Ann L. Carter writes for us today at Mother Writer Mentor about her process of writing Spiders From Heaven: A Poetic Journey into Middle-Aged Motherhood as she raised her two adopted daughters (China and Vietnam) as a single mother...just one word at at time, gathering journal entries, emails, notes in binders and culling from them. Writing My Way to a Journey of the Heart

Daughter Marlene Samuels, PhD, encourages us to write down our stories for our children, and equally as important, for the public record and to set the record straight. Here's how she persevered to get her mother's Holocaust Survivor story to print. It took 18 years, but it was well worth it. Interview is up at Mother Writer Mentor:

Motherhood is our common context in this group. Lyz Lenz wrote an excellent post on The Rumpus which sparkedmy response here.

What context do you write from? Does it shift, depending on your project? But, like Lyz, the context of motherhood is a permanent state of being. I'd love to hear your thoughts. xoS

My latest book is a photo collaboration: 52 weeks in the life of the kids on our street in Maine. 52 photos and 52 stories. It traces the year in the life of kids and celebrates motherhood. Stop Here This is the Place: A Year in Motherland is out now and will be featured in Real Simple and Downeast Magazine in May. So grateful to you all for any support you can give the book.

BUZZFEED gave my forthcoming novel a shoutout. Which makes it all worthwhile. I cried every day at my computer. Still much help needed in the tsunami-affected areas, and we are doing what we can.

Three poems for survivors, especially mothers who are survivors. I wrote poems about going into labor triggered in my first poetry collection. Thanks to Ginny Lee Taylor at Women of Wonder, guest blogged here: Words as Spiral Path: Owning My Story. Writing exercises at post's end. Would love your comments on the site. Ginny is doing powerful work.
