The Life of a Picture Book Part Two: Drafting and waiting

Sometimes it takes a long time for the life of picture book to really get started. I began my ogress story over a month ago, with the idea of a character. And now, so many weeks later, it is nothing more than a partially finished rough draft, waiting within the pages of a composition notebook.

It is a sad way to begin life. Neglected, ignored as I pay attention to other stories (and even finishing some). But that is the way it is with picture books (and novels and poems) sometimes.

I haven't forgotten you, little ogress. Wait for me!
