|Darlings everywhere! Where's the meat?|
Making the right decision. The idea of seemingly selfish ambitions of a mother at odds with the demands of motherhood.
Taking the risk. The tension between being a responsible wife and mother to 5 children and a college student.
A sense of belonging. Feelings of being an outsider at college. It's not just the younger students who suffer from this. Older students can feel they are starting behind the traditional college students because of a lack of college preparation.
As my darlings lay, kicking and screaming on the library floor, I contemplate these questions and possibly redrafting my entire memoir. No one ever said writing was easy. And if they did, throw them on the floor with my kicking darlings.
Any insight you can offer, please do. Thanks for reading.
