My Life as a Write-At-Home-Mom

Back in May, I blogged about my decision to quit my job as a part-time library lady in order to have more time to dedicate to my family and my writing. In August, that decision became reality when my kids went back to school, but I didn't.

It was strange at first--and exciting--to have so much time! Never before had the days felt so luxuriously long. There was so much I could do, so many things I could fill my day with. Driving kids to and from school, baking, housework, reading and, of course, writing. Lots of writing. HOURS of writing each day.

I am loving it!

I don't have to fret about having time to write. I don't have to debate whether to stay up late to work on a manuscript or to go to bed and read or watch the news with hubby. I no longer feel the desperate urge to spend hours on Saturday morning working on my WIP when I could be hanging out with my kids playing Mario Kart or baking cookies.

Being a wife and mother has always been the most important thing to me. It was what I dreamed of most when I was growing up. My life is a dream come true!

And now I have plenty of time to live the dream while pursuing another.

What about you? Are you living the dream, pursuing the dream, or both?


  1. So awesome. Glad you have a new schedule and a new outlook. It's important. I haven't been here in a long time and I'm glad to see you have a book coming out.


  2. Thanks, Ron! And it's good to see you!

  3. You have a truly beautiful life, Becky. :-)

  4. Thanks, Angie. I kinda like it. :-)


I would love to hear from you!
