the cat who writes

Write, take naps, and take another nap


Hello, I am Harper, Harper Hodges. I am a cat.

Pooh Hodges was the original cat who writes. He died on April 1st, 2015. Yes, I know. April Fool’s Day, but it is no joke.

I put his original words in a quote box at the bottom of this page.

Now I am “The cat who writes.” I don’t know how to read yet. But Mrs. Hodges told me to just talk to her and she would type for me.

All my best.

Love Harper

This is Pooh’s Story

I am the cat who writes.

I write about the world from a cat’s perspective. Because I am a cat, after all.  Would you expect me to write from the perspective of a dog?  Silly, dogs are not as smart as cats.

My name is Pooh. Pooh Hodges. My full name is Winnie The Pooh Hodges. My friends call me Pooh. I spell my name with an H on the end.

I am a writer.

I have had a hard life. Born to a single mother in a back alley in Wisconsin. I never knew my father. My sister died young. I am writing my story.

I dictate and one of my staff  types.

She is taking an eight week, On line writing course, Tribewriters by Jeff Goins.  All she does is talk about Goins.  Goins said this. Goins said that. Goins said that writing doesn’t have to be lonely. Goins said I can build a community. Goins said I can develop new habits. Goins said to get practical. Goins said find your tribe. Goins said to write in public.

I am taking Goins advice and writing in public.
