Crumbs in the Keyboard: Courageous Women Juggling Life and Writing.
Today began no differently than any other, nor did yesterday end in a manner other than I expected, each day blending into the next, the only difference being the gratification I draw from the individual events. My life is a never-ending series of activities, an ever-growing list of to-do items that never seems to get a day off, much less a vacation, for even these days require lists and preparations.

The 411 on Misadventures of Moms (M.o.M.)
Had one of those moments? As a mother of an 8,7,3,2,and 1 year old, I feel your pain. My goal is to create, with my sisters in motherhood, a gift quality book that can be given to any mom and help her realize she’s not alone. We’re all constantly laughing (or crying) at our situations, but often have no other adult to share our stories with. Reading Misadventures of Moms (M.o.M.) will give moms an opportunity to reflect on the events of any day.
Re-live your funniest mom misadventure in descriptive and emotional words. As in, been there, felt that crazy!. Stories should be between 400 and 2,500 words in length. All stories must be true, but also hard to believe!
Misadventures of Moms chapter outline:
1. M.o.M. in the delivery room
2. M.o.M. with diapers
3. M.o.M. in the kitchen
4. M.o.M. during birthday parties
5. M.o.M. caring for sick kids
6. M.o.M. in stores
7. M.o.M. at holidays
8. M.o.M. in the laundry room
9. M.o.M in classrooms
Please email your submissions in the body of an email to:
Writers agree to allow Kerri Charette to use their work in an anthology after signing agreement form if their piece is selected for M.o.M. Of course contributors selected will get two copies of the book and bragging rights! Also, portion of any profit will be donated to Susan B. Komen Fund (I’ve done lots of work, but who am I to solely profit from my sisters’ writing?)
FYI: I already have many published authors on board, and just a few well-known parenting authors who are willing to review the work when complete! Most authors are using archived pieces and will retain all rights. Yay!
Deadline: Nov. 30, 2003
