Today we settle the great debate once and for all: drafting, or revising? Our guest, graphic novelist, Tillie Walden, weighs in. (Spoiler alert: write, write, write, and think about perfection later.) We also consider the value of the “traditional” story, how Tillie prioritized the truth of her emotions when drawing her memoir, and the quirky publishing journey that started to grab hold of her in high school. Listen in and find out why, in the end, we’re all just half baked cookies.

Spend some time enjoying the resonance of Tillie’s work on Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, or check out her website for a full list of publications. You can also join us in pre-ordering her upcoming book Are You Listening, which she talks about on the show.
