Unless you’ve been living under a rock in the world of writers, you’ll know that November is currently hosting the world’s greatest writing event–National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo, because National Novel Writing Month is a bit of a mouthful.

And because I only remembered today that I had to write a blog post I’m a humorous sort of person, I shall now proceed to show you  12 different times when Newsies managed to perfectly capture the trials and triumphs of the writers life.* Continue reading
