I’m a Literary Mama!

LMToday is the day!

I received the official news from the editors at Literary Mama that my essay I submitted to them in late Summer, which eventually went through six revisions, has gone live!

I’m so excited for this “origin story” to be out there in print. It tells how I came to be a writer, a title which I am finally beginning to own. The process of working with the editors at LM was wonderful for me. They were patient, encouraging and I could feel with each back and forth that they were really wanting my piece to be the best version possible. I think we achieved that together: my words + their editing prowess.

If you’re interested in great writing by women, who also happen to be mothers, please do yourself a favor and head over here to read some amazing stuff.

And while you’re there, read my essay and join the revolution, won’t you?

Thanks so much for your continued support of me and my writing. It means everything to me!

PS – If you have a story to tell, or a personal revolution you’re wanting to start – but need guidance just how to do this in an authentic way, I highly recommend Jeffrey Davis and his Tracking Wonder team of professionals. Jeffrey is leading this group of amazing individuals who are committed to doing business as unusual, and unlocking your best potential.

  1. Wonderful essay and great job on getting it on Literary Mama! It was also difficult for me to grant myself the “permission” to call myself a writer. But just like you, I just reached that point where I decided to own the title. And I ran with it. 🙂

    And I didn’t realize that you went to UD. I teach at UD! 🙂

  2. Thanks, Sharon! I think that the permission piece is so challenging, but I’m going to run with it too!

    And yes, I know that you teach at UD – as I was reading your book (which I would really like to talk more with you about!) I said to my hubby about midway through – “Wouldn’t it be cool if she worked at UD?” I was thrilled to see that you did. I’m actually going to be on campus this June for my reunion (I’m not going to share what number it is, because it can’t possibly be true – as I still feel only 19 years old!) If you’re there, I’ll stop by – I’m sure it’s changed so much, but I LOVE that place. Go Flyers!!!


  3. Woo-hoo! Great essay, Barb! You do incredibly important work, and I wish that every expectant parent had an advocate like you on their side. Getting your book out into the world is a great plan to help that happen!

  4. Thanks so much, Brenna! Your support means an awful lot to me and having just finished reading your book, I can say that there will be a lot of people impacted by your words, as well! So helpful to have a mutual appreciation society when it comes to our writing process, eh?


I'd love to hear what you have to say!
