By this point - it's been soooo long! - I've been kicked off the #IWSG list, but I had to write this blog post because I think so often we writers are really insecure about it.
24 Hours is Not Enough
Yeah, I've been there.

P.S. I'm not going to sign up for the #IWSG list again until I'm more consistently able to participate, but you should definitely check out the blogger who are much more on the ball than me!
I write about, with, for, and around kids all day. (Well, maybe I do the dishes too. Sometimes.)
