Now I've got a bit of de-cluttering, dishes, kids at the playground (at the moment) out of the way. And I'm sitting on this bench in the sun. I'm in my special place in "my" space and time wih my Tablet and bluetooth keyboard. Sounds ethereal for a busy witing mom. I think our family's day-to-day experiences aren't obstacles to the things I enjoy doing most, which is, writing. Though, often, it feels that way. Life is too short. Life is too wonderful to shut my childen and happiness out my writing life. They'll be my characters, monsters and heroes in my stories.
