Hey! Go out and get your copy of What It Is by Lynda Barry, either through your local independent bookseller or via Drawn & Quarterly, Lynda's current (and awesome) publisher.
I've got mine and I'm very very glad.
It's a combination of autobiographical picture story telling and writing exercises. But this description is an insult to the art of this book.
Go! But It! Now! (Ok, or beg your local library to get a copy as soon as possible (now?))
And now I really have to get outdoors.
Enjoy the day.
