The picture book we've been working on for almost forever
Have you ever written, or painted, or sewn something (or knitted, or sculpted, or acted, or sang) that you felt was all wrong, all wrong, so you painted over it or tore the stitches out or re-wrote the thing just to find out that it was so much better the first time around? That you totally almost ruined it when you painted over what you thought was an ugly caterpillar but in actuality just didn't have the chance to become a butterfly? Well, I did this. Thank God I saved the original draft and didn't shift it to the recycling bin in a fit of tempestuousness. The book really is finished now. It has been for a while, sans just a few haiku.
