Literary Mama writing about the many faces of motherhood
Writing Prompt: Green Means Go

No comments

In "Green Means Go," writer Terri Scullen Terri explores the sometimes frustrating, sometimes triumphant stop and start quality that motherhood has brought to her writing process. "I'm about to give up, toss the pages in the round file, say adios and sign off, when the powers that be take pity on me and hot flash, eureka, I'm gone: released at the keyboard into my make-believe world."

What do you imagine your most conducive writing situation would look like? In what environment do you feel like you've done your best and/or most creative writing? What are the most difficult circumstances you've ever written in? How do you get your own creative juices flowing?


Sarah Raleigh Kilts is a proud member of the amazing Motherlode Writers Group (I love you guys!). Her writing has been published in Common Ties. Following her passions led her to discover a new career that’s tons of fun — as an elementary school music teacher to 220 fabulous 3rd 4th and 5th graders she gets to share her love of music and world culture with a captive — though often wiggly and giggly — audience. She lives with her family in the San Francisco Bay Area and can sometimes be found (even on school nights!) performing in local watering holes plucking the bass and singing with her hubby Thom in their Indie Rock duo, Diablo’s Dust. Three of their albums are currently available on iTunes.
