Writer Mama #Bloghop - Join the chaos 5/4/15

If you have small children and also write books, I know you've been asked the big question...

"Where do you find the time?"

Usually my answer is, "I dunno...I just do it." Writer mamas and papas know that we don't magically have more time in our lives than everyone else, we just make space for writing because it's important to us. 

On 5/4/15 writer parents will unite to share their secrets and support each other in the Writer Mama Bloghop! I know you're distracted and don't have much time, so I'll make it easy. Sign up on the linky below, then schedule a post to go live on 5/4/15.

Your post can be about anything related to writing while jugging the responsibilities of being a parent. Here are some questions you can address in your post if you need some ideas:
  • How do you make time to write?
  • How does your spouse feel about your writing?
  • What are the common questions or comments you get about being a writing mom?
  • Where is the strangest place or circumstance where you've found time to get some writing done?
  • How much time a week do you spend writing? How quickly do you write books?
  • What impact (if any) do you hope to have on your children by being an author? Would you want your children to follow in your footsteps?
  • How old will your children have to be before you let them read your books (if ever)?
  • What tips or words of wisdom do you have to share?
Again, these are just ideas to spark your creativity, you don't need to answer each one in your post. But you can if that's easiest for you! I'm not picky about the definition of "mama." Anyone who is a caregiver of some kind can participate and men are more than welcome!

A random poster will win a Writer Mama Care Package (US) or a $25 Amazon gift card (INTL). Remember to sign up on the linky below!

The Tina Fey ads in this post are from the "What's Your 20?" campaign from American Express. I promise that this bloghop is not sponsored by American Express (although wouldn't that be nice?...feel free to send me money, American Express) but these ads do a great job showing the life of a writer mom.


  1. What a fantastic idea for a bloghop! As a writer mama, I get a lot of inspiration from other hardworking writer parents. Can't wait to see everyone's posts!

  2. This is a fantastic idea. I am so tempted to join because I know the frustration of being a working mom who is also trying to write a book. I am just afraid to sign up because I am so worn out from the A to Z challenge and I don't want to commit to something I can't finish . Can I think about it and join late?
    Thank you
