Excuses, excuses......

Here's a question that's bothered a lot of people and deserves a good answer: if Elly wants to write so badly, why doesn't she just shut up and write? It's not as if she really needs a degree in English in order to express herself; if she wanted to write as badly as she said she did, she'd simply get out there and do it. It seems to me that her hiding behind the wreckage of her academic failure is simply her way of avoiding having to admit that she doesn't really want to write at all; she got it into her head that she should be a writer but simply doesn't have it in her to create anything that isn't whining about how being a suburban mother with poor time management skills is the worst fate ever. From what we've seen, she seems to have been designed to do endless loads of clothes, give her children questionable advice and cook fatty foods; getting her to admit it and and feel good about being what she is is an impossibility owing to her other feature: the need to complain and garner sympathy.
