    Not just “…in the life of a writer,” Cartoon-Boy! There’s a lot of that going around in, oh, so many professions, especially those that do most of their work at a computer….

    Day starts at 8:01 AM with the plan to write ten pages and ends at 5 PM with zilch. So that means Tuesday will probably end at lunch time given Rat’s work ethic. Have twice as much work thus his work day will be half as long.

    >>"Parkinson’s law: “Work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion”.

    Too bad that production managers don’t ‘subscribe’ to that law.

    I woke up yesterday with nothing to do…..and went to bed last night with only half of it done. I must be on the opposite side of the coin from rat.

    What Pastis left out is that you can’t start writing until you’ve read the comics.
