I would like to join you. I am a mom of one young adult son. Believe it or not, strangers keep telling him he looks like Jason Mamoa (but not as tall). And believe it or not, I don’t watch much TV, so the first time it happened I had to ask my son who they were talking about. He showed me on his phone.
He is the reason I am writing a book. I began it years ago and had to keep shelving it as I tended to real life responsibilities that didn’t allow me much free time. When he was young, he loved for me to read aloud to him. We also listened to books on tape whenever we were in the car. When we didn’t have books on tape, we’ make up stories together.
I am trained as a poet, but had never taken on a novel. When I picked up the pen to write again, I wanted it to be to create something I could leave for my son. I wanted to give him one of the stories he loved to read or listen to. He has never let me give up on it. He said he feels like it belongs to both of us now.
It is very good to see so many writer moms on Wattpad. I had no idea. Cheers to all of you who are finding a way to tackle parenting and your personal passions.
