Author Highlight: Dolores Mitchell

Children often question their purpose in life, especially if they are dealing with older siblings who take away attention from them. As a parent how do you talk with your little ones about this very sensitive subject? You could sit down and talk about what role they play in the family and how important they are to the family. Perhaps you could show them, after all actions speak louder than words. My guest is author Dolores Mitchell and she has created a wonderful story that points…

Links You May Love

I have spoken with several aspiring writers recently and the consensus is that they feel overwhelmed and lost.  The questions of where to begin and how to write a query letter are frequent.  I have also heard the question regarding how to pitch an idea to a magazine without having any clips.  Breaking into a career as a freelance writer can be daunting.  I am lumping myself in with the pack of people who dream of the day where writing is their sole career and a profitable one at…

For me, social media is just another place to chat about writing and books - and stay in touch

I was reading a few funny blog posts the other day from writers who were getting a little frustrated with social media.

They didn't want to blog or tweet or Skype or sell - they just wanted to write. And while their comments were funny, they were serious.

I could relate. While most of the time, I'm very enthusiastic about blogging…

Blogs... A Love/Hate Relationship

The plethora of information you can find on the internet is nothing short of amazing. I find myself using the internet for researching, shopping or simply just having fun viewing websites that peak my interest. Long gone are the days of the World Book Encyclopedia and other print publications I remember using for my school book reports. The library in our town doesn’t even carry half the books I am looking for because the amount of visitors they used to get have dwindled as have the number…

I Wish I Lived...


I thought this was a fun writing prompt.  I have always believed I was born in the wrong era.  Don't get me wrong, I love living in the USA.  I love all the comforts of electricity, inside plumbing, and having a Walmart just down the road.  Oh and don't forget the automobile to get me back and forth to Walmart. :)  But there are times when I wish I lived in a different time period.

When I was a young girl, I used to spend many hours in the library reading.  Some of my…

Who are we blogging to anyway? Is anyone out there???

I love the blogosphere, and since you are reading this, it is safe to assume that you do too!  Blogging is a terrific way to have a discussion with perfect strangers about topics that bring us together.  Perfect example: here we are at MomBloggersClub.com. . . we are all here for one reason: we are mothers seeking information, wanting to share…

Labels, labels everywhere!

A guest post by Amanda Lehrman from The Momma Files. Amanda Lehrman has a background in education and is a mother to her son Jack. This is her final post in the September Education Series as a guest writer for Mama Tales. With the various spelling strategies taught in school, many parents struggle with which one to use at home. Some of you tell your child to sound out the word, some say to look it up in the dictionary or refer to spell check on the computer. I believe that a combination of…

Amanda Lehrman has a background in education and is a mother to her son Jack. Please check back here next Monday for her last post of the September series on tips to prepare your little ones for school.

Writing is funny. There are so many rules to follow, lines to stay in and utensils to use. It's all very technical, especially to a child. In my opinion, it is too technical. By the time we… Continue

Guilt -- It's A Bitch Alright


Kids sure have a way of (figuratively) punching you right in the gut when you least expect it, don't they?  Their unassuming words can wash a blanket of guilt right over you in nothing flat.  And before you know it, you're feeling like the suckiest parent in the world and saving your pennies for the future therapy that your kid will inevitably need thanks to…

A (Very) Short Story By My Son

(This story must be prefaced with the fact that it was nothing short of a miracle to get my son to write anything in school at all.  His poor teacher had to practically hypnotize him to get any kind of writing topics to emerge from his little brain.  So yeah, this story's about a giant turd, but hey, at least the kid wrote a story, right??!!)

Online Inspiration...and Envy

Seven years ago someone mentioned 'weblogs' and I winced. Why would someone want to go and put their journaling thoughts online for all to see? Good god, what madness is taking over society? We left for Peace Corps in 2000 and returned to the rubbed-and-well-worn jeans look. Cell phones for everyone...and everywhere. And now, diluting of the web with weblogs?!

And then just five years later we welcomed our first child. We were living in the Bay Area and our family lived just far…

Hail to the Handwritten Note

By some standards, handwriting is already considered an “ancient” skill. Next thing we’ll know, it will be an extinct art form practiced by only a few artisans. Well, not in my lifetime if I have anything to do with it! These days, the charm of receiving a handwritten note is manifest (any handwriting will…
