Write your way through a snow day!

No school, no work, no errands, so write your way through the day.

As long as you have heat, and electricity to power your gadgets, relax into today's blizzard and use the time to move your writing along:

1. Write an essay, poem, or letter to the editor of your local newspaper about the magic of a "snow day."
2. Call a friend or family member, because you have the luxury of time to chat today.
3. Look up magazine submission guidelines and write a good query for an article. This might be the day you get a paying assignment.
4. Got a current writing project that just isn't moving? Sit down with it and see what you can do - delete, edit, shake it up, and get it moving ahead.

Stay safe and enjoy the day.
