A Visual Guide to Writers' Notebooks
HI FRIENDS, I'M BACK! *runs around hugging everyone* Wait, you didn't know I was gone? Well, I was. I was in Panama. I spoke some Spanish. I went on a zip-line. I made some jokes. I saw some sights. Me me me me me. While I was on the plane back to this great country we call the US of A (I'll be honest with you, my heart swelled a little when the kind, buff customs officer said, "Welcome back," but that's mainly because I'd been mentally playing out an terrible fantasy wherein I get detained for unclear reasons and spend the rest of my life pacing the floors of the O'Hare airport), I couldn't sleep, so I drew you a useful chart instead. I hope it helps you understand why you should NEVER USE MY BLACK SPIRAL NOTEBOOK FOR YOUR TO-DO LISTS, CHARLIE. I WAS GOING TO WRITE IN IT SOMEDAY.
