Doodlebugging

I have five scenes left to write in Three Dog Dreaming. (Well, five-ish, things are pretty fluid here). The end is nigh! So naturally I am doing everything I can to avoid actually working on it.

Yesterday I asked twitter if anyone wanted doodles, and it seemed they did.

So here are my collected doodles from yesterday, to prove that when it comes to work avoidance strategies, I can get pretty desperate.

Now, I should probably at least open this document and pretend to write.

    So great. Think you should write and illustrate a dark and twisty story. Have you seen the fabulous illustrated books Audrey Audrey Niffenegger makes? I say makes, because they're art, and were made by hand, by her, before being published. They're so lovely; I just know you could do something similar.

    Cat! You are soooo talented. You have to do some sort of illustrated book. Am still laughing at the unicorn/pinata.
