Daffy Duck when you can't write on a story. Ever watch the old Looney Tunes cartoons? It's great having children, because now I have an excuse to keep watching them! I love those shows. In my normal state of being, I like to think of myself as the suave Bugs Bunny totally on top of things and always whooping the bullies. Take away my stories though and I go nuts!
I remember going on a romantic stroll with my husband once. A story popped into my head and I had to jot it down. So, I whipped the tiny notebook out of my purse and discovered, to my horror, that my pen was missing! I just about lost my mind! My poor husband didn't have one. I was like a junkie or something. "We gotta stop in there and ask if I can borrow a pen now! Now!" We couldn't snag a pen anywhere and it was a half hour before we could get home and find one there. What a nightmare.
Actually, it's pathetic, I guess.
But, that's one way to know.
What other ways are there?
