There are writers. And then there are writers.
But I was a cartoonist.
Let me take you way back to the year 1988 for a lesson in shutting up.
I was drawing cartoon strips for a very popular newspaper called ‘Mid-Day’. And every day, I’d draw a new strip, and submit it to the newspaper. And since it was back in the days before the Internet, I often had to get on a train, travel 20 miles, and walk for 15 minutes to get to the newspaper office before the 7:30 am deadline.
One day I ran into the editor. And he commended me on my cartoons.
