10 Reasons Why a Writer’s Mother is Special #mothersday #writers #SundayBlogShare

Happy Mother's Day


  1. They truly believe that you are one day going to be the next J.K. Rowling.
  2. They listen intently to your stories.
  3.  No matter how dire your work sounds they always give you praise.
  4. They encourage you to read and love books.
  5. They tell you not to give up on your dreams.
  6. They listen to you sob and wail at the end of the phone when someone has told you something about your writing that you didn’t want to hear.
  7. They ask how your writing is coming along even when you would rather talk about the weather / avoid the subject of your work at all costs.
  8. They never think your stories are naff. They always find something positive about them even when you are groaning with your head in your hands.
  9. They will buy your book, even if no one else will.
  10. They always laugh at your jokes if you write comedy stuff. Even when no one else does.

Happy Mother’s Day to all out there.

I am dedicating my post to my Mum, Susan, who is my biggest fan and will buy my book, even if no else does. Sigh! That’s one guaranteed future sale. At least I will be able to say ‘someone bought it!’ – lol!

  1. Mine, dear old thing, used to tell everyone ‘he writes’ in the same voice that she used to say ‘he’s done a no 2 in th potty’ a mix of pride and awe. This long before I had acknowledged to anyone I was trying to sculpt a book

  2. Yep, so true! My poor mother reads every single draft of my manuscripts from the first to the last page without complaint.
    By the way, you totally have another sale here. No doubt. 😊 Happy Sunday!

  3. I have actually found this to be a misconception. She encourages me to write one thing one minute and another thing the next
