Writers often suffer from writer’s block. Cures for it are suggested by the Purdue University Online Writing Lab. For some of us writer’s block arrives one day in early July and continues into August. Steve emailed this today:
My Dad often quoted
(was it from Burma-Shave road signs?):
“As a rule, man’s a fool,
When it’s hot, he wants it cool.
When it’s cool, he wants it hot.
Always wanting what it’s not!”
(Gordon, yet another non-original day…)
Steve’s not the only one who’s been suffering through unoriginal days. I can’t put two sentences together that seem worth sharing. So…I found this Burma Shave ad on the web…a reminder that sometimes it’s better to keep silent than to contribute to word polution.
