I've been sick, one of those weird virusy-flu things that seem to have hit this fair city earlier than usual this year, but here's a new post.
I want everyone to know about this group blog: MamasInk, at www.MamasInk.com. The mamas writing in are part of the MamaWriters group, and they include some of everyone's fave mama writers, like Ann Douglas, and Andrea Buchanan, and Ayun Halliday, and Katie Alison Granju, and Hillary Flowers, and Erica Lutz, and many, many more. I'm there too.
What I love about this site, well, beyond the fact that these mamas are damn good writers and make beautiful use of words and vision, is the example it sets. Of mothers working together on a project. Everyone could go their own separate way, do motherhood in isolation, and write in isolation, not trusting others. But this site, and the MamaWriters in general, have a broader, wider vision of women trusting each other and working together.
This vision we need.
And thanks to Anne-Marie at A Mama's Rant for her great blog about my blog. She's at http://mamarant.blogs.com/a_mamas_rant/, so stop on by. And one of these days I'll figure out how to do my links. Feel free, anyone, to send me advice!
