Saddle up the horses....I'm going on tour!

So that title doesn't really make sense. But it sounded good in my head. And to be honest, well... I am super excited to have been invited to take my (self-proclaimed) fan-tabulous blog on tour! So I may be a little bit loopy!
I even took the time to make my OWN someecard to announce it instead of Googling someone elses! (I know, right?! That is pretty BIG! And it IS a great someecard!)

But before I get started about me, let me introduce you to the awesome blogger who invited me: Lisa from Petty Thoughts who blogs about all kinds of ramblings, all while wearing yoga pants, holding (and talking to) her cats, and delighting in embarrassing her teenage son. She's a multi-tasker. And pretty dang funny.
Go check out my favorite post of hers: Metallica keeps me from viciously pinching my loved ones. BUT NOT YET! First read about me! It is MY tour, after all!

First things, first- you know you wanna know ALL about me! (Or maybe that is all just in my head...but hey, it's my blog, so I am going with the first one) 

Let me go ahead and satisfy your curiosity. 

What am I working on?
Weeeeell, I am currently going to town on a blog all about my great-ness as a writer. Too bad nobody else has realized it and offered me a big book deal. huh. Somebody better get on that real soon. But, in the meantime, I will continue to write tid-bits about my life as a mom of seriously dramatic daughters. And one poor teenage boy who lives in a sea of estrogen. And whatever else tickles my fancy that day. A bug has been planted in my ear about writing a book of "Brennan quotes" so I have been playing around with that option (in my head...but we all gotta start somewhere!) as well. We shall see where life takes me...

How does my work differ from others of it's genre?
I started out writing the funny things my youngest daughter said to me on my personal facebook page and it became so popular that when I was encouraged by a friend to "blog" them, I created a facebook page called A Day in the Life of a Drama Queen's Momma as an outlet. Since I am social media stupid, it took me a while to start blogging, but I am (kinda) getting the hang of it now. I would like to think that my natural sarcastic wit shines through in all that I write. I am not sure if that is different from any other over-worked, under-paid, snarky mom....but I do a lot of writing about my kids and as far as I know...they are only mine and not double-timing me with some other momma, so that makes my stories unique. And if they ARE double-timing me, I really should be using that time to write more!

 Any volunteers?

Why do I write what I do?
I love my kids. They make me laugh. When I am not wanting to strangle them. (<---that's a joke, before you get your tights in a tangle) So I write mostly about them, as a way to remember the hilarious moments later, since I have the memory of a 90 year old alzheimer's patient. I occasionally write about other things, mostly things that I find humorous. I love to make people laugh. 

And I am a bit of an attention whore. 

Well, at least I can admit it.

How does my writing/creating process work?
I know all you other writers are probably going to smack me for this, but MOST of the time, the words just flow from my mind through my fingertips onto the screen. I have always enjoyed writing, but never really paid much attention to it. When I have something to write about, it just bubbles out. Now, when I am under pressure or told exactly WHAT I need to write...then I find myself staring at a blank screen. And it never fails, that most of my great ideas come when my kids are being the most demanding and I can't get them down on paper. So I have started jotting notes in my phone and hoping that I can remember what my train of thought was when I have a chance to sit down with them. I have lost more totally awesome blog posts that way! So for now, I am mom during the day and writer after bedtime.My poor husband! I just keep bribing his compliance with dreams of becoming rich from my first book deal. (Shhhh! I am ok with his ignorance!)

And that's it folks! Now you know a little bit about the momma behind all the drama on this blog. Probably more than you wanted to know...but oh well! No take backs. 

Now take a minute and stalk a couple of MY favorite blogs:

First up, Tracy On The Rocks. She is a lover of both cocktails and funny movies. And she does a great job weaving stories out of her "rocky life". Besides, her mom says she's funny and that is really all that matters, right?! I also have to point out that we share the same name (only mine is spelled with an "i") so that automatically makes her cool in my book! But her blog post A Little Piece of Me Dies Every Time I Get a Voicemail was the quencher that did it for me! If you EVER ignore your need to read this post!

And lets not forget, My Dirt! She is a tattooed lover of lists who has 4 daughters and aspires to be on the Ellen Degeneres Show (well, who doesn't?!). She is a fellow karaoke queen who blogs about all things dirty. And by dirty, I mean her life with kids, not get your head outta the gutter! Here's some dirt that I think you would enjoy: How To Be A good Neighbour
