A Writer's Life is Fraught With Peril

A few days ago, I was in the kitchen getting ready to wash dishes when I was struck with a sudden thought relating to the story I'm writing right now. So I grabbed a bit of notepaper off the fridge and scribbled out this note. I left it on the counter while I did the dishes, then forgot it. When I found it again, my wife had left this helpful note at the bottom. Such is the life of a writer.

At least this isn't like the notebook one of my nieces had. She wrote on the cover "This is the private property of" and then put her name. A few days later she picked it up to see her dad had written "Biff at Large" on the notebook underneath her name. Such is the life of a writer.
