No need to bother with keeping the matching cord with the device. Try several. Huff and puff and sweat and try to cram it in. Eventually I find one that fits.
Last night, as I was packing for a work trip
I had used this cord before, and had trouble getting it out before as well. I spent enough time on it that I started to worry. What would my boss say when I turned in the damaged ipad with the Nintendo cord dangling from it?
Yes, that's correct. This was a cord abandoned by our son years ago, and had gotten into the cord rotation... and apparently it was one of my favorite go-to's, because this was the second time I had gotten into a jam (literally and figuratively).
Thankfully, I eventually was able to yank it out.
It made me wonder what kind of openings we pay attention to as people, as writers, as artists. Are we stuck plugging away at the stuff that's "safe" for us and while doing so, do we miss out on some avenues, some opportunities?
Jennifer Brown Banks--on her blog Pen and Prosper--is sharing a link for an anthology on music. Chicken Soup for the Soul has several call-outs. I'm stalking an editor for a children's book that I have unwavering faith in. (It's a slow stalk... imagine a slug leaving a trail behind it as it stalks someone.) My NaNoGoneWrongo is stagnant, but I hope to get some work done on it this weekend.
(And I don't need large spans of time to move it forward a little. Even a half hour, if I take advantage of it, will add to the story.)
What are some openings/opportunities you've taken advantage of? Exhausted minds want to know...
