Writer's Wednesday: Revision

More than once I've heard successful female authors talk about writing books while they had babies at home.  I wondered how they did it.

Now I know.

It's like eating and showering and everything else when you have babies at home.

Somehow, you manage.

I don't like crumbs on the kitchen counter or piles of clothes in the laundry room. I don't like my office email inbox increasing. I don't like thinking I've returned friends' phone calls only to discover it was in a dream or my imagination only.  I don't like fewer than nine hours of sleep at night.

But, hey, since having children makes those things happen anyway, I'm attempting to embrace the reality.

In stolen moments that could result in a neater home/inbox/social calendar, I'm revising my novel.

And just like my new life with kids, the revisions are great.
