Okay, first I have to share the big news: The Other Mother will be in Redbook's September 2007 issue, as the Redbook Book Club Editor's Choice.
There'll be an excerpt, a picture of the jacket, and if you stop by New Jersey, me, grinning wildly. Thank you, Random House folks, and thank you, Redbook!
Second, now that the jumping up and down is over (I really should've gone to the gym today...too much diffuse energy), on to the part I came here for...
To provide a new writing topic for the week:
Read over the writing practice guidelines first, then pick your favorite, or your least favorite, to try to really honor as much as you can.
Then write for seven minutes on: a time you made a mistake, but didn't want to admit it.
Can't wait to hear your stories! I know at least a few of you are off at beaches, writing in notebooks. Kudos to you, and enjoy summer!
