I have a number of pieces of paper stuck to the wall around my computer. Some are information, some are inspiration, and a couple are just to remind me not to take myself too seriously.
One of my favorites is an old Peanuts cartoon, clipped from a newspaper and yellowed with age. It’s three frames long and in each the picture is simply Snoopy, sitting on his doghouse with his trusty typewriter. The text goes like this:
Some nights were dark.
Some nights were stormy.
Some shots rang out.
Some maids screamed.
Some more editors
sent rejection slips.
How about you? What’s on your wall?
