One word you would use to describe motherhood? 

Only ONE word? I'll need German for this: 'Gesamkunstwerk*'. 

Finish this sentence. On Sunday mornings, you can usually find me... wrangling the kidlets on the husband's sleep-in morning.

What are some causes you care about? 

Holistic health and mental wellness, community care, human rights and autonomy.

If you could bring one book with you on a deserted island what would it be?

How To Survive and Thrive on a Deserted Island (followed closely by The Radiance Sutras translated by Lorin Roche).


What advice would you give potential writers/entrants to this contest? 

Don't hold back!

*A Gesamtkunstwerk (German: [gəˈzamtˌkʊnstvɛʁk], literally "total artwork", frequently translated as "total work of art", "ideal work of art", "universal artwork", "synthesis of the arts", "comprehensive artwork", or "all-embracing art form") is a work of art that makes use of all or many art forms or strives to do so.
