1. Set a timer for 5 minutes. Writing without stopping, answer the next four questions:
2. When you think of your mother, what’s the first memory that comes to mind?
3. What was your favorite meal that you shared together?
4. List three of the gifts she gave you.
5. If there were something you could tell her that you haven’t, what would it be?
6. Put your paper away for a while. Then read aloud as if she were in the room. This can be a lovely experience and may give you story ideas!
I’ll be sharing my next free webinar: How To Use Screenplay Structure To Create The New Stories About Coping With The Pandemic next Thursday, May 21 from 7:00-9:00 pm EST via Zoom.
In this interactive webinar, you’ll learn to use screenplay structure to create new stories about your experiences with the pandemic, and apply the knowledge that you’ve gained by being stuck at home. You’ll also learn a foolproof way to structure a memorable story every time! I hope you’ll join me for this fun adventure. Be sure to have pen and paper at the ready! If you want to join please send me an email, and I will send you a link.

Finally, I want to offer condolences to the family of Terry Stanza, my long-term neighbor who recently died. I’ve known her for many years, and will miss her and her terrier, Reggie.
