In December I was full of column ideas. I almost couldn't write them down fast enough. But this month? All the idea arteries in my brain have hardened. LIKE CONCRETE.
HOWEVER! I have deadlines. DEADLINES! What to do, what to do?
I look back at the week I just had and identify a moment when I was feeling something--anything!--strongly. And then I see if I can turn that moment into some kind of narrative. This week I was extremely annoyed when a driver nearly ran me off the road because he didn't see me. Why didn't he see me? Because he hadn't scraped the snow off his windows.
A small moment, I know. But still. I got a rant out of it. Wrote it down. E-mailed it to Editor Lisa. Waiting to hear from her now.
