Well, for those who don’t know, Miss Bella Catania was born via c-section exactly 9 days ago…do the math, and you’ll see that she was born on her mommy’s favorite day of the whole year: Christmas Day!
But now that she’s here and we’re in a pretty predictable routine (at least for now), mommy is starting to get her groove back. For 9 months I struggled with inspiration/motivation for my writing, and even reading or critiquing for my [awesome] crit partners. I was firmly ensconced in Pregnant World! And it wasn’t until a couple days ago that I even realized how ensconced I had been. I often wondered if I would ever feel like writing again, but mostly I was too exhausted or preoccupied to care. And I assumed that once Bella was here, I REALLY wouldn’t feel like writing. But boy was I wrong! I’ve got 9 months of pent up creativity banging on my brain to get out.
So, without further ado, I will leave you all with this picture of my precious girl and turn my attention to manuscript #3, maybe a short story (or two) and critiques for my crit partners.
Happy writing and reading!
