Calvin and Hobbes

by Bill Watterson


Hello Friends,

It has been quite some time since I posted!  I have been reading a Calvin & Hobbes comic book I bought really cheap at Barnes and Noble a few weeks ago.  It brings back memories of our son reading them out loud to us all the time when he was a kid.  He has a stack of those books!  But I decided to buy one for myself.  Bill Watterson is such a talented artist and humorist.  I have always loved his comics.

In other news I have been busy with my writing class’s assignment over the past couple of weeks.  I have consulted with my instructor about the story I came up with about a girl who is a cutter.   I found a literary magazine in the Writer’s Market book that accepts submissions up to 5000 words!  My story is almost half that, but I am still working on it.  I don’t want to make it that long, but it is nice to be able to have that much room to tell it instead of it having to be 500 or 1000 words only!  Plus, I am not planning to send it to this magazine.  Finding one was just part of the assignment.  We also have to write a cover letter which I haven’t done before.  I have also been reading a lot of children’s and young adults fiction.  I read Charlotte’s Web for the first time…and cried.  It was so good!  But I couldn’t get into Stuart Little.

I have only sketched a couple of things in watercolors in the last week but unfortunately, they didn’t come out great so I won’t be posting them.  I haven’t been drawing much either.  Just one of those weird months, I guess.

But I thought I would at least check in and tell everyone that I will have something new soon.  I hope everyone is doing well.

I am doing well.  I had a “procedure” (that I won’t mention ) done last Friday that wiped me out for the weekend.  So this has been a busy week getting back into the swing of things.  But life is great!  I hope everyone has had a good week!

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug!  🙂

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork. Thanks for visiting! :)

  1. I miss Calvin and Hobbes! That’s great that you’re writing short stories – Glimmer Train accepts long short stories too. Best of luck with your art and writing!

    • Thank you, Sheila. Your book is in my nightstand stack. I am going to read it when I finish the novel I got for Valentine’s Day. And thanks! I wasn’t reading the newspaper anymore when that comic stirp was around I guess. I discovered it through my son. Thanks for the info on Glimmer Train. I will look into that. Are you working on another novel?

      • Thanks Patsy! I’m working on another one but it’s going pretty slow – life and work keep getting in the way like usual. 🙂

        • You’re welcome Sheila! I actually got a Kindle sample of your book first so I began it but then wanted a physical copy which I have always enjoyed more. But I had already begun a different novel before I got yours. So hopefully in another week or so I can read it. 😁 Then I will review it on Goodreads and Amazon, too, if I can. I hear you about writing being slow. I feel like I am going through my writing correspondence class slowly, but I can’t just push my art aside either!

          • Thank you! I hope you’ll have fun reading it. We’re probably being too hard on ourselves – maybe the writing speed doesn’t matter as long as we have fun doing it whenever we can. Best of luck with your art and writing!


  2. I am glad all is well with you, Patsy and that your procedure is over and done with. Have a wonderful week!
