Where have I been? I’d like to know, too. I know where I’ve been physically, geographically, emotionally, but career-wise? Not so much. I have taken on my Mom-wife-housekeeper role with a little more vigor, now that I don’t “work” anymore. Plus, I have attended one writer’s retreat and one conference for children’s book writers and illustrators. I’ve ridden the self-confidence roller coaster concerning my young adult novel (”It’s good!” up up up “It’s crap!” down down down, repeat….). But I need more. What? Community? A consistent routine? A critique group? A writing practice group? A good massage? Hmmm.
