12/1/08 — Hard to believe it’s December already. Nice to be home, though, with plenty of time to work on the ATTACK OF THE MUTANT UNDERWEAR: TAKE TWO. Today I got a rough draft of the first scene done, and a good start on the second. No attempt is being made to write well, just get something down that can be polished later. That’s my style. It’s all about rewriting.
On a totally unrelated, but very interesting note, a friend suggested I check out the story of the amazing talking — and reasoning! — parrot, Alex. (Click link to see You Tube of Alex at work.)
With all of the great animal characters in children’s literature, I expect to see Alex join them on the pages of some new novel soon. Anyone out there working on it now?
