I’m back!!!

Standard

After a long hiatus from this blog I’m back! The reason for my absence was this little guy, who was born early last spring.

I haven’t worried too much about fitting writing back into my life until this last January rolled around. It felt like things were back into a steady rhythm of naps, preschool, play dates, and all the shenanigans of life with an infant and a four year old. So I decided to get back to writing. I’m focusing less on articles and more on picture books. I decided that with my time being so limited I should cut to the chase and do what I love most. I’m still writing for Spigot Science Magazine on a regular basis but outside of that I’m not chasing down anything new.

It’s nice to have a project to sink my teeth into that is just for me. Everything else that I do seems to get undone as soon as I turn my back (i.e. “Why is there poop in the bath tub which I just cleaned?”). My writing time is still meager, as it is limited to a few mornings a week when the nap-gods smile upon me, as they are right now. But for now, I’ll take what I can get and run with it.
