Hit by inspiration

And just like that inspiration has hit.....stay tuned.

It always amazes me where inspiration and creativity are born, because often they find their birth in an everday, normal situation. 

I was introduced to a new author by a dear friend, and it has inspired me to document my pregnancy journey.  The book is called "Operating Instructions" and the author is Anne Lamont.  You should refer this book to any new mom as an alternative view on the Babies R Us, Gerber, Fischer Price visions of motherhood that the media pressures us all with.  Her writing style is raw and honest and I am enjoying her courage to say the things that most of us feel, but shy away from expressing. 

Due to my new inspiration I may or may not be using this blog to create my new piece.  If I do, the blog will most likely become private as I'm not sure I'm ready to share the most honest pieces of myself to the unknown, anonymous public.  I'll keep you posted....


  1. I love Anne Lamott! You should definitely check out her book, Bird by Bird. It's all about creative writing and finding your groove. I think you would dig it.

    1. Thanks for the tip, I'll check it out next! Operating Instructions was one of those books that found me exactly when I needed to be found. I love it.
