Who Is Cindy?
Cindy Vattathil is a mother of three and is, therefore, always tired. However, in between yawns, she tries her best to make art, read books and run a few laps.
To see what she can make out of tiny pieces of paper, check out www.paintingwithscissors.com.
As for her writing, stick around and see what pops into her head next!
Hey! How Did You End Up Here?
I know how I did...
I just love to write. Simple.
Ever since I was eight years old, I have wanted to be a writer. When I was a kid, I dreamed of sitting at a typewriter (yes, I'm that old) and plunking out the "great American novel."
In my 20s, I managed to get a few small things published (poems, articles, and an interview or two); but, now that the years have doubled, it's become obvious that somehow life has gotten in my way of my weightier hopes and dreams.
So, I haven't done it yet. I haven't written my novel. And frankly, quite often, I only find myself writing grocery lists and quick emails - this is how it goes for most moms. However, I'm not giving up yet.
I'm going to write that novel! One day.
Maybe all I need is the right audience (you!) to offer encouragement as I bumble along the way.
Let's see if I can make it happen before the years double again!
