Okay, so another post about mother’s day, and before you start scratching your head, or banging it up against the wall, let me break this down for you (I mean the Writing Prompts bit).
As a writer, or a person in general, it’s suggested that you write 30 minutes a day, at a minimum, doing this will improve your writing skills, and inevitably, good writing will almost certainly score you high marks in life (More than ‘X’, or knowing how to stop a Nuclear Reaction has helped me in mine). That being said, it’s always hard to knock out some writing on super busy days, more specifically, Holidays.
So that being said, I figured that most people are usually in the Holiday spirit, whether it be Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas, National Donut Day, or NanoWrimo (all of which I have failed at somehow, consectuively, for fifteen years in a row).
So why not keep the spirit up, and drop you a few Writing Prompts for mother’s day, because you can write more than your favorite memories with your mom (even though she is pretty great).
So here’s 5 writing prompts for Mother’s Day….
1. Super Mom
Turns out your mom has a secret history.
She was a secret-agent-super-hero (which means if your like me, the apple fell from the tree, rolled over, got hit by a car, proceeded to pass go without collecting two hundred…), or was, but she gave that up to raise you. But recently things have gotten bizaar, and the old organization your mom used to work for has called her back in to save the world. Unfortunately, she’s not suppose to let you out of her sight because you have a tendency to do really stupid things (that finger-in-the-socket ordeal really made her nervous), so you have to tag along.
Is your mom going to save the world?
Will you or someone else be her epic sidekick (your overachieving sibling…perhaps)?

———What’s great is I had a dream that my mom saved our town, with Scooby Doo, when I was eight, and I still remember how awesome I thought this dream was.—————-
2. A biography
Seriously, how well do you know her mom?
What was the best experience before she had you?
What was her life pre-mom-hood?
Does she have any regrets, or advice to give you?
Jot this stuff down.
Life Lessons from Mamma, and you might find out more than you intended.
——–My families always been open, my parents are firm believers of not having secrets. It really makes you think about your mom way past what you remember, and usually their lives are way more cool than we realize.———-
3. Detective Mom
Recently some mishaps have been happening in your life, and suddenly your blamed for a crazy crime that makes no since, and unfortunately, P.I’s are really pricey.
So who does that leave to do some awesome Detectiving?
Your Agatha Christy loving mom to become a detective, and get you out of the mess your in.
The question is, who dunnit?
Will you make it out alive?
And what is with the crazy squirrel that keeps following you all around?
Seriously, it’s creeping me out, someone get rid of it.
4. Go full on heart-felt.
Write a letter to your mom, and pour your heart and soul into it. You don’t have to tell her everything, but let her know how much you care, and don’t just make it because your trying to be a nice, civil person.
Make it because you love your mom, and nine-times-out-of-ten, they actually do care.
(My mom has two letters in her purse, and probably over twenty scattered about so she can look at them when she wants).
5. Write about your favorite memory of your mom.
It sounds clique, but it’s not.
We don’t know how long we have with our parents, and maybe you get annoyed with them, but don’t let those happy moments leave your mind, or pass you by.
—–This got odly serious toward the end. But seriously, this is something important to remember. Our moms went through alot to have us. Whether your adopted, this is for a mom-figure, or your biological mom, remember that mother’s day is about thanking her. It takes alot to love with your whole heart, forgive on a whim, and trust someone even a little, and that’s what a mom does, even when we cause them pain.—–
And that’s all the prompts I have, because I hate writing things on this phone, because I’m so accustomed to the computer keyboard.
Also, I feel like something was wrong with that previous sentence.
Anyway, stay tuned for more mom’s day-themed-blog posts, thanks for reading, and make sure you drop a comment down below telling me your plans for mother’s day, and your favorite memory of your mom.
