Write Despite

The write-20-minutes-a-day-for-365-days-come-hell-or-high-water challenge

Moms who write

Nobody multitasks like a mother. Cathy and I should know, because we’re both raising kids, holding down full-time jobs and writing fiction. That is until they cart us off, anyway.

In the meantime, Literary Mama is one of the magazines we love because it hits home. Take a few minutes and enjoy this  Q&A with the wonderful and wonderfully accomplished Rebecca Barry from the magazine’s May issue.

A little teaser:

“Also, one thing that really helped me was deciding not to define myself only as a writer. I’m not any one thing; I’m all these things. Sometimes I’m writing, sometimes I’m editing, sometimes I’m sculpting, sometimes I’m consulting, sometimes I’m hanging out with my kids, sometimes I’m taking care of my mom. Who knows what I am? The less attention I spend on defining myself, the more things tend to flow.”
Enjoy!
