I’d worked on a story for a couple of years that my former agent loved and that got complimentary rejections and even a Revise & Resubmit from publishers. Well, it was doomed to die a sad and unheroic death when the agent abruptly quit the business. But it is such a fun story that my online critique group, the fabulous Penguins, insisted I completely revamp it and start submitting it again.
So I did. And I’m now working on a new dummy for it. These are the character roughs that I sketched while Son2 and I were watching the thermodynamics lecture today.
