|“Who wants to become a writer? And why? Because it’s the answer to everything. … It’s the streaming reason for living. To note, to pin down, to build up, to create, to be astonished at nothing, to cherish the oddities, to let nothing go down the drain, to make something, to make a great flower out of life, even if it’s a cactus.”—Enid Bagnold
My name is Lyn and I am doing a review as a judge for WDC's Dear Me contest
As a writer, I know what it feels like to be reviewed! Please take what you feel is helpful and disregard the rest. Only YOU know what is right for your writing!
Title: Dear Me,
First Impression: I'm sorry for your loss. Grieving is not easy on anyone,hon. I agree with making those memories with your own babies, everything will eventually fall into place.
What needs your attention: I didn't see anything that distracted me as I read.
Favorite Parts: You're a crafter like me. I love doing things with my hands too! I can't be at the computer all the time, my mind shuts down. Yet, when I'm crocheting... I sing, listen to music or audio books. That's one way you could increase your reading of the great books out there.
I chuckled about the sleeping and wasting valuable time. I'm always on my hubby's case for that. He sleeps way too much.
Overall Impression: I agree with your muse's assessment about spreading too thin. We're all guilty of that. If I may Jennifer, choose what gives you the most joy, find a way to include your children in that activity and make the most of those moments for they will become precious memories.
I wondered what happened to you in 30 day, now I understand. I's challenging juggling writing when there are lots of other fun things going on. You'll find the balance needed.
Thank you for letting me read your work. It was my pleasure! Lyn
