Just going to do it

All these things I want to do need to do should do shouldn't do. I really can't unsort it all. So I'm going to pick one.

I'm working on *gasp* a Children's Book about how to Meet a Dog. I just posted a really ugly rant on a forum for really ugly rants about people letting their kids maul dogs in public, and as partial penance for my ugliness (i am not taking down the rant) I will create a short book, complete with illustrations that will not turn off little boys.

I've been joking about doing it for a year, I can't tackle anything any bigger than that, but I think I will enjoy it. Sadly, I cannot use any of my lengthy rant because it was liberally speckled with four letter words.

I was originally going to point it towards parents, but parents are adults and are much harder to teach than kids and I don't have the patience for that.

yessssss!!!! You can do it! I used to give workshops on how to submit your children's manuscripts to a publisher, so if you ever have any questions please feel free to email me. I'm behind you all the way for the magnificent idea!

I wish I could see your rant...

Yep, it is that time of year when we need to sink our teeeth into a good project. Go for it. It is much needed.
