I'm a 30 year old stay at home mother of 3 girls (nicknamed Munchkie, Pixie, and SweetTea) who are 7, 5, and 5 (yup, twins!). I have been writing poetry and song lyrics for as long as I can remember, and keeping them since I was 12. I have had two distinct novels in my head for almost as long but haven't been sure how to write them. I have visions in my head of curling up on a couch with a notebook and writing it all down, but with small kids and the need to eat and pee it's too hard to sit still for the hours and hours and hours required for this.
I have dealt with depression most of my life (my writing from when I was 12 reflects it, so I know at least since then). My husband and my girls have been the best part of my life, and have given me the most healing.
I grew up in a Christian household, and still see God as vital, though I have issues with religion (the rules). I find that focusing in the rules can easily distract me from the relationship.
I also grew up in a small town, in a farming community. I moved to the "big city" when I was 20.
