See that up there?
That's the beginning of a piece of artwork about one of the characters in my book, Scritch. It's a 4-inch tall dude named Selwyn who has mousey ears and a sword.
I haven't been able to figure out what to blog about today, probably because all of my creative brain cells are taken up with writing, painting, painting the ceiling, and pouring water through my sinus cavity with a neti pot.
As a matter of fact, I may be washing away brain cells.
And speaking of exploding brain cells, have you ever talked to a three-year-old?
me: What are you doing, dude?
Biscuit: Go away. I just... I want to be alone.
Biscuit: Because I'm putting on my blue leotard.
me: Why does that make you want to be alone?
Biscuit: Because the black one is dirty.
me: That's why you're putting on the blue one, not why you want to be alone.
Biscuit: It's private.
me: You're already wearing it. You're not even naked. And you yell for me to come wipe your bottom for you twice a day.
Biscuit: Yeah, but that's different, mom. That's poop.
It boggles the mind.
