Voila! I come home one day and magically have another publication to my credit!
Okay, that’s not quite true. Lots of work involved, but all completed some time ago, and mostly forgotten in the daily hustle and bustle that followed. So it does feel like a little like magic.
For those who are curious, this is indeed the story that was a bit too bleak for another publication. And no, it didn’t really change much in the bleakness factor. See what you think. I for one thought it was a tough, honest look at a tough situation, one which I can relate to. If it turns out no other moms can, well, perhaps I’m in the wrong line of work.
