Bird NestWhen I’m severely stuck, which is a state I’m living in far too often these days, I follow the advice to look for my material in my obsessions, gripes, fears. A huge gripe is the condescending things some mothers say to me when they discover I chose not to have children.


Working Title: Mommifying
1st Sentence: “You will never know real love,” she warned me.
Favorite Sentence: If “good” is condescending, if “good” is thinking you know what’s best for a woman you barely know, if “good” means you learned how to apply makeup in and oil-painting class, then, yes, you’re good, you’re very, very good.
Word Length: 426
