Stay Quirky is taking a break. In the midst of designing and implementing evaluations, re-vamping programs and goals, and just dealing with life, the time to write has completely dissipated.

I hope to be back at it soon.

In the interim, I recommend you head over to Monday Coffee, a new blog page featuring stories from other moms of quirky kids.  In the not-too-distant future, they will be announcing the publication of a new anthology, Monday Coffee and Other Stories of Mothering Children with Special Needs.  It is a varied collection of essays and poetry revealing the experiences of moms who are raising, loving, and advocating for their children. A project of the Indiana Writers Center and INwords Press, profits from the sale of the book will support the Memoir Project at the Center.

A couple of my pieces will be included in Monday Coffee, and I am so grateful for the opportunity to be in the company of so many fine parent-authors. I will announce the launch here as well – it should be coming soon!

Stay Quirky, my friends.

UPDATE:  Monday Coffee is now available! I am humbled to be in the presence of these other mothers – their work is amazing – please check it out!
