Taking a Risk

My writer website is up! I would love for you to check it out, I have been working on it for a while, and I wanted it to be perfect. The thing is, the more I worked on it the more I changed things and the more I was writing and re-writing. The site is now live!

I am a little nervous, this is a risk I am taking. I could flop, and not do as well as I hope to do with my writing. But it is something that I love to do, and yes, someday I do hope to write books!

It also feels good to have something to look forward to, a "job" where I can do something I love and contribute to my family. Are you a stay-at-home mom? Do you find yourself trying to find creative ways to be a "woman" and not just a mom. Oh how I love being a mom, but I also need to do something else besides laundry, dishes, cooking, cleaning, and potty training. Oh I know, most of my writing does evolve around being a mom, what can I say, I really do love that job!

Would you do me a favor? Would you stop by my site and let me know what you think? I am learning as I go, and I really would love to hear your thoughts!

Thanks for journeying with me!

And do tell me, as a stay at home mom, what re ways you find yourself being creative?

(Linking up with Gypsy mama for 5 minute Friday, where you write for 5 minutes, no editing, just write. Today's theme is RISK, which was timely considering today is the day I launched my site)


  1. I like the new site! It's very well-organized. I did wonder where you are located (if I were to ask you to speak at a MOPS group or something).

    I'm a little lost for ways to express my creativity or purpose in my life as a SAHM right now. I'm hoping that this summer will give me the chance to regroup and refocus.

    1. Deborah, thanks for noticing that, great point!

      I do hope you do find the time to refocus, I think that is what is hard, finding the time (and for me sometimes the motivation)

  2. Ellen, great job on the website! I really like it a lot. I've already checked out your "Writing Prompt" tab and would like to participate in that because it sounds like a lot of fun and would help keep me writing on a regular basis.

    I do believe that this was well worth the risk. Congratulations! :)

    1. Thanks Sabrina, I do hope you join me on Mondays!

  3. Putting yourself out there and aspiring to be a career writer is definitely a risk. But, I totally share that dream with you! Good luck in your endeavor!

    1. Thank you, maybe you too will want to join us on Monday for a writing prompt so we can all work on the craft together :)
