"Use Your Words: A Writing Guide for Mothers"

I'm excited to be featuring Kate Hopper's book, "Use Your Words: A Writing Guide for Mothers." As a busy mom and author it is extremely difficult to balance writing and life. While I type this post I can hear my 21mo talking to himself in his crib. He's supposed to be napping but obviously doesn't agree. So I'm torn, do I go and rock him or keep typing and pray he goes to sleep?
I just ran downstairs to check on the baby and we had a situation of stinky bum. Wow. Thank heavens I didn't just keep typing. I'm sure you all know exactly what I mean about finding the balance. Whether you are a writer or have other hobbies or talents you are trying to pursue it is hard to fit everything in (especially sleep, which I have almost given up on). This is why I love Kate Hopper's book, which focuses on writing the stories we need to write and how writing can be therapuetic. 

Today you get a chance to write a story of your own. Respond to the following writing prompt in 600 words or less and email your submission to me  before May 30th, camicheckettsatyahoodotcom. If your submission wins you receive a free copy of "Use Your Words" and consideration for the grand prize. At the end of the tour, Kate Hopper will choose the best piece for publication on Literary Mama the first week of June and Kate will award the winning writer a free hour-long phone consultation. (If you haven't been to literarymama.com, check it out. It is a lovely online magazine.)

Here's your prompt. Thanks for stopping by!


Motherhood Models
Take a few minutes and describe your mother. If you didn’t have a mother growing up, did someone else play a mothering role in your life? Describe her. Maybe you didn’t feel you had a “good” mother and maybe you didn’t know anyone who fit this description. So what would a “good” mother look like? How did/does this ideal affect your own parenting? How have you parented your own child the same or differently?
