Writing a bit while nursing...

Just put the almost 7-month-old down.  Started working on the book a bit while nursing.  Why not?  One day I will laugh and tell my kids how I worked on this book while being a Mom. Literally.  Nursing and all.  Took a short break to write this post and eat a bowl of late night cereal.  Short post, but wanted to update something.  Track that I'm still working on this project.  Oh, and to say big thanks to Pinterest for the motivational quotes. :)

Still here. Believe it or not.

23,000 words.  Considering I started writing my book in January of 2010, that may seem pathetic.  But, to be quite honest, I've taken several months off.  Raising kids takes over and I let this go sometimes.  BUT I do return.  And I will continue to return and finish.  I want this too badly.  My kids are three, almost two, and six months old.  It's chaotic around here.  I'm trying my best to be a great wife, great mother, great homemaker.  And it is fulfilling.  Truly, it is enough.  Still I feel strongly about writing.  I feel strongly about the book I'm working on and the impact it could have one people.  I also have an idea for my second book already that I'm looking forward to beginning.  Must. Finish. First. Book. First.  And enjoy myself in the process.  And occasionally blog, just so there is a record somewhere of this process that gets stuck in the internet world forever.  :)
