    She does work in a bookstore where there are oodles of words put into coherent sentences.

    Y’know, “men-children” can be very funny—if they’re Harpo Marx or The Three Stooges.

    But I seriously pity anyone who has to deal with them IRL.

    Laura wants Adam to be supportive of her. But she won’t do the same for him.

    The Adam@home Wikipedia page mentions the strip was previously titled Adam, and mentions: “Originally focusing on office-place humor, the comic’s tone shifted when Adam became a stay-at-home consultant.” I do remember that. No further discussion of the original back story is provided, but I seem to remember that Adam was an office worker and Laura was a stay-at-home mom, but their roles were reversed when Adam was downsized. Does anyone remember any more details about that original back-story? In particular, what was Adam’s skill set from his office worker days? I’m pretty sure it didn’t involve any sort of creative writing, and that was something he sort of stumbled into when he had to find something he could do from home to help supplement the family’s income. I also seem to recall that Laura, when she had to join the workforce, didn’t originally find work in a bookstore, but in another business – I don’t remember which – and found the job in the bookstore after she herself was downsized.

    You can devote your whole life to something and still not be as good at it as a ‘born natural’. Just the way life works, Adam…

    Adam… Maybe working on your vocabulary might improve your writing. The ease with which a person finds words can affect his/her ability to write.

    Unfortunately, Adam doesn’t have “Writer’s Block”, he has “Writer’s Schlock”…

    Somehow words fail him at the wrong time.

    Well, the first step is to admit you have a problem. I don’t know what the second step is.

    No one is a “natural” at anything. Those who seem to pick up things easily do so because of a LOT of hard work onlookers never saw.

    What you want to do/be isn’t always what you can be/do. A lot of the time you win by just breaking even.

    Maybe he’s finally realizing that writing just isn’t working out, he should transition to something else. But he’s a man-child, and keeping him focused is always a struggle!!!
