A sampling of blog posts from Literary Mama editors and friends
… or in other words: blog posts that have pulled me away from my own writing because they’re instructive, informative, interesting, or IMHO, just a plain ol’ good read…
I hope you enjoy them as much as I did and if so, please consider following or subscribing to the individual blog(s). That way, you won’t miss any posts and you’ll help build his/her readership.
At Brain, Mother, the blog for Brain, Child Magazine: In Here Comes Trouble, Francie Arenson Dickman laments "the days when a parent can keep a finger on the pulse by simply pressing an ear against a bedroom door" but is determined to maintain a sense of what's going on in her daughter's life. In Proud Enough to Bust, Adrienne Jones chronicles her son's journey from public school to homeschooling to private school and a successful graduation from elementary school.
At Motherlode, the parenting blog for the New York Times: Nicole Kear is slowly losing her eyesight but doesn't let that slow her down in Mother in the Dark.
At GalleyCat: Check out this interview with author Elizabeth Gilbert, and in particular, her response to "what's the best way to self-edit?"
And from your Literary Mama editors:
The Summer List. Creative Nonfiction Editorial Assistant Melinda Copp created this list of things to do with her children. Have YOU made a similar list?
