I am writing a childrens/middlegrade/young adult novel (not sure which yet -- I guess I'll have to decide -- it'll determine whether or not I leave the words "holy crap" in a scene where a whle explodes). Just for the exercize of accomplishing something. It has an alpaca in it, but I am starting to think the Alapca wil have to fall by the wayside as a prominent character. Alpacas don't swim very well, and the whole book is set at sea.
But I did draw an alpaca in Photoshop!
