We’re Still Hard At It

I know I told you we were hoping to send back the latest revisions early this week. But I’m afraid we’re not done! Remember when I told you a few weeks ago how sometimes things take longer than you expect? Well, that’s what happened. Poor Cindy is bleary-eyed and brain dead after the last two days. She is just about two-thirds of the way through the final read-through, catching as many of those picky little writer details as she can. Of course, then there will need to be one more quick FINAL final read-through just to make sure she didn’t make any mistakes when she changed things in the final read-through. That way, when she sends it in, she’ll know she did her very best.

Whew! Don’t you wish you were a writer? Anyway, hopefully on Friday I’ll be able to tell you that it’s off to our agent for her stamp of approval.

Enough of that already. If you were hoping for “See Flash!”, it’s your lucky day! Here we go . . .

The theme of today’s Flash illustrations is long and skinny. Check them out:

Flash (By Anonymous)

Flash (By Bailey)

Flash (By ESB)

And now for our inventions. Cindy wishes these were real instead of from her imagination.

Sir Vac-a-Lot (By Daniel)

The Automatic Bedmaker (By A.N.)

And that’s it for this week. Stay tuned for Friday’s “Ask Flash!” and an update on our progress.

    You are so close! Only one more third of revisions left, and then another read, and you will be done! Then you can rest for as long as you want, before you start your next book. I can’t believe it’s been 3 years and you and Cindy stuck to it the whole time. It will surely pay off once people all around the country buy your book.
