02/01/2005 Archived Entry: "No BHM column today"

NO BACKWOODS HOME COLUMN TODAY. Some damn writer didn't make her deadline. :-(

Normally, the pressure of the due date combines with fear of starvation to bust past any writer's block I may suffer. I've always thought dramatically blocked writers were a buncha lily-livered, cowardly, self-indulgent wimps. [Whip cracks] Quit whining and work, woman! But this time the words just wouldn't flow, even though the concept was there, and even though I made myself sit at the computer with the document open in front of me.

Working on it, though. So gimme a few days and the column will be there. The good news: Thanks to a little help from my friends, the column for February 15 is already under way. And as I keep promising Dave-the-editor and Oliver-the-webmaster, one of these days, I'm going to put a spare column or two in the can so words will be there when there are none in my brain.
