Very happy to have completed the third draft of Project Artichoke. Diane read the second draft and gave me her thoughts on that, which helped inform the revisions in the new draft. Having left it alone for about a month I came back to it with fresh eyes, which is always useful. I’ve been using the time in between drafts to work up some illustrations – I’m hoping that a publisher will want me to do this for the entire book, but we’ll have to wait and see. You can see some of my work-in-progress pictures on my Instagram account. The third draft and the illustration samples went off to my agent last night, so all I can do now is sit and wait for feedback. Publishing is all about the waiting.
