So, here’s the block.  This time not a writer’s block but a drawing block.  Is there a better term for that? That is what I am.

It has taken three months to realize the problem.  The faces!  The child’s face in the story is far more cartoon-y in comparison to the more realistic portrayal of the grandfather.

My daughter suggested that perhaps this is appropriate, because as we age we do loose imagination.  We become more realistic and literal about everything compared to our younger selves. Hmm.

I am thinking on this.  Here are a few samples.  Comment, please!
