Okay, you guys, I have decided to do the JumpStartWriMo for the month of June. I am so excited to share this with all of you.
As you know, I have had trouble finishing/editing this story and I have two more I want to dive into. So, all this month I am going to have us state our goals for the month, provide motivation, guest authors, incentives, sprint writing, and more. Ms. Shreditor has said she will check in with us and offer help where she can and I'm really excited about some of the other guests I've lined up. I hope you'll participate and tell your friends. We're starting tomorrow!
I'd also like to tell you about a compilation of essays I just finished reading, "Musings on Motherhood" by Susan Law Corpany. You all know I'm the mother of eight and mothering for me is wonderfully chaotic. These essays are fun and touching, with some great insights into what motherhood is when you're in the trenches.
(Susan was a single mom, a stepmom, and a grandmother and shares stories from all those stages of her life.) Seriously, some of them are laugh out loud funny and some are so poignant, the emotion just jumps off the page. Well worth the 0.99 on Amazon. And while Mother's Day is over, it would still be a quick, fun read for any mothers that you know. Or for yourself.
Here's the back copy:
This humorous book about mothers in all their varieties is one woman's
journey from devoted daughter to loving mother to non-wicked stepmother
to well-intentioned mother-in-law to doting grandmother. Humorous and
heartwarming, like a warm fuzzy pair of slippers with a lollipop stuck
