A cartoonist’s advice

Bill Watterson, Gavin Aung Than, Sept 03, 2013
Commentary by Stephen Downes

You've probably seen this, but I'll link to it anyway, because it contains the words of my spiritual guide Bill Watterson. For those of you who don't know him, he is the creator of Calvin and Hobbes, the greatest comic strip of all time. In so many way, I am Calvin. Here's some more Watterson from Brain Pickings: "It’s surprising how hard we’ll work when the work is done just for ourselves.... I’ve found that the only way I can keep writing every day, year after year, is to let my mind wander into new territories. To do that, I’ve had to cultivate a kind of mental playfulness." See also Alfred Thompson.
