The Four Stages of Writing from Debbie Ridpath Ohi

Thanks to the giveaway, I seem to have attracted some wonderful new followers.  Welcome, fellow bookbrains!  If you're also a writer, as I suspect most of you are, this comic from Debbie Ridpath Ohi is for you:

If you haven't yet discovered InkyGirl, otherwise known as Debbie Ridpath Ohi, run over there and check out her website.  She has an entire section dedicated to comics for writers!  She posted the above comic at Writer Unboxed. She was one of my first followers, for which I'll be eternally grateful.

Debbie's also illustrating a picture book by writer/comedian/actor Michael Ian Black, due to come out from Simon & Schuster in early 2012. Congrats, Debbie!

What do you think?  Doesn't this comic get right to the heart of what we go through?


  1. Ha! Yeah, that pretty much sums it up :)

  2. Maybe I'm just a very, very insecure writer, but I never have the "my book rocks" moment until way later, when my agent or my friends tell me so!


  3. That comic is great. It definitely sums up the writing process.

  4. LOL As you know, I love inkygirl. :D

  5. Oh ha ha ha, yes, Stina! (How funny that we used the same comic the same day.)

    Frankie, you're hilarious! Especially the falalala part!

    Hi Cheree, and yes, I think it sums it up.

    Ah, Kelsey, I'm sorry to hear you don't have those "my writing is brilliant" moments until later. Don't be insecure about this! You have an AGENT, girl!

    Corey, thanks for the comment. Awesome contest you've got going on over there on your blog!

  6. very cool- i'd not heard of her. I will check her out. I love Michael Ian Black, so I will look out for their collaborative project.

  7. Thanks, Katharine and Myrna. Yes, Debbie's very talented.

  8. I love Debbie's cartoons! Isn't she awesome?! :-)

  9. Yep! She certainly is. Great to hear from you, Shannon.
