Contemplative: expressing or involving prolonged thought

Chaos: complete disorder and confusion

I’ve been a writer since I could hold a pencil (with a box full of journals to prove it), but ironically enough, ten years of teaching English caused me to set down my pencil and replace it with a red pen. My role shifted from creator to educator, editor, and (occasionally) inspirer. It was (and still is) a great gig, but I missed that creative, cathartic outlet. I had heard of blogging and while I was intrigued, I didn’t know what I would even blog about.

Then, in the winter of 2014, my three year-old son was diagnosed with autism. Suddenly, I had a lot to blog about. For about a year, I processed my son’s diagnosis through writing, making invaluable connections with other parents with similar struggles, helping me mature into a better, more self-aware mother in the process.

I’m still blogging about being a mother, but since reclaiming my pencil, my writing world has grown beyond my blog. I am now a teacher who freelance writes with a reclaimed childhood dream of writing a novel, all while raising two young boys with my husband.

My writing helps compartmentalize the chaos that is life.

Thanks for contemplating with me.

  1. I am excited to see what comes spewing from your mouth (or fingertips, I guess), and hope you find the catharsis you’re looking for. And don’t forget that PG-13 movies can still have 1 use of that glorious word beginning with F. I’d love to be more explicit, but when the time is right, it should be you that gets to use it.
