So suddenly I realized I had a deadline and NO IDEAS for a column. Somehow I ground out this one. And I did think unto myself, "Yeah. This probably really sucks."
But it's gotten more hits online than usual, which is a good thing in NewspaperWorld these days. It's just . . . surprising to me. I wonder why some things seem to work and other things don't.
I felt that way at the TKE today as I pulled for returns. Why do some novels take off? And other equally worthy novels never do?
It's a mystery for sure.
