed in my inbox yesterday and I'm going to need to focus on harder for a week. (You know, and not worry about comments, not worry about responding to comments, not worry about not reading all of your blogs, and not worry about not having any comments, etc. It's true that this portion of blogging takes up more time than the actual writing the blog itself.) So, all work, including the fun, but not growing, Fun for Moms meme will be suspended on this blog for 7 days.

When $$$ calls I must answer and say Hal-low, which is how Jadyn and Liana say it even if IT is a pebble or a banana or a small block.

Hal-low, Money. Hal-low, Work.

I'll return next week with a must-read interview with one of the coolest bloggers in all of the blogoland: Rebecca Woolf from Girls Gone Child. If you're not a fan yet, you will be. I'll share my interview with her next week along with my review of her book, Rockabye. Stay tuned and have a wonderful week.

Thank you for visiting today.
