Clip It!

As some of you may know, my latest novel has got sucked into a worm hole of late. I write a few hundred words, only to delete a few thousand others. My dear friend LKH found an article in the newspaper about creativity, and how to get it back when it seemed lost. Being a thoughtful lass and handy with a pair of scissors to boot, she snipped it out and sent it to me, with a cute card and some words of encouragement. Lucky me.

Do you ever read an article in a newspaper or magazine and think of someone who'd enjoy it? Do you have a pair of scissors? Do you know how to wield them? Well get onto it!

While you're doing it, you can sing this little song to yourself, to the tune of Devo's Whip It!

when an article comes along
you must clip it
before the mailbox waits too long
you must clip it
when something's going on
you must clip it

now clip it
into shape
shape it up
get straight
go forward
move ahead
envelope it
it's not too late
to clip it
clip it good

  1. Note to self: must get some pinking shears (what a brilliant name for speccy scissors incidentally), to pretty up my future article clippings. Now I'm gonna be singing 'clip it' for the rest of the day!
