Finished off another draft of my chapter book, Malcolm, and sent it off to the publisher. A chapter book is kind of an early novel -- designed for elementary school readers. My editor Liz has really been giving me some good notes that have been a joy to work from -- really ended up making the manuscript better. Take it from one who's HAD to execute bad notes, (cough) TV animation (cough), it makes a huge difference when the note giver is on the ball. I'm well pleased with how it turned out and hope they like it, too.

Started back on Leonard. Two more chapters then it's off to rewrite land. Send powerful energizing vibes my way so I can "crank this sucka!"

First draft word count a/o today: 64867

Thanks Mike.

Sorry I didn't post your positive vibes earlier but they got stuck in a comments moderation sinkhole for some reason. Ah, this new fangled webnet with all it's confusing wires and tubes!
