This Is My Brain on Charles M. Schulz

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?

    1. I like it! Rebellious, resourceful, and well dressed (I always loved his little coat)!

  2. That's hilarious. :) I have no idea what I'd try to draw myself as, but I'm quite sure it would end up looking dreadful!

    1. As you can see, Faith, mine is no work of art! Then again, I remember Charles Schulz saying in an interview once that he was told by art teachers that he should give up cartooning because he couldn't draw.
