I am lucky enough to write for an excellent magazine for Golden Gate Mothers Group. As my blog writing drops off (for years sometimes), and my business writing continues to be highly structured, this magazine offers a place where I can flex my creative muscle.
The October/November issue this month includes an I Heart Mom article that I wrote, “Seeing Ourselves in our Children”. This article was a challenge for me. I had to keep putting it aside, for weeks at a time. When I volunteered for this piece, I was certain I’d be able to roll 750 words that worked, that felt real. But after several attempts, with no real progress, I was stymied.
Luckily my writing coach jogged me loose. That and a trip to see family.
I believe this will be an article I’ll enjoy reading after a few years. To see if the origins of my first sons personality stay put as he grows from a toddler to a young boy and beyond. I Heart Mom – September 2017
