My editor finally asked when they’d get the first draft of Dragonbreath 2, so I’ve been writing furiously on it all day. I think I agreed to much too short a deadline. (First draft by mid-January! Me, delusional? Naaaah…)
On the other hand, I did finally get to the point where I get to use the best line in the entire book–"I don’t want to be a ninja! I want to be a veterinarian!"–which I have been gloating over since I wrote the initial synopsis, which then leads to:
"I like animals!"
"Everybody likes animals! Not everybody gets to be a ninja queen!"
Sometimes I have the best job in the world.
