One of my favourite strands of Mitzi Bytes is the bit about female friendships, and I wanted to explore those themes more closely in my new project. It's the story of two friends who meet in their first year at university and sweeps through the next two decades of their lives, and shows the way those lives run parallel and come apart regarding experiences of motherhood and maternity. The "sweep" of it was inspired by Lauren Groff's Fates and Furies, which I loved so much. (less)
