Was it Gertrude Stein or Adrienne Rich who said, “A book is not a baby is not a book?”
Well this non-bio lesbian mom book is certainly not going to be a baby. And my embryo will hopefully not develop into a book in my womb. Yet they are related. At some point in my youth, probably when I was in college, I made a very short list of things I wanted to do before I die. I mean, life goals, not stuff like “ride in a hot air balloon over the mesas of New Mexico,” though that would be on my other such list.
Here’s my life goals list:
1. Have a baby
2. Publish a book
I’m feeling pretty jazzed that so many of you want to be interviewed and want to buy the book. It has really jump started me into action.
Now I just need to purchase a device that will record phone interviews and some index cards and we’re off!
