I've been "Peggy" and "Betty" in one lifetime.

Running Mother's Day posts all of May at Mother Writer Mentor. Today's post is a beautiful mother daughter adoption poem by Jayne Benjulian, Winter. Looking for ongoing guest posts, post-Mother's Day reflections too.

Hi all. Sorry for the cross-post, but I'm passing along an offer of free advanced reading copies of my book (about being an American feminist academic who becomes an illiterate Japanese housewife & mother) that my US publisher, Putnam, has allowed me to share. More info is here. Thanks, and best to all!

Going through an intense time with my 14 year old daughter; leaning on the Tarot for support at Tarot for Two. The blindfolded woman in the 8 of swords is how I often feel with her:

Hi Everyone!

Happy Monday :)

I'm new here and I've spent the past hour scrolling through and reading the articles posted here. So great! I'm a designer by trade but have been writing a lot more lately for my business. I've always liked to write, but have found it difficult to come up with ideas. I am looking forward to coming back to this site for inspiration!

I also run a website,, a site to empower and inspire creative moms.We interview and feature a creative mom every week as well as offer stories and advice for and from moms doing creative work. We're now accepting submissions on articles that address topics at the intersection of creativity and motherhood. It can be a previously posted work, as long as you give us permission to repost it. And all rights remain with you, the author. If you are interested in inspiring other creative moms, please see more and submit here. Look forward to hearing from you!

"Here's a question for you, Brooke. On average, how much time, how many hours, does SPW spend editing - Developmental editing and Copy editing - the books that it publishes?"

"Thanks for your response, Brooke, and for clarifying. it's very difficult to self-judge ones own work/grammar. Even the best of writers cannot. And that assumes that all indie writers know all the rules of grammar and punctuation, which is a…"
