Thought I made a new thread like this but I couldn't find it.

So here is a link to a comic dealing with how not to write the perfect novel.

Pearls Before Swine

The link above opens to a daily post, not the "A Writer's Journey" of April 13, 2104 I think that's intended.

For some reason, I just don't care for "Pearls Before Swine." It's in my local paper and I look at it from time to time, but it never grabs me. Maybe it's the weird characters (no weirder than some in other strips I like a lot)...maybe it's the presence of the writer / artist as a character in the strip...maybe I just found it a less-than-satisfactory substitute for "Cathy" (which, I think, it replaced in my local paper.)

Oh, yeah. The link takes you to today's comic---but the archive is accessible. What date does this "Writer's Journey" start? 'Cause anybody that's interested could go back to that date and work forward...

Let's try this one.


Maybe I should have waited a day.

And it's not my favorite by far--I would rather have Cathy--but it does some interesting things with writing books now and then.
