A few nights ago, in the midst of writer’s block, I pulled two books from the bookcase on “things to write about.”
I opened a section and read the first thing I saw.
“You’ve long suspected that your best friend is a CIA operative. Now your child is in danger overseas, and you need help.”
Not touching that one.
“Your cat (or dog) has a Twitter feed. What are its first three tweets?”
Flat stare. Try again.
“One of your grandparents teaches you something important.” Bingo!
