Inside an author's sketchbook part 2

For those of us lacking in talent, learning to draw can be a daunting and frustrating undertaking, especially if you know someone who can scribble something on  napkin without a second thought and have it look better than your latest artistic opus.

But these initial barriers are worth battling through, and like everything else worthwhile, it takes discipline, practice, and above all passion. But the rewards of creating your own four color crack are enormous and immeasurable, especially for as writer. The creative effect is synergistic, potent, and euphoric. 

One of my favorite subjects to draw (and listen to and watch perform), Charli XCX.
