Friday Prompt: Mothers
Read this on galpod.com.
A lot of what I write is about my motherhood. The first book I wrote (currently titled The Mommy Manual) is about being a new mom and is largely based on my experiences (although it is, of course, fiction).
Lately, I’ve been thinking about my relationship with my mother: her role in shaping who I am, the things I have forgiven her for and those I haven’t yet, and the things I’m grateful for her doing. In addition, mothers have a special place in society, and for a good reason: we literally make sure humans continue to exist as a species.
With that in mind, I invite you today to examine your motherhood concept, whether you are a mother yourself or not. What does it mean for you? Start with a five-minute free writing session where you just throw whatever pops into your head onto the page. Then you can choose something and dig deeper.
Hey there! I would love to hear whatever you’re willing to share that came from the prompt. Please comment below or click on the chat window, even if it’s only to tell me that you’ve found this prompt useful (or ridiculous).
