She said;

“My baby happened, and it’s important to talk honestly about this, because having her changed a lot.

“Having a child gets in the way of writing. It does. You can’t own your time the way you used to.“But the other thing that motherhood does — and I kind of feel sorry for men that they can’t have this — is open up a new emotional plane that can feed your art.”“I said to myself, I have nephews and nieces who I adore, and I helped raise them, so those will be my children. That’s what I thought for a long time, because I felt that I couldn’t be true to both my art and my child.”

She added;

Getting older. I like to joke and say that you’re ready [to have a child] when your body isn’t ready, and when your body is ready, you’re not mentally ready.

“I guess you have the best eggs when you’re like 22; but at 22, you don’t even know yourself.
