Another Sunday in which I participate in David Abrams’s “Sunday Sentence” project, which asks others to share the best sentence(s) we’ve read during the past week, “out of context and without commentary.”
No one ever says, “Hey, if you’re a full-time accountant having kids will prevent you from being a full-time accountant.”

(I’ll stick to the “without commentary” precept for the moment, but may have more to say about this series and the whole question of “balancing” writing with other commitments–family and beyond–another time. For now, I’m just grateful for the sage comments Bucknell offers in this interview. They’re oh-so-refreshing.)
