Living with a children's author isn't as easy as it looks!


She’s doing it. She’s writing about a dragon! And here I am with no toy dragon to tear to pieces to show my strength and bravery! Ugh. This could mean trouble.

Mom is working on her 12×12 manuscript for April. It’s called Dragon Sandwich. One thing I know about this story is: Sandwiches are delicious. I never actually ate one, but sometimes Mom gives me a tiny piece of cheese or a tiny piece of bread or lets me lick the mayo from the butter knife. That’s something like a sandwich, and m-m-m! It is yummy.

Mom is putting the story together like a sandwich. A really big, really high, really stuffed-with-goodies sandwich. It’s not made of cheese and bread and mayo. Instead, it’s got a rude princess, a nervous chef, a friendly dragon, some frightened servants, a castle, and a forest. There are some yucky foods and some yummy foods in the story, plus a lesson, a surprise, and some bacon.

Soon Mom will bring this story to her writing group named DavidLaurieandOtherDavid. They will tell Mom what to change in the story and what to leave the same. Maybe they will tell her to buy me a toy dragon or give me a sandwich.

Β Meanwhile, I’ll sit here and look threatening with my squirrel, Β in case a dragon is watching.

Well, maybe not “threatening”…..

    • Thanks, AngelsWhisper. There are some yummy sandwiches mentioned in the story. Especially the one made of dandelion petals, turkey feet, dust bunnies, and grape jam. I have eaten a few of those things (not the turkey feet, but I’m hoping!)!
