Literary Mama writing about the many faces of motherhood
Writing Prompt: I Write in the Shower

No comments

In this month's "I Write in the Shower," Heidi Scrimgeour finds her loyalties stretched between mothering and writing.

Have you ever had an incident where your writing made you feel like a "bad" parent or person? Did you resolve the conflict? If so, how?


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.
