My high school physics teacher was a pretty cool dude. He let me and a religious classmate write out these long debates about Harry Potter on the spare whiteboard. And one day, when doing a worksheet, I was just in no mood to write sentences for my answers. I asked if I could draw a picture instead.
He said yes, but only if I did the entire worksheet in pictures. No words.
I wish I could find that worksheet, but it’s been 11 years, I have no idea where I’ve put my physics papers. You’ll just have to take my word for it that I filled out that entire worksheet with drawings of blocks and ramps and little stick people. Pretty sure I got an A on it, too.
But anyway, remembering that gave me the idea to do a post on the life of a writer — in pictures.
Sadly, these aren’t word-free. But I didn’t make any of them, and that’s just going to have to count. (My post, my rules.)
