7 Questions with #Author Carin Kilby Clark - #Parenting #NonFiction

How do you work through self-doubts and fear?
The way I deal with self-doubts and fear is to first acknowledge it. You can’t address the issue if you are trying to pretend like it doesn’t exist. After I admit to myself that I’m having doubts, and that I’m afraid of taking the next step or what might happen next, I take out a pad and pen and write it all down. Every single thought – the bad, ugly, and truly terrible – and for every negative thought, I develop a positive alternate. I then read the positive thoughts aloud and practice envisioning that reality. That’s what helps me to accept my new thought pattern.

What makes you happiest?
I’m happiest when making my family proud and spending time with them. When I was growing up, my family was very close – and we still are. So, when I created my own family that value has been the true foundation that guides my purposeful actions geared towards fostering that strong family bond with my children. Some of the best times of my life are when we are all hanging out and acting silly together. It’s the greatest feeling in the world.

Why do you write?
I write to share my experiences and to hopefully help at least one person feel less alone. I receive so many positive comments and emails with readers who tell me how my stories have helped them and how they can relate. That is the reason why I write. It’s all about my readers.

What writing are you most proud of?
The writing I’m most proud of is a piece I wrote for the Huffington Post, Motherhood Did Not Change Me, It Made Me – of which an expanded version also became a part of the motherhood anthology New Life Within. It was such a personal piece about my experience with motherhood and how it shaped the person that I am today.

What are you most proud of in your personal life?
I’m most proud of the great example I have set for my children. As a single parent who first became a mother at the age of 17 and is divorced, there are many reasons why life could have gone a different way. But I never let my circumstances hold me back. Or determine what I was capable of achieving. I already see this same value at work within my children. And that makes me so very proud.

What genre of books do you adore?
I adore transformational books. I am a huge fan of continuous evolution. I look back, even a year ago, and I can see how much I’ve grown and changed. I love to read books that have advice, strategies, and tips on how to make the transformations in your life that are necessary for continually growth and self-development.

Where do you get your inspiration?
I get my inspiration from life. From actually living – experiencing various situations and interacting with people. I write about what I’ve dealt with personally, so my writing is always inspired by my life.

Do any of these excuses sound familiar?

I'm just too busy
I have too much on my plate
There's never enough time
I have to do it all
I don't know how to manage it all
