My Mom is the Awesomest! So, I wrote a story about her…
The wonderful folks at Chicken Soup for the Soul chose my story “An Ordinary Life” for publication in an upcoming anthology. I’ll have a press release and everything! Stay tuned for more but here’s a sneak peak at the cover.
Have you considered submitting to Chicken Soup? They always have projects in the works. I’ll do an update on the submission and selection process as the release date approaches. Sign up here for updates!
And in other news… I submitted an essay for consideration to Listen to Your Mother – Chicago 2015. I received an email saying that my essay had been selected for the audition process. Yikes! I’m nervous but excited to give it a shot. Live Lit is intriguing for so many reasons. You can read about one of Chicago’s best performers/ producers here. Auditions are in the next two weeks. Fingers crossed!
Whatever your inspiration, you can use what you’re writing to pay tribute, have fun or even to ham it up on stage. How has your mom (or dad, sister, uncle) inspired you?
