beyond the pictures

[ #19040 ]
From author Peter David's blog:

«"You draw the pictures?" the mother asked, impressed.

Now I was stuck. "Actually, I'm a writer," I said.

Her face fell, her enthusiasm considerably diminished. "Oh. Well, then-- what do you do in the comics?" She could not conceive that there was any function to a comic beyond the pictures on the page.

The son jumped in to explain matters. "The artist does the story, and then the writer fills in the words."

My smile pasted on my face, I bobbed my head slightly, pulled out my revolver and shot them both.»

You see? Most technical people don't get any respect. It's not just programmers and admins.

Next week: overworked geologist has trouble getting rocks off.
