For this author, creative endeavors have been sorely tested by motherhood. But also transformed, and in ways she wouldn’t have imagined – couldn’t have, without her life “rewritten” as it has been, by her children. So linger here, to read all things weaverly, writerly and motherly.

A-Z Challenge: U is for Utter

U is for my utter indebtedness to my fellow A-Z challengers for actually reading my alphabetical utteringsI hope I've gained a few new, even unwavering, unswerving followers.

After this challenge ends, I will resume my weekly Once-Upon-a-Tale Tuesdays


Except for exceptions, I post only weekly, not just because the vacuum beckons and I need to remember I have children, but because my habit is to rework my "Tales" as I would any manuscript for publication. 


Or maybe I'm just a middle-aged creature of habit; of letting my bathroom sink metabolize into a sloppy toothpaste mess; of allowing generations of dust bunnies to propagate like gerbils under our beds; of searching out, like a missing sock, the perfect word to match my meaning. But I am also a revisionist, as all I ever wanted was to be a writer (before I discovered weaving but that is for W).

So, today, in honor of the revision of otherwise mere utterings, please grab by Tale-Tues button code below so you'll remember to pop back weekly. I might even offer you too-strong cyber coffee in chipped mugs.

Really. Thank you for so many thoughtful comments. And I'm honored to have found some great bloggers to follow as well. You're a warm, good-hearted bunch. 

Now I must usurp this remaining moment before having to remember I have kids to feed, to revise my V....

Sounds like you to will be happy when A to Z is over and you can get back to a somewhat normal schedule. I have enjoyed visiting daily though. Thanks for providing me with quality, thought provoking daily reading, if only for a while.

Unswerving and Uttering reporting for duty!!!!
Nice U words going on - I was kinda worried about the U - turns out it wasn't so bad after all. Good old U - what were we worried about anyway?
Happy A to Z! Almost over! WOO -HOO!!!!

I know just what you mean! The writer within has a hard time posting silly stuff, but after working all day it is a feat just to type up a few words with some pretty pictures. :) Congrats on getting this far, and we are almost there!
