Good morning everyone,

Swati, your short story was vividly emotional. You must continue to explore this venue of writing!!

Heather, you captured so well your struggle of trying to remain positive when life can get lonely and difficult without your husband.

Peryl, I love your stories on your boys and I don't think it is because I am biased, having three of my own. I live for humor and you sure have a lot of it.

I will do my best to keep reading today while managing my sick ten year old and feisty five year old.

And...my first attempt at a short (very short) story on my blog....http://www.thesinglemotherschronicles.com/2010/03/01/the-relationsh...

Really would love your thoughts and promise to comment back within a day!

I'm slowly but surely going down the list.

Swati, thanks for checking me out...I'm your newest follower as well. Love the book reviews. I'm always in the market for new reading material for my kids and for myself. After I write this I'm going to check out the other things you wrote.

Karen, your post was beautifully written and with such honesty. Thank you for sharing!

The Obnoxious SAHM, I loved your post as well. I wrote more in my comment to you, but I have no idea when I'll be able to call myself a writer. Maybe when someone calls me one? Hmmm.

I'm off to read more!!

And BTW, if you only read 1 or 2 of my blogs posts, choose one of these...they're my favorites....

Karen - I really enjoyed reading your post - it was heartfelt, original and thought-provoking. Thanks for sharing it.

Swati - I just read your "accomplish the bare minimum" - loved it - and left a comment too :).

Hi Ladies: I wrote two items I thought I would share with you:

1) a blog post at working mother (where I would be eternally grateful for comments!) at http://tinyurl.com/yfvfcq9 titled "Accomplish the Bare Minimum"

2) an article for singlerose.com called Interview to Get the Job... http://www.singlerose.com/articles/show.html?ID=517

Looking forward to any thoughts!

Hi Heather - as I said in my comments on you blog - I cannot figure out why Chuck E Cheese exhausts me so much when they manage the parties for you!! I think it's bec it's so WILD in there!

Hi Karen - Your post was very well done; lots of emotion and feeling conveyed by what was said and what was not said. I hope I don't sound contradictory in saying this - but there are parts where I was left wanting one or two more lines in some of your paragraphs so the full impact of what you said really came through. Not that you have to explain every movement or anything, but really let me feel what you felt a little more.
Enjoyed reading it and look forward to your thoughts on any of my posts too.

If you are on Twitter, please say hello to me over there too at twitter.com/jillylivi

And remember that most people reading online will only read your first or second paragraph, so keep it short and interesting.
Comment by Jillylivi on March 1, 2010 at 8:34am
I wanted to touch on something that I have been trying to focus on with my own writing.

Before publishing a post be sure to walk away from it and revisit it a few times.

Edit, edit, edit! Look for typos, proper grammar and sentence structure before publishing, it will only make your writing more enjoyable for the reader.
