Everyday I write the book. The book of what it's like to be married to him. The kindness. The strength. The sense of decency that radiates off him so intensely, it's almost visible. I want the world to know about him -- how he looks when he's sleeping, how he loves blueberry pancakes, but only if the berries are fresh, not frozen..and how, sometimes, in my heart of hearts, how even I still find new mysteries in him.
Because life with Superman isn't all blueberries and light suppers on the moon.
Sometimes it's alien invasions and mad scientists and Kryptonite poisoning. Sometimes it's having honest-to-gosh demons and wizards on you enemies list. And yet the only thing that really scares him, the only thing that ever slows him down is the thought of the people he loves getting hurt. And that's the kind of heroism people should know about.
People should understand his example. The super-speed kisses goodbye, the snap of his capes as he takes to the air. People should know. And every day I write the book. Be a bestseller...never leave the charts, probably. But to be honest, and more than a little selfish, I share my beautiful husband with the world enough. And these things, these small things I cherish, and these huge fears I endure -- these I'm keeping for myself for awhile.
So everyday I write the book...and every night I tear it up again.

I wrote the above...writing Lois and Clark together, how they needed each other, two titans in love, was absolutely my favorite part of writing that book.
