The Love/Hate Relationship of Co-Sleeping

When my first daughter was born, over 10 years ago, she was born at only 33 weeks. She'd been in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) for over a month before she finally got to come home. Because of that, she'd developed the habit of waking up every 3 hours during the night for a feeding, as the hospital had required of her.

Who's really writing the story? The fiction you or the non fiction you..

Can writers have relationships too? Of course they can. We see many writers who maintain healthy relationships that have become lifelong commitments with an added value of experience as well as excitement because of their creative abilities. At the same time, the trials that the writers face in relationships seem to be much of the same across the board. Not so much with regard to their need to stay up late and write during the times that everyone else is asleep or the mental/physical spaces that they need to go to in order to focus on their next masterpiece....more
