Do you have a story or poem about a mother? Biological mothers, adoptive mothers, step-mothers, mothers-in-law, grandmothers, some who has been like-a-mother etc…
In the May issue I will be featuring MOTHERS and submissions sent as soon as possible will be most appreciated.
Work from Mothers or about Mothers. Fact or fiction, tributes or comedy . . .
Stories should be up to 1000 words and poems up to one page and sent in hard copy to Positive Words magazine, PO Box 798, Heathcote 3523, Victoria, Australia.
A writing prompt for today…
Where would we be without them? In the last couple of weeks I’ve observed three generations of situations where true friends have supported others in need . . . I’m sure there must be a story in that :)
Today’s writing prompt:
Sometimes there is no right or wrong! But the decisions can be agonizing :(
Hope the prompt inspires a great story or poem.
A writing prompt for today:
It’s an ill wind . . .
Yes, it’s windy here and has been for several days :(
I can hear it now whistling around the corner of the house.
My apologies for the lack of writing prompts over the past weeks…I’ve had a break and will now endeavour to provide them at regular intervals again :)
Prompt for today:
I think I’m beginning to understand.
I hope it inspires some great poems and stories :)

Today’s writing prompt:
She slid her toes into the leg of her jeans and out ran a . . . spider!
Yes…it happened this morning :(
Okay, it was only the tiniest of spiders and didn’t cause any harm but I thought it would be a great writing prompt.
Imagine a HUGE hairy spider with big eyes and an evil grin . . .
And, remember after drying your jeans on a hot summer day . . . give them a good shake before putting them on :) Just in case!
