Two years ago I started writing again after becoming a mom of three. As a mom of one, I would occasionally belt out a description of life with a baby, or jot down a poetic line or two but I found myself needing a glass of wine more than pen and paper each night. Oh, how easy it all was, looking back.
As a mom of two toddlers, I was excited to get a Kindle and a smartphone, to feel connected to other peoples words, more than my own.
And then as a mom of three I started to think about who I was again and what I wanted out of life beyond caring for my children. I had lots of half-baked ideas for business ventures and humanitarian endeavors but in the end, I ended right back where I started, writing and cooking, sometimes for money. Over the past two years I have led cooking demos, written recipes for Dinnertime UAE, The National, and Gems Magazine while and continuing to write fiction, submitting my work for occasional contests and classes. But mostly, I write for my bi-monthly writers group meetings and I get feedback, and I start over, each week on a goal that is hard to see and impossible to touch. I decided to start this blog as a place to show some of the projects I have been working on, as well as give myself another creative outlet beyond my desktop folder of unfinished chapters.
I hope you enjoy reading!
