Summer 2016

Hi, and thank you for visiting Laurie Prim, where I just celebrated my first birthday. First website birthday, that is; I’ve got a few more than that under my belt, obv.

It’s been an awesome year of reading, writing, raving, and reproductive supporting & advocating, which is essentially what you’ll find here. I write Women’s Fiction, Chick Lit, and Memoir, and love to talk about all kinds of books and writing. I struggled mightily with miscarriages and IVF and, in part through my writing, I hope to help increase awareness of these issues and offer support to others going through this life crisis.

 

I’m still—painfully-slowly still—editing my memoir, What Didn’t Kill Me, which may end up being two books. The process has largely gone from feeling unable to cut the fat to trying to implement the huge amount of knowledge and feedback I’ve acquired in the past year into every chapter, scene, word. Which is, of course, the work of a writer, and I love the process, so it’s not a complaint. It’s just hard to remain patient with the pace that results from squeezing it all in, as so many writers do, between a day job and young children and everything else. And why do we always dream that we’re going to get more done in summer? Not!

You can also connect with me on Facebook and Goodreads, and hopefully, maybe, possibly, thinking about Instagram one of these days soon too.

Happy Summer from broiling but air-conditioned Florida! 

 

Cheers,

Winter 2016

Hi, thank you for visiting Laurie Prim, up and running for about 6 months now, woo hoo! I hope you will join me here for some reading, writing, and raving, as well as reproductive advocacy and/or support. (And because I tried to resist, but failed, some baseball!)

I write Women’s Fiction, Chick Lit, and Memoir, and love to talk about all kinds of books and writing. I struggled mightily with miscarriages and IVF and, in part through my writing, I hope to help increase awareness of these issues and offer support to others going through this life crisis.  

I am still working out some kinks on the website, including getting periodic notifications out to subscribers (I will not deluge you!), so please do subscribe over there to the right, and I will make it happen soon. Writing is hard. But not as hard as maintaining a website when your skill set for doing so is, shall we say, wee? But I will get there, and look forward to being a resource for some great book discussion, for hope and encouragement, and for some laughs.

You may also visit me, among other places, on Facebook (something I never thought I would say, never mind embrace). I am so grateful to have found some truly amazing writing and reproductive communities there and would love to see you there too.

Happy “Winter” from Sunny Florida! 

Cheers,

Laurie  

 

Summer 2015

Hi, thanks for visiting Laurie Prim! I hope you enjoy browsing and will join me in some reading, writing, and raving (and you can definitely throw some ranting in there, too, but it didn’t fit well in the tagline! 🙂 ). And don’t let the last name fool you; this is not your grandma’s website. Unless your grandma also prefers her reading, writing and raving with plenty of Sierra Nevada and the occasional F-bomb.

I write Women’s Fiction, Chick Lit, and Memoir, and love to talk about all kinds of books and writing. I struggled mightily with miscarriages and IVF and, in part through my writing, I hope to help increase awareness of these issues and offer support to others. Other issues I am interested in and will pop up here from time to time include mental health and homelessness.

I’m just getting going with the site and my blog so I hope you’ll forgive any temporary snafus and check back frequently for lots of new stuff. Please take a sec to join my mailing list on the right over there, I’ll send periodic updates!

Cheers,

Laurie 🙂
