Babies and Books

I haven’t posted for a while—I’ve been working hard on this new novel, and three essays under contract. And also—I’m pregnant! Due at the end of December. (This explains my dwindling postings…I guess there are some women who are able to grow babies in their stomachs, take care of toddlers, write books and essays and also find time to steadily update their blogs and websites…but, alas, I don’t think I’m one of them.)

Also, lately I’ve been overtaken by the weird nesting instinct that always sets in during pregnancy, this primal urge to clean and organize everything, or, as my friend Elizabeth explains it, to fluff up the leaves in the cave. (That explains why the Container Store is always packed with pregnant women. They should provide a shuttle service straight from the OB’s office.)

More soon!
