Mothers Who Write

From Nina Schuyler (italics are mine):

Writer's Block Remedy: "One terrific benefit of having a child is that you don't suffer from writer's block. Writer's block is a phenomenon for those with ample time and a proclivity for channeling the voice of their high school teacher who said they’d never ever be a writer."

This reminded me of my second grade teacher, who told me that I'd never learn the English language because I had one foreign parent (oops) and the college professor who told me to give up writing and to discontinue graduate school because my future lay in teaching high school.
