So ... How's your journaling? Would you like to share an entry with LM readers?

Until December 7th, we'll accept responses to the For Your Journal writing prompts posted in September, October, and November. We'll offer our feedback on each response privately before the end of the month and post our favorites to the LM Blog. Please email your responses of 400 words or less to lmblogcontact (at) literarymama (dot) com with the words "For Your Journal submission" in the subject line.
