Today as I searched for a good topic to share with our readers my mind wandered to what it must be like for my children to see me working all the time. If I’m not writing, I’m organizing promotions, building covers, and extending my hand to others who need the support. I find myself working many hours a day. So, I asked my kids what it is like being the child of an author. Two small people with brilliant minds and two vastly different answers to the same questions.
The following is how the conversation/interview progressed. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
Son: I don’t know.
Question: What does an author do?
Daughter: An author writes a story so they can have a living. That’s what they do for a living. If they have children they feed and take care of the children.
Son: Making a book.
Question: Do you think an author has to make a lot of books?
Daughter: No, because if you have children who will you spend time with? That’s the problem.
Son: They should write as many as they want.
Question: What do you like about it?
Daughter: Sometimes you get to help them write.
Son: That I get to play minecraft.
Question: What do you dislike about being the child of an author?
Daughter: I don’t get to write when she grounds me off tech. (she’s also a published author)
Question: What’s the most fun about having mom writing from home?
Daughter: That she gets to see us.
Son: I like she can play with us, and help with homework.
Question: What do you want to do when you grow up?
Daughter: I don’t know yet.
Son: Make games.
As you can see, I’ve got a fantastic support and play system. I couldn’t be more blessed with inspiration than what I find within my arms every night and day. If you’d like to check out some of the projects that they have shared in inspiring you can find them on my Amazon Author Page, also on Nook, Kobo, and Eretailers worldwide.
