HELP!!!! How do #authors with kids EVER write ANYTHING?

After reading  Helen Treharne’s <i>cri de coeur</i> on trying to write with an infant son…

I should count myself lucky that I’m in the ‘can’t happen’ category so far as having my own kids go… However, with an ailing mum/great grandma, I’m now the ‘de facto’ Head of the Clan material and I guess things are going to get bumpy now with the 2nd generation at prime ‘sprogging up’ age! Will be bending all your ears very soon I suspect!

  1. I had six kids and didn’t write much until they were in their teens. Since I write funny, sometimes sad slice of life stories about them, and now my grand kids, there is no end to the fodder they provide for my short stories. In fact my next book is a collection of them. In retrospect they were a lot funnier, cuter and winsome than in real time. 🙂

    • Time is a great softener isn’t it! 😉 I’ve read Whippoorwill and was in about equal fits of laughter and tears for most of it, Micki – kids really are a blessing, just not all the time at the ‘sticky’ end! 😀

    • I was the same with a job, 2 cats and a dog – and I worked from home as well, so I didn’t even have to travel to work! I really don’t know how you Mums cope(d) with or without someone to share the business of raising the little darlings… 😉
