  2. Looking forward to hearing about your new adventures! You ARE a talented writer! You should write books!
    I hope you finally get to settle down and grow roots. I know what you feel…I’ve moved around every 2-3 years of my entire LIFE. I’ve lived here in Virginia longer than anywhere else (since 2007) and even though I know this won’t be our last move, I THINK my youngest son will actually get to live here long enough to start AND finish highschool in one place! WOW! SO far he’s started AND finished middle school at the same school so we are ON A ROLL! This is huge!
    Good luck to you!…Oh, and a big CONGRATS to your hubby on his new job! That is so exciting!

  3. There’s more than a few ways to save the world. And I think you’re right. Many of them start with finding your own identity.

    This blog has so much potential and your voice is so authentic. Looking forward to reading!

  4. I dig the bio…made me laugh cause I totally get it. I appreciate that you say you have no credentials and yet here you are writing a blog. Takes guts! Also, my mom is awesome too – she’s one of three followers on my blog (one being myself…) Anyway, I’ll be following yours.

  5. Your best friend sounds like my best friend! I had a hard time with my bio for my website, but bfs speak from the heart, and they are usually right. I have been teaching English for twenty years (mostly community college) and it’s scary being on the other side of the desk. I just started a blog after taking two years to write a book. I know all too well the importance of an authentic “writer’s voice.” Look forward to reading more of your posts!

  6. Andrea, this blog is so awesome. I can’t wait to get my hands on, “what’s the big secret” and write about my experiences with that one. I’m a big believer in being as honest as possible with my kids and have been wondering how on earth I was going to explain to my 6 year old that he and his sister were born out of my twizzy! Thank you so much for sharing, I look forward to your future posts because I am just about finished reading the rest of them!

      1. Not yet, have ordered the book tho… We are hopefully coming to the end of a loooong postal strike here. Will definitely be writing about my experience once I have it.

    1. It means pretty much like what it sounds like – true stories told creatively. Or, according to Creative Nonfiction magazine, creative nonfiction is “true stories well told.” In other words, not just lists of facts or “this happened, then this happened,” but real stories with characters, dialog, setting, descriptive writing. Hope that helps!

  10. Andrea, I knew you were the maker of Sacred Suds, but I never knew you were such an accomplished writer! Remember me from HandmadeMN? I was impressed with you then and am astonished by you now. Hope you don’t mind if I follow along and keep getting to know you!

  11. Hi Andrea…Stumbled across your blog today and really enjoy your writing. I’m on the editorial staff of yeahwrite, which is a writing challenge site for writers who blog and bloggers who write. I hope you’ll consider submitting something — we have a competition in November with cash prizes (and chocolate and books). Here’s the link: http://yeahwrite.me/ Best wishes to you. — Meg

  12. You’re a woman after my own heart. I could have written your bio; I relate well to it. I would venture to say that most writers would say that it’s very difficult to get a compliment about their writing from those closest to them, let alone get them to read everything we create. That’s why we blog; so we can be in the company of others who need to blog. We acknowledge each other, give praise where it is due, and gently critique when necessary. I’m glad I found you – a kindred writer who NEEDS to write. I look forward to getting to know you better through your writing.

  13. I don’t quite remember how I got here but I relate. Flitting is my STYLE and I collected butterfly images to prove it. Not real butterflies as I want them to flit free. I have fewer credentials than you to write a blog. NO college at all. Shhh. It’s a secret. I like flitters. I made my son a flitter. I call it “ECLECTIC!” I’ll be by to read more and learn. This looks like a fun place to be.
