13124754_10153655226223481_3523880265285130728_nHello! My name is Eleanor Mulder, and I’m a full-time mummy, part-time editor, and rest-of-the-time writer. I also have a day job. Phew!

When I’m not working or looking after my two crazy girlies, you can find me tapping away on my laptop, reading in bed, or hugging trees. I love trees🙂

I’d also really love to finish my novel at some point this century, but there always seems to be so much else to do!

However, despite choosing the most frantic time in my life to write a book, I’ve come to realise there really is no better time than now. Even if I write just one sentence a week, I will get there… eventually… I hope…

And there’s no turning back now — I’ve come too far.

So, I’d love it if you could hang around for a bit, have a read of my blog posts, find out about my book. I like to share:

  • the ups and downs of my writing journey;
  • my take on the world of writing and blogging; as well as
  • my day to day life and reflections

Thanks for visiting x

  1. Thanks for liking my Going YA post. How’s the writing going? Do you have regular times in the day you write? I try.. and then it fails… I’m always interested to hear how mums with small children manage to get any writing done. I’m not being that successful at the moment.🙂


    • Hello Sarah. It is very difficult, no denying that!! There are some days I don’t write at all, when things don’t go to plan, but usually I write during nap time (my eldest watches a movie while the youngest sleeps) and then in the evenings. I don’t watch TV. If I have an editing job to do, or if I’m really tired from having been up at night with the girls, or if I want to spend time with my partner, then the writing stops unfortunately. I don’t see it really being any different to someone who has a full time job really, except weekends are like weekdays and I’m always tired haha! On that note, I’m knackered at the moment, and I haven’t written on my novel for a week 😏 But just keep pushing a day at a time, an hour at a time. Things will get easier, but you mustn’t wait. Good luck x

  3. Hello 👋👋👋 I found you or your blog on dream big dream often, so I suppose I am a gatecrasher… *gulp* a nice one though. Pleased I am to visit and chat, I am writing in one form or another from 5.30 am until about eleven most days. Though I just last night returned from a two week break, I still scratched away each morning… but on paper. The husband called it my rehab. I wrote six chapters of a new project that I didn’t know was even lurking, but not a whisp of wi-fi or more than a bar on my phone didn’t hold me back. Now to tranfer and tweak it on tinternet and hope my mad foray with a brand new genre is as good as I think.

  4. Hi,
    Your children are adorable.
    Congratulations on being Danny Ray’s featured blogger. I was his featured blogger too. Maybe you can check out my site if you need blogging tip or two. That’s what I write about.

  6. Hi there! Thanks for following my blog. Always happy have another comrade writer on board! From what I’ve seen of your posts, you’re my kind of ‘writery’ girl!


    • Unfortunately I was interrupted and couldn’t continue to read through your posts, but especially looking forward the ‘cheeseburger’ one haha. Yes, it’s great to connect with other writers just starting out like me. Well done for taking the leap of faith, no matter what your age is. Me? I chose the most frantic time of my life. We must be crazy. Stay in touch🙂


  7. Eleanor, it is great to connect and I look forward to reading more of your work. Thanks for following my blog. I have been told that writing poetry is just lazy writing so I hope you enjoy the laziness🙂
