I finished the pirate book last night. I feel really good about it and I really enjoyed doing it. I'm glad it's done though, it's a good feeling to finish up a project and start thinking about what's next. Today is my first real day off in four months. It's taken four months each to do the three picture books I've finished. I'm relaxing today, between Christmas parties I have a bunch of stuff I'd like to do. My next book, Sandcastles and Snowmen is scheduled to be done for May so I can breath easy for a while.
