no haiku today
a black hole British winter
has consumed all words

  1. Today brought more snow and a prose poem about being a full time parent while your friends get promotions and go clubbing to celebrate. Another one for the Novel Writing Winter.


    1. Good. I’m glad the prose poems are still happening. I’m sure many people will identify with the parent versus career conundrum. I gave up my fulltime career for parenthood when my daughter was four. Never regretted it for a moment. I took up childminding at home instead, so other parents could go out to work.


      1. I am struggling with it today. My job is the most fetid pile of fecal matter and I so much want to give it up and get a job which has meaning – the downside is I will get to see my daughter every other weekend. I think that might break me.


      2. Oh, dear. Poor, poor you. Are there no jobs that don’t involve weekends? Do you have transport, and, if so, could you stand doing an agency carer’s job? I think some of the agencies allow you to be quite selective about your hours. At least doing a job like that, people will appreciate you.
