Writing Prompt: Being Called by the Dark
In this month's essay, Ginger Moran connects her passion for writing with the demands of parenting. She writes, "...I thought of how I carried him with me into my study--even when it was only in my imagination, while he was still sleeping in his crib. How, after he was born, I couldn't write a novel or an essay that didn't have a little boy in it. He was that much part of me."
What are you passionate about? What role does your family play in helping you meet this craving? How do you meet the demands of each?
