When I am stuck on one project, I remember a line from a conference: “What else are you working on?” Picture books are so easy and so hard to write and the stack of impersonal rejections is staggering. If I put all my hopes and dreams on the Magic Dragonfly and she flits from one slush pile to the next for several years (decades?) waiting will be an exercise in frustration. I get enough exercise! So I keep tweaking Victor Javalina and Danny Lion and Tuk-tuk the Lemming. More than that I keep asking myself: what else am I working on? This week is was the Bush Dancers in the Outback! Tomorrow – what else?
