It’s time to get back to writing!!!
You see, there comes a time in every responsible journalist’s life that we experience a bit of burn out. Last August, I got to a point where I was just simply out of ideas. The current President of the United States seemed to be the only source of headlines, and they were ALL negative!
Well, we at Newswerthy don’t seek to be negative all the time. So, I made a pact with myself: I was determined to write a positive article about Donald Trump.
Tired and desperate, I went to bed on that August night. I told my wife, “Don’t wake me until there’s a positive news story about Trump!” Then asleep I went.
Well, being the wonderful and supportive companion she is, she kept her word. She left me alone to recharge my creative batteries until such time that Trump brought me a positive headline.
Last night, my loving wife shook my shoulder gently and said, “Honey, it’s time. You have to wake up.”
“What is it? What did he do?” I exclaimed, popping abruptly out of my peaceful slumber.
“Just come see for yourself.” She said. “It’s on the TV. Go look.”
I struggled through atrophy to get onto my feet. Unsteadily, I made my way to the living room — my now 9 year old daughter running up to give me a hug, “Daddy, I’m going to start the fifth grade soon!”
The shock over how long I had slept was rivaled only by what I saw on the TV. She was right. It was immediately clear to me what my next headline would be. The nap worked!
