The people who taught me how to get my babies to sleep told me that sleep begets sleep. I’d have to agree. I also believe that writing begets writing, and to that end have committed to blogging about my process whilst writing a phd with two kids. Kids? Not even. A two and a half year old (from here on out called Monkey) and a six month old (from here on out called Sparrow) who lies sleeping in my arms as I type on my phone, his wheezy bronchialitis breaths pulling his chest open and closed.
I also believe that I can be both a mother and a writer (and so much more) and so I’m bringing myself back to words with all the strength I can muster.
