I gave up novel writing when I had kids. I decided I didn’t have the time for long form writing. All I could handle was something that could be finished, finite, and not take years. So after four novels that never got good enough, I began writing humorous social commentary about life as a lesbian mom for GLBTQ publications back when same-sex parenting was a novel idea.
I consider that writing my apprenticeship.
