How To… Oooh, Shiny!

how to write a blog post narrow

…and that’s pretty much how my day went.  It takes me ten times as long to draw a cartoon as it does to just write the damn blog post, but for some reason I decided to cartoon instead.  I blame the little guy with the pitchfork.

Please tell me I’m not the only one cursed with this form of “productivity”…

  1. I have lots of distrations in my life, keeping me from doing all the things I’m supposed to be doing, but I have to say cartooning isn’t one of them. Luckly, you are, and you are a most marvelous distraction! As are your cartoons! Thanks for posting this!


  2. And just LOOK at the progress bar for Book 8! Blitzed past the 25% mark! WOOHOO!! And if nobody has told you today that you totally rock, please allow me to be the first! 🙂


  3. I didn’t just laugh out loud, I WHEEZED! Gad, this was perfect. I have the lolcats bookmarked at Cheezburger. One click and I’m smothering in cute. A stack of papers to grade and, well, just five minutes of giggles. I need giggles. Just five minutes. Suddenly it’s an hour and a half later.

    I TOTALLY GET every frame you’ve drawn. Thank you. Belly laughs and guffaws are much better than mere giggles!


    • I’m glad you got a wheeze! I’m pretty sure LOLcats are a subversive attack on the global economy. If we harnessed all the hours of productivity lost to LOLcats, there would be no stopping us… but life wouldn’t be nearly so much fun, either!


    • …Ooh, shiny! But hey, a covey of quail is a completely legitimate distraction – very cool! 🙂 We had a flock of grouse in the yard last winter (right in the city), but I haven’t seen any this year. Then again, they’re pretty much too dumb to live, so it wouldn’t take much to wipe them out. I think quail are a little smarter…


  4. I think your little guy with the pitchfork is a member of a large, multinational union. I just wish I could list “sunshine” as a reason for my current lack of productivity. *looks out window at ice coating everything*

    But I’m glad your little devil got you in a cartooning mood! Thanks for my laugh of the day. 🙂


  5. I’d say you’re lucky that writing blog posts isn’t distracting you from finishing critical tasks, LOLing at cat stuff, writing stories, eating food, making food, going for walks, drawing stick people, and looking at shiny things. 🙂


  6. Love your cartooning, please keep them coming! Can totally relate – multiple projects on the go always, inside & in the garden, garage, etc.; where are the clones or maybe 48 hr. days? ⏰🌞
