Nathalie's Notes

Raising the Hardy Boys

It's March already? How did this happen?

33 doesn't seem to be much different than 32: laundry, picking up books and legos and writing in the margins. And I love it. Except for the part about how I waste my minutes.

I've been using my office time this week to work on my pitch for "Breaking Branches." Formerly called "Pants on Fire" until I saw I'd been writing it so long, someone beat me to it. Which is fine since "Breaking Branches" is the perfect title for Isabella's and Ani's story.)

I've also been trying to get that darn web site dialed in by tomorrow so I could unveil it at the same time as I host my first guest blogger – Writer Mama Christina Katz.

(Doesn't it sound strange to "hear" me say "darn"? I know. But I just have to get Sam's swearing under control.)

Anyway, I just might make my deadline, especially if I walk to the Red Bull store this afternoon.

Come back tomorrow for a chance to learn more about Writer Mama and a chance to win a free, signed copy of: Writer Mama, How to Raise a Writing Career Alongside Your Kids by Christina Katz (Writer's Digest Books 2007)

"Kids change your life, but they don't necessarily have to end your career. Stay-at-home moms will love this handy guide to rearing a successful writing career while raising their children. The busy mom's guide to writing life, this book gives stay-at-moms the encouragement and advice they need including everything from getting started and finding ideas to actually finding time to do the work – something not easy to do with the pitter-patter of little feet. With advice on how to network and form a a business, this nurturing guide covers everything a writer mama needs to succeed at her second job."
