I should know better than to leave home without paper and a pencil

I’ve been doing a lot of writing lately. I gave myself a deadline of today to finish an article I’ve been thinking of for a week and spent the whole day having writers block.
As soon as I walked out the door to pick up our Chinese takeout for the evening, 100 ideas came swarming into my head. In my Jeep was a pen, but I cleaned it over the weekend and there was not a scrap paper in sight.

The moral of the story is twofold:

  1. If you have writers block, a simple change of scenery can unblock you
  2. Never leave home without some 3×5 notecards in your car
