The title says it all I think, but Mother’s Day is coming, and Becca and I see this as our chance to celebrate all the awesome MOMS out there who work, raise families and pen magnificent stories, juggling their passions to do it all.
Social Media gives us a window into these writer-moms lives. On facebook and twitter, they post pictures of their families and talk about milestones and challenges. They lament about the struggles of writing and potty training (or teenager-rearing) equally, yet always make time to cheer us on and lend a supportive hand whenever we’re in need.
Bottom line here? We love moms! You love moms! So let’s band together and celebrate some of the very special moms we all know in the writing community!
TELL US ABOUT A WRITER MOM YOU KNOW, AND MAYBE WIN THEM A FEW BOOKS!
Up for grabs? One 3-pack of writerly goodness:
The Emotion Thesaurus (winner’s choice, print or digital*)
The Positive Trait Thesaurus (winner’s choice, print or digital*)
The Negative Trait Thesaurus (winner’s choice, print or digital*)(*Print copies are available inside the US, digital only outside the US)
So tell me…
Know a Writer Mom & want the world to know how awesome they are?
Just post a comment below, nominating them for this prize! If they have a blog or twitter, link to it so people can visit. But most of all, tell us why YOU care about this person, and what makes them so awesome! (And please, let them know about this contest so they can come and read all the nice things you wrote about them!)
So, is this easy-peasy, or what?
Enter as many Writer Moms as you like, just create a separate comment for each to make it easier for us to draw for a winner. Good luck! Contest is now closed.
Random.org Gods have spoken, and I am pleased to announce PK Hrezo’s Mom-writer nomination Karen Walker is our winner! Congrats to Karen, and thank you all for showering some of your favorite moms with love! I hope all the Moms have a great Mother’s Day! 🙂
