Stuck? Just draw a cigarette!

Lynda Barry did a guest turn on NPR's Talk of the Nation yesterday, talking about how to deal with writer's (or artist's) block. Barry's solution is simple: Just do it:

In her latest graphic memoir, Picture This: The Near-Sighted Monkey Book, she writes,"The worst thing I can do when I'm stuck is to start thinking and stop moving my hands."

And if you also have doodler's block too, or think you can't draw?

"All I tell them is try drawing a cigarette on anybody in a magazine," Barry tells NPR's Neal Conan. "They always start laughing, and I can tell they always feel better."
