anthimeria: Comic book panels (Sequential Art)
Too wiped by work to hack any of the novels, but still wanted to write something when I came home, so I tackled the picture book I wrote back in October.

Back then I said I wanted to cut 30-50 words, but . . . well, instead I seem to have added 20.  It's not a disaster, I cleaned up the prose itself a lot, so this may just be a longer picture book than I was thinking.  I read it out loud, and keeping in mind I do storytime 1-2 a week, the story went right up to that edge of read-aloud-able.  I don't want it to get any longer (it's 550 right now), but I think this is a good length for the story.

It's a lot longer than Helperbot, the first picture book I wrote, but it's also aimed a little older and has a more complicated story, so.
