The writing - parenting symphony.

By D Kai Wilson

Is there anything finer? Parenting - writing – one just seems to naturally segue into the other. Its like music in many ways - we direct one into the other without pause ;)

I write full time – I’m a freelancer during the day, producing a couple of e-books and a lot of articles for three different companies – myself and my team spend most of the month researching and learning about all sorts of fun stuff – and at night, I still work on that ‘best seller’. Soon it’ll be University during the day, kids in the evening and weekends, freelancing between homework assignments and ‘best sellers’ when I’ve got thirty seconds to breathe.

Luckily, one of the two degrees I’m sitting is creative writing – which means I’ll get to write stories, and poems, and scripts as part of my course work – but for the next three years, things are going to be mad. And I’m delighted to be able to blog about it ;)

All joking aside, I’m one of the techie bloggers on the project, so if anyone wants I can share some of the technical stuff ‘mama’ can do, before and after the book contract – blogging, promoting via forums, and other fun stuff. Just ask :)

Hmm. Mine's more of a cacophony than a symphony, but you're right that parenting gives you lots of material to write about! :)
