I have writing ideas constantly.  So why do I never “find the time” to write them down?  I would like to say that it is because my kids are always ON around me.   Screaming, fighting, running around the house, demanding “more choc milk mommy” or “I WANT TO PLAY WITH THE IPAD!!”  That last one was my 4 year old daughter.  Thank goodness the baby can’t talk yet.  I would LOVE to use my kids as my excuse.  The only problem with this is that I had six free hours on Saturday and two free hours on Sunday from their chaos, and instead of getting out everything that has been running through my brain, I decided to sleep.

I sleep a lot.  I also assume my husband doesn’t want to, because I practically demand my Sunday afternoon nap.  Of course, he is playing video games, so what’s the difference?  In fact, I can’t claim the kid thing at all, becaue as I write now, the baby is in her crib and my older two are watching a Team Umizoomi marathon.  They’re entertained.  I’m writing.

I understand that excuses come up a lot with writers.  I’m defnitely not having a block, but I am hesitant to share what I want to share on this blog.  I’m afraid of my ideas being stolen, and that elusive book contract never coming because someone will do something BETTER with my idea.  I want to share it, I do, but the kids…
