cartoon characters

As writers, we sometimes like to imagine ourselves as the embodiment of Shakespeare, or Jane Austen, or even Stephen King. But let’s face it—most times, the life of a writer is best represented by clever, kooky cartoon characters. Here are some of our favorite cartoon alter egos illustrating the unique experiences we writers regularly face.

 

After a late-night writing session:

tired marry bed

 

When someone tells you to get a “real” job:

my cat was right about you

“Getting that first poem published was the hardest threshold to cross. My team at Writer’s Relief kept encouraging me…then came the acceptance! We celebrated…then I continued writing, and Writer’s Relief continued doing the wonderful work they do!”

—King Grossman, Writer
