Motivation

“I caught my day-care provider drugging my children with cough syrup and Tylenol to get them to sleep while I was away,” Brenda says. “It was then that I decided that I needed to do something from home.”
Brenda Novak

I just had to share this. Why do you write?
For myself, I like to write, I have lots of ideas and plenty of time as I am unemployed.

Unemployed means I am a stay at home mom who spends hours each week in the car driving teens around and providing a safe/fun place for them after school. I hardly ever say ‘no’ to a sleep over, clean and grocery shop for my family, provide a listening ear and advice as needed (FYI teen girls eat alot too). Therefore the ‘plenty of free time’ is just an illusion. Did I mention the 3 year old yellow lab?
Now if I can just sell something…..actually it might be a good idea for me to have someone else read my stuff first.

Baby steps.

Enjoy your week!

About elisethroughthelookingglass

A currently unemployed stay at home mom with the long time dream of writing my own novel. Not the 'Great American Novel', just a fun read. Since I am now the parent of teenagers I have been relegated to the back burner and am tired of waiting for my favorite authors to get their books out. Wish me luck on my trip through the looking glass.
