Would you believe...

I was looking for an old query letter of mine that predates this computer and sent me the dreaded "paper files." And looking through there, I found a picture book manuscript I had completely forgotten about.

It's not great or nothing, mind you, but the fact that I completely erased it from memory seemed highly unfair - it had no bad history nor was it deserving of such a fate.

Does this happen to you? Do you run into material that you are surprised to find? And is any of it ever fabulous? Cuz, like, if it is... I'm gonna dig some more!

I never find anything completed and fabulous. But every once in a while, I find some tidbit so good I wonder, "How did I write that?" Good luck in your hunting!

Russ gets mad when I go through old stuff and throw it away. But I don't throw all of it away. There's usually something I've forgotten that has a lot of potential.
