Dragons Beware!

The big day is here.

Rafael and I work in TV so we’re used to getting comments.  I’m always getting notes from Head Writers, Executive Producers, Network Executives, Animators, other writers, research consultants, my wife, my children, random people I meet on the subway. I’m used to it. No big deal.

But Claudette is a little different.

We sent the rough pages of our second book to our wonderful,  talented editor, Mark Siegel.  I’ll confess, I was very nervous.  Here’s why:  when Rafael and I are working together, once everyone’s on board with the outline, we don’t share much of what we’re doing with anyone else as we write and draw the book.  I’m writing for Rafael and he’s drawing for me.  We’re completely wrapped up in the world of Claudette, but there’s always a nagging question in the back of my mind:  are we on the right track or wrong track?  Waiting for Claudette comments can stress me out more than anything I write for TV.

So this week we talked to our editor after he’d seen our pages.  He had comments, all very useful, insightful, and will make the book far  better, however, most importantly for me — it’s looking like we’re on the right track.

Whew!
