I wish I had more time to write. With each crashing item my toddler throws to the ground or Code Red bodily harm situation he puts himself in around the house, I have less and less time on my hands. My blog feels a little dusty (was that a tumbleweed I just saw fly by on the screen?) but sometimes real life needs me more than usual.
However, there are some projects for which I will always make time. For which I will brush off even my most pressing DVR programming after the kids go to bed in order to contribute. When Jen Mann (People I Want to Punch in the Throat) knocks on your door (well, on your email) and asks you to write for her latest anthology, no amount of rose ceremonies or Us Weekly is going to get in my way. Because I’m committed, damn it. Or should be committed, probably.
I was thrilled to be included in Jen’s first two anthologies, I Just Want to Pee Alone and I Just Want to Be Alone. Fun fact: IJWTPA has spent nearly two years as a national best-seller on Amazon. Apparently, moms everywhere can’t pee alone. So, on March 27, there will be more!
