I don’t want to be a mom — is that wrong?

As far back as I can remember, I never wanted kids. I also never wanted to get married. I was going to spend my life free, unattached, and focus on my work as a writer.

But do you know, the work scared me. No, it terrified me. Still does. Good writing needs to come from the gut. But my gut is ugly (or so I think) and I’ve been hiding it for decades.
