My friend Coach Sokolove sent me the link to this marvelous article: “Snoopy taught me how to be a writer.” Click here to read it: https://wapo.st/2LlLJ0K?tid=ss_tw&utm_term=.f2f7e76b7108
I like the spirit of fun in this piece. Even better, hidden within the fun are some important reminders about writing: Sometimes your hard work doesn’t look too good when you reread it. You’re likely to get rejection notices. And you’re going to have moments of joy and glory.
What I really like about this piece is that it comes from a direction you’re not expecting: a dog in a comic strip starts you thinking about writing. What unusual angle can you use to talk about something important to you?
