May you always remember where you put your house keys, and have them to hand when you're juggling two babies at the front door.
It's 9. I've got hours of sleep to catch up on. Good night! Check out my latest book The Pregnancy Diaries - a personal and positive account of pregnancy and childbirth. Available in ebook and paperback! Posted by Emily Benet at No comments:. Labels: parenting. Saturday, 17 August Terrible news for a writer mum My typing wakes up the baby.
Hoover is fine. Leaf-blowing is fine. Revving up a motorbike repeatedly I hate you, whoever you are is fine. Typing, not fine. When I was eight months pregnant, we moved to the flat next door. It had one more room, which became my office. An office beside the baby's room. A sunny, cool, uncluttered room where I could snatch moments to write while my little one snored softly in her crib next door.
I typed like mad while I was pregnant. I wanted to finish my novel before my due date. Perhaps the sound now reminds my baby of humbler times, when she lived in a cramped flat and survived on a liquid diet.

I thought of my big white desk, my notebooks within reach, my selection of biros, my view of the pine trees. Was my typing really waking her up? Or, was I just being paranoid? I returned to my office and began to type:. C-H-A - I heard a stirring I stopped typing. I picked up my laptop, charger, notebook, biro, phone, cup of tea and tiptoed down the corridor, passed her room and out onto the terrace. The cicadas buzzed, the leaf-blower grumbled, the motorbike revved, baby snored, I typed and all was well in the world again.
When it comes to writing dreams and babies, you have to adapt to survive! Pregnant and looking for a positive account of pregnancy and childbirth? Check out the diary I kept while I was pregnant! It's available from Amazon. Labels: motherh , writing life. Tuesday, 30 July Oh hello, Ambition. We meet again.
I feel it in the pit of my stomach. The fiery flicker of ambition. I haven't felt it for a while. Depending on how it manifests, it's not always that helpful. If ambition makes me feel like I should be doing something other than what I'm doing playing with the baby, feeding her, hanging out the nappies It only creates anxiety.
I gave up anxiety when I moved to Mallorca. Impatience is a waste of energy too. This writing journey isn't a sprint, so I need to remember to sit comfortably. I finished my fourth novel sixth book last week. That's why I'm feeling like this. It's been so much work and I don't want it to disappear into oblivion.

Independent publishing has a lot of perks, and though sales might be better, it's a route which won't get my book in an airport book shop a recurring dream of mine , or made into a film every author's dream! However, if I was to embark on the traditional route once again, it could be well over a year before the book saw the light of day, if at all. At the moment, I feel like making lists of small, manageable goals. I've a lot of things to update: website, blog, social media channels I want to give this novel it's best chance.
I haven't settled on a title yet, which is very annoying. The lives of four neighbours intertwine - think scams, lies, disappointments and romance - and naturally everyone's hiding something. I suppose, first step would be to nail down a title! Too Good to be True? Too Good to Miss? The Hidden Agenda? The Pretenders?
