I woke up this morning with what appears to be vertigo. As I sat up in bed, the whole room tilted and I nearly fell over. When I got up to walk around, I was going at an angle. Talk about weird. Rick gets vertigo pretty bad sometimes, but not me. I'm not sure what this is all about, but I really doubt it has anything to do with my recent surgery. Maybe I slept wrong, since my neck was a little sore when I woke up. Who knows. I took something for it, so now I'm just kind of a zombie. This clipart pic is almost too much for me.
Anyway, I've been wanting to start on a picture book idea I've had for a few days, but just haven't felt up to it yet. Maybe I'll let it brew in my mind awhile as I lounge around on my bed. It's about a tiger, which is my favorite animal. As you know, I have two picture books out right now. A New Job for Dilly was my first, and there are to be two more Dilly books to come. Lemur Troops & Critter Groups came out in December, and there are two more Critter books scheduled. My next one to come out is The Marshmallow Man. I was thinking about all the other stories I have written. Some are ...
Coffee For Collie
Bananas Don't Dance
Manny's Big Adventure
Too Many Worms!
Mountain Goats Are Kids Like You
Gooble Gooble's Scary Day
Sara Makes A Difference
Hungry Little Numbat
Sometimes I wonder if I should work more on submitting some of these stories, rather than start a new project. I know I'm very fortunate to be contracted for seven books all at once, especially since I went for over five years trying to find a home for just one of them. Now I have this idea for a story about a tiger. I guess the good thing is that I'm not lacking for ideas.
How about you -- how many unpublished gems do you have lying around?
