Has anyone ever told you that when you're supposed to be writing, you're supposed to be writing?
Ordinarily, I'd echo that. I'd be all up in your face like a drill sergeant: "Butt in Chair, maggots! String those words together!" But when I'm the one slacking off, I try to be kinder than that. You should be too.
So what should you do when you're supposed to be writing and you're not? I advise you to indulge in a little right-brain nonsense. I decided to sketch myself.
After a moment of studying this work of art, I realized that I had inadvertently channeled my all-time favorite cartoonist and drawn myself as Charlie Brown. Maybe I need to rethink my self-image.
Who would you draw yourself as?
