Just completed: The first draft of my first novel. 50,003 words, 176 pages.I've written texts all my life, and have always been complimented on them, but they were always short and usually rants. (Howard Post told me, "Man, you can write, but you write about SHEE-IT!") This is the most "sustained" fiction I've ever written. Why? Because I wanted to do something new with my time, and communicate in a way that didn't involve drawing a line. I haven't read it all the way through yet, and I don't know what my verdict will be. But I've done it! IT'S MINE, GODDAM IT, IT'S MINE!!

Three of my favorites, all posted on Devon Baxter's chronological You Tube page, Terry Toons. 

THE GLASS SLIPPER. I hadn't watched it in a good long while. It's very funny, and has a somewhat sophisticated touch for a Terrytoon. Amazingly, no gags ripped from other Cinderella cartoons.

ALL ABOUT DOGS. One of the best Terry spot gag cartoons. Rivals the other studios in a difficult genre.

MAGPIE MADNESS. To me, it's the best "plotline" Heckle & Jeckle ever had.
