Did I mention I can't draw?
I think it's important that I put that in the record... before proceeding any further down this career path.
They say Michaelangelo could see the sculptures waiting in the raw blocks of marble.
Hmmm.... I suppose I too can see the figures I wish to appear on my paper. Only I seem to achieve mine mostly by erasing!
But eventually the artist in me... a VERY stubborn person... wins out. Mostly through sheer endurance and spite.
I'm one of those unfortunate sorts who tries harder and harder the more impossible something seems... often to my own detriment.
But anyhow... whoever invented the eraser deserves some kind of Nobel Prize!
Oh, here he comes now.... the inventor of the modern eraser... actually it's some of the reference I'm using for my new book that takes place in 1907. That's Santos Dumont riding in the car I think... no wait... it's Bleriot, of course!
Boy did they know how to wear hats back then...
