Rattlesnake In The Drawer
Hey guys -- having some internet difficulties, so please don't think I've gone off the grid. Should be cleared up by next week!
My friend Mark (not the famous Walking Man) opened a drawer and found a rattlesnake. I turned this event -- in which he shot at the snake (the operative word in this sentence is at), thereby leaving a huge hole in his floor, snake unharmed -- into an essay. I guess I think of this as the perfect metaphor for writers. We're always looking for things and finding the unexpected. Any thoughts of strange experiences with writing or drawers? I'm in the last edit stage of a big project and am pleased to report that it is slightly more pleasant than a root canal. Hope everyone is having a great week!
