Perspectives on Motherhood and Writing

MW Sarah

My interview about Perspectives on Motherhood and Writing is up today at Emily C. Gardner’s lovely blog, Primitive Roads.  I loved thinking through the answers to Emily’s questions, so check out the post if you’d like to read more!  And now I’ll ask you some of the same questions:

How has your current season of life impacted your writing? What is your writing battle cry?

See you at Emily’s!

  1. I feel like I could have written your answers! I’m so trying to find some time to blog and also work on my scrapbooking. I’ve been considering waking up extra early (5am) so I can have an hour all to myself. I’ll figure it out one of these days!

    • I’m not too creative that early in the mornings, but hey – it might be the perfect time for you! I am up super-early these days for my commute, but I’m taking advantage of it with tons of audiobooks. Makes me feel like less of a slacker for never reading an actual book (unless picture books for bedtime stories count?)

    • I’m the same way — I try not to let the blog become an obligation when I’m super swamped with other things, but I hate to abandon it for too long!

  2. I used to post a lot of parenting topics, up for discussion, because I wanted advice. As my first child got older, I needed less of this because I was more confident in myself. These days, I post mostly photos and the stories behind them. I also post personal stuff. These posts are also easier to create than “how tos” on photography which I liked to do for a while as well.

    • I have loved your posts recently! The photography ones are great, but yeah — that kind of thing requires a lot more time and effort! That’s why I don’t write Cooking School posts more often, either.

  3. I enjoyed reading your answers, and found myself identifying with many of your responses!

    For me, I was maintaining a blog for about two years for my business on higher education topics. But I found myself itching to get more personal, especially after finding out back in Feb 2014 my husband and I were expecting our first child (who is due any day now!).

    So I went ahead and launched a side project, my personal writing website, and have found it immensely fulfilling. Unlike the business one, I don’t spend any time promoting it. Instead I figure the right audience will find me if and when they are meant to.

    • Thanks, Jessica! I write a lot for work, but it’s a totally different kind of writing than I do on my blog. It’s nice to have a place to write with less structure — sometimes I write about my family, sometimes about my hobbies, or sometimes I try to do something more like an essay or poem. (Rarely… but I can if I want to! And I love that.)
