Wandering around Poe War, the Writer's Resource website, I came across an amusing article, by John Hewitt, from a year ago:
Has anyone ever told you that you couldn’t write your way out of a wet paper sack?
It really isn’t that difficult.
The important thing remember that this is not a job for a computer. You are much better off using a pen or a pencil.
You should press down very hard when you write. That will be helpful because, as you remember, the paper sack is wet.
You can use that moisture to your advantage. Wet paper sacks tear more easily than dry paper sacks. Keep that in mind at all times.
The key to writing your way out of the wet paper sack is to write in such a way that the wet paper begins to tear.
Once you’ve torn a hole in the wet paper sack, you’re halfway out of it.
I know, I know, who has paper sacks around the house, unless they shop exclusively at Trader Joe's, right? ;-D
