3 panels. First panel: comic me is sitting at a desk with my partner. I am putting on headphones and saying "you were right! I work so much better with headphones to cut down distractions!" and my partner replies "i'm glad you like them!" Panel 2: We are working. I am humming softly along with music in my headphones. Panel 3: I am yell-singing "ZOMBIE ZOMBIE EH EH EH" and my partner is looking very distracted.


He’s loving working from home with me.

      It would be pretty cool to do something like that! But I have to say, I do like the freedom of just posting on the internet whenever I have something.

      I also tend to be a bit of a lone-worker. But, pandemic, so I guess I’m learning new people-skills.

    Lucy – I just read Kevin Wilson’s book, NOTHING TO SEE HERE. V. Good. FAMILY FANG, of course, is a classsic. If I were to write longform, THAT is the kind of tone I would want, funny and weird, yet with heart.

      I haven’t read those books! I just looked them up and they sound really cool though, right up my alley, definitely something I should check out! My biggest longfrom influence is Terry Pratchett. Not that I write like him or even want to write like him (I want to be my own writer), but his mix of silly humour, clever humour, insight, compassion and anger is, to me, exactly what writing should be.
