I was pleased to report that the "Jefferson Salamander has Right of Way in Burlington Ontario", in a recent DeHaan Services article.
It turns out that Burlington makes an annual practice of giving right of way to the Jefferson Salamander population. Why? Read my article!
One Amphibious Writing Tip
Annual events, such as giving salamanders the right of way over a road, can give older articles a second life.
My DeHaan Services article refers back to my previous essay in Environmental Graffiti, which covered that year's road closure. It gave more background on this endangered species of salamander.
I might not have noticed this year's road closure except that I'd written about it last year.
The amphibious writing tip is to get a second life from your previous articles.
Did you write about an annual event, such as a holiday or seasonal change? Does the topic recur, coming back like seasonal influenza? Do you cover eternal truths such as life, death or taxes?
Then you have a wealth of topics to cover in your writing, as well as background articles that you can cite.
Give your muse a second life, just as these Jefferson Salamanders get a second chance at survival thanks to an annual road closure.
