I’ve finalized my second Dear Lola book (so many tweaks for perfection!) and began work on a third volume in the series this week. The writing seems to be flowing, but the cartoons make me positively nutty. Not a very long journey in my case. I’ve also decided to take another crack at the novel that my brain has been obsessing over for years. Unfortunately, novels are very hard to write. Very hard. So hard, they make my brain hurt.

I need to make sure Hubster knows how hard I am working so he’ll continue paying for my snacks.

If you are a writer, please make sure to let Hubster know I need unlimited snacks in the comment section. The 2020 household finance negotiations start this month and  I can’t lose my cookie budget – we will all suffer if that happens.

A text box describing the Tragic Life of a Writer. It reads 'Wake up with brain bursting with ideas. Sit at computer and bang on keyboard. Stare at screen dejectedly while furiously hitting the delete button. Eat lunch at desk. Hold down delete button while chewing. Lay head on keyboard and take a nap. Resume keyboard banging after cleaning up drool. Repeat until book is finished or someone finds your mummified body.'
