I’m at Writing Wranglers and Warriors today with a post that starts with the writing process and ends up with broccoli. A brief post, since I’m expert on neither.

Want to know how I think up topics for blog posts?
Of course you do.
I use several techniques:
- A topic comes to me about 9:00 p.m. and I write fast and then stay up all night fixing it (and hoping readers can tell it’s been fixed), finding pictures, and making pictures stay where I want them.
- Sometimes I forget I have a post due on Writing Wranglers and Warriors until 9:00 p.m. the night before, and I stay up all night doing the tasks listed in #1.
- Sometimes a topic comes to me at 9:00 p.m., and I write about it and then see what I’ve written is so horrid that I trash it and write about something else. Often the something else is a topic I’ve meandered into while writing the horrid part.
