If you read the most recent post (before this one, that is), you know that there's a moms blog book group discussion of The Other Mother at the Silicon Valley Moms Blog.
They're discussing The Other Mother and the issues it raises for moms. If you want to joint the discussion, click through where it asks you to join in.
There are plenty of gems in the mine, so this week I'm asking you to dig for your own topic.
You could write about a dad who's staying at home. You could write about mommy guilt. You could write about a mom quitting her job to stay home. You could write about cultural differences in parenting, but don't get too academic.
Just pick something you read about, even a phrase from someone's post, or, hey, the title The Other Mother's something to work with. I'm suggesting this because I feel like digging for your own topics gives you new freedom as a writer.
Have at it! 14 minutes or 22 minutes, you choose. And I'd love to hear what you think of the book group, as well.
Sometimes I write mine out a month in advance in my dayplanner, brainstorming all at once about a novel I'm living, or just trying to find what's important, what's next.
Can't wait to read! And hope you all enjoy your little Halloweenies, the ones in your house, or the ones that come to your door...
