A Natural Birth - Short Story
Great piece. Great sort of twist at the end. Maybe it's because I, regardless that I haven't had any children yet, but a Women's Studies minor at university, completely understand where the story is coming from, I don't feel the explanation at the end was at all necessary. It was well clear in the story. Enjoyed it. Thanks.
oh gosh.. thanks Icy!! *blush* its a first draft and I prob should go and dust it of a bit more. and yes other commenters.. your body knows what to do.. you just need to trust it... PJ - I'd love to think that conversations over a birthing woman was rare.. perhaps they are in your part of the world - but here in Aust, we are fighting for the right to birth at home....yeah - don't get me started...
*crosses her legs* The reveal halfway through the story is pretty great, and I appreciated the layers of meaning in the doctor's conversation. It really is annoying until the reveal. Beyond that, your description is is very good and I could almost see the scene. Excellent, Annie.

An ode to a Moleskin
I saw one of those Moleskin notebooks in a shop a short while ago and wondered why is it so revered relative to other brands, and costs a fair bit more too. I too prefer to type, mostly because I don't write very fast and can't really edit cleanly on paper, or share among networks and devices. Of course paper doesn't need a battery, well not yet anyway! I type fast too, surprisingly I type faster on my iPhone than on a conventional keyboard.
