As soon as I became a mom, I was navigating split time like someone out of a sci-fi film: 1) Endless days and nights, often not sleeping, at the mercy of my little one’s every need 2) Weeks and months that raced by me without getting much writing or editing done.
It’s this time conundrum that’ll drive you bonkers!
Lucky us, last month we introduced accountability meetings into the Nest. Devin and I discovered that chatting on Zoom once a week (two times at night, two in the morning) meant we could have the kids around and still move forward on our writing projects. Planning and discussing counts, too! And sharing your current project is even better.
If you haven’t yet joined us for one of these meetings, pop over to the Accountability heading and you’ll find all the dates and times available. The meetings should be the perfect speed for anyone who’s writing but can’t meet in-person.
If you would like to get a good look at us, you can find us at Meet Your Literary Community on Oct 6th, 2018 from 8-noon at the Phoenix Public Market. We’ll be doing mini- writing critique sessions, so if you have a writing question, idea, or a page or two of notes, come prepared to sit with us for some feedback. And there’ll be literary games for the kids, too!
