Snippet Sunday

EEK! Forgot yesterday was Sunday.  Thanks mindseas for putting up your snippet and reminding me to post, albeit a day late. I have a good excuse for not being online yesterday, but that will be another post, perhaps tomorrow.

In the meantime, a snippet from what I've been working on this week. Not Witherwilds, but a children's story that I promised Julien I would finish before year's end.  I've got the story almost hammered out. Then it will be time for illustrations.



A donkey hung its head over the fence of its pasture. “Those slippers would keep my hooves nice and warm this winter.”

“Snow would ruin the slippers,” answered the queen. “And you have four hooves. Two slippers would do you no good.”

The donkey heehawed. “If you lend me the slippers, I can use them to keep my ears warm. That will be perfect. I have four hooves but only two ears.”

“And very fine ears they are.”

“Long and fluffy, everything an ear should be,” agreed the donkey. “The slippers, which are too big for the princess, will fit them perfectly.”

Cute! Reminds me of "Little Black Sambo."

I've heard of Little Black Sambo, but I don't know if I "know" it.

Awww! I'm already looking forward to seeing the finished article with illustrations ;0)

PS: Did you get my second email? I sent it from my phone - my gmail addy - so it may have ended up in your spam folder. Sorry to hear that you and the sprout have been ill and hoping that you're both fully recovered now.

Sorry I have responded sooner. I don't think I got your message. I can't find it, and I checked in the spam folder. Nothing. :(

Sadly, I kept getting one cold after another, and the Sprout, after getting well, has now come down with something else. She is in the other room, crying in her sleep now. :( It is too early for me to give her more meds. :(

As for the illustrations: I need to get busy. OH, wait. That is the problem. I'm already busy. :P

It's charming, and knowing your drawing prowess, I can't wait to see the illustrations.

I've been doing studies, but I still haven't hit upon a style yet...
