"When do you suggest I do that?" I fired back. "I have a daughter who has commandeered my computer every night for the past week."
"Well, I've got this big project ..." Bless her heart. She does have a big project. A big English project. Her cow of a teacher only gave them six weeks to do this project knowing full-well that Daughter 1 would wait until a week before it's due.
|Good news--she finished her project on time.|
And, even though she had taken over my computer, I should have been writing and blogging and Daughter 1 knew it. She's my first editor.
The most common question I'm asked in interviews is how my daughters, my husband, my family feels about the things that I share, and I always reply that they are my first editors. If they tell me not to share a story or to not blog about an event, I don't. Sometimes, even, they give me a story or an idea or fodder for my writing, whether it's a chapter for one of my books or for my blog.
So, today my Friday Friend is Daughter 1 ... she keeps me going, in more ways than one.
