Schulzian Writing Advice

Snoopy's Literary Side
Snoopy is sitting on the roof of his doghouse, his hands hovering over the typewriter. Lucy, sensing the writer’s block that he’s up against, offers her professional advice (and she even waives her normal 5 cent fee).

“You’re a dog, right?” she says. “Okay, you should write dog stories…Write about one of your brothers…What was it that made him different?” Snoopy thinks for a moment, then leans over to type this epic opening line:

“Andy was fuzzy.”

Ishmael, eat your heart out.
