Happy Mother’s Day to all the mom bloggers out there celebrating. You Brits have already done so in March!
A word prompt to get your creativity flowing this weekend. How you use the prompt is up to you. Write a piece of flash fiction, a poem, a chapter for your novel…anything you like. Or take the challenge below – there are no prizes – it’s not a competition but rather a fun writing exercise. If you want to share what you come up with, please leave a link to it in the comments. Boy, did Sammi ever go digging for this one! Heck, WP doesn’t even recognise the word!

Still not a mother.
I feel like a solitudinarian ~ not physically ~ I am surrounded by loved ones
but in my heart. I might as well be elsewhere, alone

I am still a mother.
