Your comment is the first thing I read this morning and it put a huge smile on my face.

My "fairytale" life, albeit sometimes Grimm, stems from my enchanting mother.

You inspired me to show all of you my non-fiction piece I wrote that has now turned into an unpublished, un-marketed, children's book. Click Here.

If you like this, I might give you the first few pages of the book to get all of your critique.

I humbly and timidly submit this post for your review. Writing has long been a passion of mine, but only something I have recently revisited. My dream would be to write a novel and get paid for this so I am really looking forward to the constructive criticism and support.

Thanks Tina! I really appreciate hearing that you enjoyed my blog and that post specifically. I love to write and I find it particularly gratifying to hear that my writing has evoked emotion in the reader, that piece has been the one that seems to have reached people the deepest. Thanks for the feedback. I am going to check out your blog now too! Happy writing.

Lola-I absolutely love your blog. I was in tears reading your mothers day 2009 post! We have all been there as parents. I can remember avoiding restaurants all together in fear if how people would react to my twins behavior. But we muttled through as we knew the only way to properly train them would be to take them to the places we loved to avoid. The older couples advice was the best. We will treasure those memories when they are grown and have families of their own. Thanks for blogging about that!

I am using my blog as a way to get the creative juices flowing as well...www.mindlessconvo.blogspot.com

I look forward to reading more of your posts!!!

Hi all: I was out of town and it looks like I missed a lot...

Jillian, thanks so much for your comments over the last day and a half! I think my writing is getting more descriptive and, well, "exact" with fewer words. It sure has taken a long time and I appreciate everyone bearing with me.

Richele: I am so sorry to hear about everything going on for you with the book and your mom; I agree with some other comments below...just let it play out and know the right things will happen. So funny, one children's book I have started and modified is also a bed time story my mom made up...I better check in with her...! I hope it works out soon for you.

And all: thanks for your visits and comments on my writing - it's SO helpful!

Richele,
I agree that a wait and see attitude is your best approach. I could see myself having the same emotional conversations with my mother if she and I were ever intertwined in the same project. Hopefully things will settle down, and maybe in the meantime you can focus on those other books for a while. Good luck with all of it!
Comment by Richele on March 17, 2010 at 1:24am
Thanks Jillian...I pretty much have come to the conclusion. I am going to let it ride. For all I know the book will get turned down. lol. All I can do is see what happens. I'm sure editors have worked with difficult people before! lol. Who knows, maybe the editor will like my character and I can make a book out of that. It's in God's hands now. My mom is a good person...she is just an emotional one...and more attached to her story than I realized. It probably looked like I was taking it over...but on my end I thought I was helping her achieve something she never would have on her own. Whatever. I will cross that bridge when I come to it. The book is not published now and the worst thing is that it won't get published..that's not the end of the world. I have two of my own children's books to work on anyway.
