Motherhood and Writing

Being a writer and a mother at the same time is hard work! I don't know how other writer moms do it! My kid is three and he's at the "million question stage". He's got a million questions about EVERYTHING: "Mommy, what are you doing?", "Mommy, you want to play with me?", "Mommy, can I have chicken nuggets?", "Mommy, can I have a sticker?", "Mommy, what's that sound?", "Mommy, where's daddy?". They just go on and on and on and on and........
No matter how many times I answer his questions, he continues to ask the same ones. I know that kids are curious but geez Louise! This curious?! (Who is Louise, by the way?) Right now he's taking a nap so at least I have time to write this blog post.

Because I'm a stay at home mom, he doesn't go to school yet. I'm re-evaluating that decision, now. When I was working, he went to Pinecrest Children's Academy. Sounds prestigious, doesn't it? Don't let the name fool you. They weren't that great. He STAYED sick. Now, I'm looking into the Headstart program here, however the social workers and directors are pretty rude to you over the phone. Actually, when I visited, they were rude to my face. Needless to say, it doesn't make me want to send my child there!
If you are a parent and a writer, what are some ways that you juggle quality family time, and writing time?

I decided that I want to be in shape. I have the Insanity work out DVDs. I don't know if you've ever heard of it, but if you have, then you know that it's death on a DVD. You go everyday for like 60 days. Today was supposed to be my day one, and I only made it through about the first five minutes of the fit test. For those of you unfamiliar with this particular Shaun T workout, you're probably thinking that, that isn't very impressive. Well, I'll have you know that in that first five minutes, you are doing about 5 different workouts. At unnaturally high speeds! When he started doing the "advanced jumping jacks", I was done!
I'm not quitting, though. I fully intend to continue tomorrow. Hopefully I'll do a little bit better. Hopefully I'll have a beach body by the end of it. Or at least something close. I'm considering mixing in some other workouts as well. I should probably get some of that recovery shake stuff, too. Heaven knows my body needs some recovering after that! The DVD says that it's good....they're probably just trying to sell it, though. LOL
Right now, I"m going to shower and then come back to my desk chair and attempt to focus my mind on twin assassins......

Lose Myself/New Un-named Project

I've decided that I have it in me to work on two different novesl at once. They are completely different generes. I can't stop thinking about the other project, though! I don't want to stop writing Lose Myself either. So, I've decided that I'm just going to do them both.
At the moment, I'm trying to think of names for the hero/heroine of this new un-named novel. They have to be strong names as they are teenage assasins. Yea, that's right. You didn't misread that. TEENAGE ASSASINS! Don't freak out, though. They aren't doing it for fun. They have their reasons.....

Two Projects At Once

I'm still working on Lose Myself. I've also decided to work on another project that I came up with early last year. I was watching the Bruce Willis movie Red last night, and it made me think of it. More about that in the future, though.
Last night I was trying to work on Lose Myself. My husband came home early from work, and that's when we started watching that movie so my writing plans were a bit derailed. Planning to get back on track hopefully tonight, though. I made a bit of progress before he got here. I've always had trouble writing sex scenes. Guess that's a bit of a strange thing for an erotica writer to say. Haha. I'm getting better. Thank heavens for the Internet.  It's so easy to find loads of inspiration there.

New Piece

Working on a new piece. It's called Lose Myself. It was inspired by a dream that I had a few weeks ago. The title actually came from the Marsha Ambrosius album. I love that song.
I'm mostly focusing on Erotica these days. That's pretty much where my mind set has been. I think this is going to be a good start. I have another idea in the works as well. It's actually building on an idea that I had a few years back. Just need to make a few changes to make it fit my writing style now. Anyway. I'll post an excerpt of Lose Myself.....

"I lay back against the pillows and stared into Channing’s eyes. That’s all we did for just a moment; stared into each other’s eyes. Then Channing moved, and I stopped thinking all together. I only felt. I felt her press against me as her lips moved to my neck and left a trail of soft kisses from my earlobe to my lips. It was like the first time all over again. Her lips tasted like peaches; ripe juicy peaches. I couldn’t get enough! I gently bit into those peach like lips and while juice didn’t flow from them, the juices did begin flowing from my pussy, soaking my panties instantly.

When I woke up, I was sore. A good kind of sore, though. I remembered every detail from the previous night. I would never forget it.

As I lay back in my sleigh style bed, Channing lay next to me gliding her fingers across my fragrant skin; the scent of my twilight and jasmine scented body wash still lingered in the air from our earlier shower together.

Channing and I had worked hard to get to this point. The obstacles that stood in our way at first seemed insurmountable. We did it, though. I realized that I had to lose myself before I could completely love Channing......"

I hope you like.......
