Your Monday Laugh

I'm revising my new novel (yay!). The first draft is complete at 44,000 words, so now I'm working on developing character and subplots more.

It's been going well, but sometimes I hit a wall.

Writer's block always seems to be less painful when you can turn to a good laugh.

This New Yorker cartoon never fails to crack me up!

Funny! I can't believe you can draft a whole novel in 44K. Mine are usually double that. I am SO longwinded! Good luck with the developments.

That is hilarious! I'm starting my re-write/editing (supposedly) starting yesterday, but got side tracked by a book cover design contest, LOL. But seriously, I just finished my first draft of my first YA novel and don't know what the heck I'm doing!!! There's a lot to be done! Just commiserating :)
