The fiction, The Elegant Out – A Novel, by Elizabeth A Bartasius follows thirty-six-years-old Elizabeth as she juggles between her obsession of birthing another child and finally writing a novel. Once upon a time, she had dreamed of becoming a writer, but now, when she could actually work toward materializing that aspiration, the loud ticks of her biological clock distracted her. Although she had a ten-year-old kid, Jack, from her previous abusive marriage, the hankering of creating a child with the man she loves nagged her like a plague. As if the battle inside her head wasn’t enough, her boyfriend’s reluctance to marry her and have babies with her added an emotional conflict to the equation. In her more rational times, however, she wondered if she wanted a child as an excuse to put off working toward her dream of becoming a writer.
