Less Reading, More Pictures -- No, That's Not the Motto of the University of Alabama

As I searched books and the Internet for different ways to provide information about how to write a novel, I came across a number of posters and cartoons which struck me as funny or insightful. Some have already been used, but some I'm going to post here now. This is not a way of getting out of writing the blog.  In fact, it takes more time to upload these images than it does to actually write the 500 to 700 words I usually put into a post. But we all need a break and a laugh once in a while.

Writing can be a lonely business. It doesn't necessarily have to be, but I think, if most writers are like me, they would rather be left alone to work on a project at least for part of each day. I find I’m more easily distracted by instant access to news and entertainment on the web, but I haven't gotten to the point of having to cut off my Internet connection.  I hope you all enjoy the results.


  1. My favorite is the synopsis one. Argh!

  3. I like sarcasm, no matter how it's spelled.
