Though writing is my first love after God and family, I've decided to take a 9 month break from it because of my pregnancy! My brain cells seem to vanish and my creative juices all head toward my baby. Hehe. But if you look at the calender, time's nearing for Junior to be born (March 10th is his expected birthday). So fast, isn't it? Wait a cotton pickin' second, me thinketh that a hard day's sweat in the sun is where I've been this entire time, carrying a wee bairn ain't no picnic. Oh well.
I've been doing lots of sleeping and decluttering of the nest as well as making sure that my other chikadees don't starve--that's a double fulltime job with baby growing. Whew!
So how badly has my writing suffered? Well ...
Interesting enough, I've had many inspiring stories to write, but I've jotted them as mere summaries in my notebook for later times. During my first trimester, I co-authed a trilogy with my sweetie 16 year-old. Boy, she sure is a spitfire of a partner, one that makes dreams come true as well as stories! She rocks the ship with such fierce devotion as well as creativity. I had entered Eros into Amazon's Breakthrough Novel Contest, but didn't make it to the first round, but at least I polished it and uploaded the cover that took me over 3 hours to paint. Gorgeous, isn't it?
I be hopin' to join the crew to par with more published books at the wheel, but til then, mateys, baby comes first.
