It’s not the same as writers block.. lord knows I could write and ramble for days on end and never stop- it’s Book Block. Basically, organizational hell.
As I would think most of you know by now, I am in the process of writing a book. I wouldn’t say it’s a hard task, because I know sort of what I want to write and I have a bone structure laid out.. but as far as filling in some of the blanks and organizational skills, I am LOST!
I’m going to do something now that I don’t do very often, and that is to ask for HELP! I’m in desperate need.
Not that i’m going to post everything i’ve written already here.. I don’t want to give that much away! I will, however, let you know the basic premise of the book and ask for your input- because it isn’t just what I want to write, it’s what others want to read that makes a book a success.
The basic idea is my life as it coincides with this blog. Life as a mommy and a blogger, and all the things i’ve been through with this blog, because of this blog, and the best blogs- in chronological order. Obviously I can’t put in EVERY single blog, and I wouldn’t want to. It’s just too much day to day and filler blogs. I not only want to tell people what mommy blogging is like, and what they’ll face because of what they write if they choose to be as open as I have been- but I want to tell the stories behind some of the blogs i’ve written.
My problem comes in when I try to choose what blogs, choose what situations to write about, especially since i’m trying to keep them in order with the life stories I want to tell. Funny, crass, and serious- i’m putting it all in there.
The questions for all of you are these:
What blogs are your favorites?
What stories do you most want to hear?
If you’ve been reading the blog for long enough and know what i’ve been through- which blogs would you like to have explained more thoroughly (i’ve definitely been known to be cryptic at times)?
What do YOU find interesting as a parent to read about?
I want to know it all! I want opinions, suggestions, whatever you’ve got- lay it all out there!
Any input or insight would be much appreciated. I’m very excited to write the book and have you all read it once it’s done.. I just have to figure it all out, pick and choose, edit, write, and put it all together before that can happen.

I'm officially done parenting. Here's how I did it: holdinholden.com/2018/01/im-o…

Some people meal prep to be healthy throughout the week. Some people meal prep because they want to be lazy for the rest of the week. I meal prep to prove to my kids that humans CAN eat the same thing day after day without dying.
It's no secret that I hate the cold months- but I'm all about finding the silver lining. Here's a couple ways it ain't ALL bad. holdinholden.com/2014/02/5-12…
I have so many wonderful memories from my years as a parent, but my new favorite is my son gagging while cleaning up his own crusty pee from around the base of his toilet.
