And numerous opportunities to support When We Were Mothers
Just read this, Nicci. Catching up on some emails. I am excited to support your work and will purchase your e-book version. I confess I am not usually (ever) a fiction reader, but I absolutely LOVE the "gray thinking" part of your story - and everything you write here, really - because it aligns so much with what real life is all about, anyway.
Pregnancy, or that space between knowing you're definitely NOT pregnant and then thinking you MIGHT be pregnant, is what I tend to call "the space between hope and fear." It's my definition of waiting in the tension for everything in life. I think you might have inspired me to write more on that for my memoir on motherhood, so thank you. :)
I can't wait to read your book. I will have to get it as soon as I can! I related so much to the beginning of this essay, I forgot where it was going! But then I couldn't wait to find your novel because it sounds so intriguing.
