Do you keep a journal - or wish you could get one started? Literary Mama wants to help.
Three times a month, I'll post a writing prompt. Open a notebook and write for 10 minutes. Don't worry about grammar or punctuation - just write. Then let the writing simmer and your mind wander for awhile.
And who knows? Maybe you'll discover a character for your next short story or a theme for a narrative essay. Or maybe you'll use the idea to create a special holiday card or photo album for someone in your family. However you decide to use your journal entry, I know you'll enjoy re-reading it months--and years--down the road.
Consider the phrase, "You're just like your mother."
Journal Entry: Make a list of the qualities you admire in your mom. How has she influenced your life as a parent, partner, or spouse? Write a letter to your mom and send it to her. If she's no longer living, address the letter to your children and describe the role their grandma had in your life.
