aside from the mama thing

Profile: saidee brown

Been making some changes. The bits that will remain. I have three young children. One is not yet in school. Time is limited and sacred. Writing is not a luxury but rather a must although it gets pushed under the bed and tangled up in discarded steatshirts and out of season shoes. I hope to feel at home here. I Hope to expose some nerves and document what I am living. I am currently writing a bunch of what is called creative non fiction I think but I am processing it out and heading towards fiction. It will be a leap as my life has been at times stranger then fiction but I am letting go of the idea that fiction should be believable. I am letting go all together and looking towards where the unknown leads. Thanks for stopping by.
