What tips would you give a mom who wants to write a book?
I think the best thing to do when writing a book is to never say "no" to any idea that comes to your mind. Write it all down - no matter how wild it may seem. Then when you find an idea that strikes a chord with you, write and write and write about that subject until you can't write any more. You can put things in order later, just be sure to capture every thought that may fly away if scrutinized.
