Blog Post #4

Thought I'd open up the mailbag again this week to answer your questions, so here goes...

Question #1:

Dear Todd,

This is a bit of a two 'fer. Carb went out on my '67 'Stang, and I wanted to get your advice. Rebuild, or replace with an aftermarket part? Part two: the car is outside, and I wanted to see if I should wear Smartwool's lightweight fast dry merino, or the hike light crew.


Carbo Unloading


Dear CU,


This is the second time I've received a message for Todd regarding Smartwool socks, so I think we may have a broken link somewhere. I'm Brian. That said, I'd probably try to rebuild the carburetor if you can, but if not, the Holley 4160 Series should do the trick. All while wearing Smartwool's lightweight fast dry merino socks, they're honestly a delight.


Question #2

Dear Brian,

How do you get inspired to write?


Your Mum


Dear YM,

Excited for the international flair, thanks for writing in! Also, I called my Mom just to make sure she didn't submit this question.

Arrested Development Narrator: She didn't.

Still, it's a pretty good one.

Sometimes I wake up with an idea, and I'm off to the races, and somedays I have to find it. Outlines help, but some days it's just slogging through the effort out of pure determination. Other days start without much to go on, but I'm able to find inspiration after a half hour into the attempt.

This is a similar question and answer to the whole writer's block thing, but it's still good.


Well that's the mailbag for this week. Got a questions? Let me hear from you!
