Stay focused when working at home

Did you know interruptions consume 28 percent of an average workday? It's true. And interruptions can be even more time-stealing if you're working from home and not setting limits. Case in point: The other day I was working from home. That's ...more

Running Away to Join the Circus

There comes a time, at least for people like me (if there are indeed, other people like me, which the jury is still out on), when you have to get creative about what you're going to do to pay the rent (and the cable bill, because, well, life isn't worth living without old movies, re-runs of reality shows, and the science channel). Because you know, not to be too gloomy or anything, life is short. Or at the very least, its length is unpredictable. ...more

Let me see your Writer's License, please

Maybe I skipped a day in my English Literature classes when they explained this one, but I was always under the impression that "poetic license" was just a turn of phrase, not an actual license. Turns out I was wrong: according to an article I just read on Writers Weekly, entitled "She's Got a License to Write," it seems you really DO need a license to write. ...more

About Time: A Reality-Tested Book on Breastfeeding

Books, like babies, take a long time to develop. My newest book, "Unbuttoned: Women Open Up About the Pleasures, Pains, and Politics of Breasetfeeding" took about 9 months to put together. And what an intense 9 months it was! I co-edited this anthology with my dear friend and writing partner of many years, Dana Sullivan. She, like me, is also a mom of three. After we wrote our first book, The Essential C-Section Guide, we wanted to follow-up with another title that took the same reality-testing approach on a mom-related subject. What better topic than breastfeeding! ...more
