If you're feeling overwhelmed at the thought of writing about your mother, this free course will give you more writing prompts and exercises to boost your confidence.
Unlike other courses, you won't be asked to work harder and learn more. You already know everything you need to start. These exercises are meant to cultivate your open heart and mind, to access the memories, vague thoughts, songs, scents and facts about the woman who happened to give birth to you.
Choose which questions you like and answer them (or not) in any order you choose.
Be prepared for mystery. If you're worried because you think you don't know anything about your mother, that in itself is a great story. What is it about your mother or her circumstance that kept details from you? Write about that.
People who think they know everything about their mothers are often startled to learn they still have questions. That's also part of the mystery.
Whenever you feel ready, write her story following the recipe.
If you have more questions or want to work with Marilyn Norry and a cohort of other students in a live situation, check out the classes listed in the other course. They are offered every month.
Live classes can also be arranged to fit with your time zone or a group of friends at a particular time.
Hearing the stories written by other people about their mothers is a moving experience. You will also see different ways mothers are described, perhaps find answers to questions you have about your own story.
Use the included Survey to ask more questions about either course.
Love to hear from you!
