the cat who writes

Write, take naps, and take another nap

I am working on January First, my assistant Charlie has the day off

Charlie my assistant stayed awake until midnight last night. He was determined to see the New Year in. I wisely went to bed early. I needed a good nights sleep so I would be well rested to hunt mice this morning.

Charlie was still asleep when I left for work.  I don’t take holidays. There are always mice to catch. And, well, dry cat food is rather boring.  A nice warm mouse sounds like a great way to start the first day of a New Year.

My staff keep talking about their New Years Resolutions. They are going to walk every day, or write every day. I told them to add to their list, “Clean the litter box every day.”

I don’t make lists.  I just get up every day and work hard. I have dreams and books I want to write.  Every day I write a little.  At the end of this year, I will have a book.

I read  Jeff Goins blog.  He has helped me with my writing goals.  My staff took his On-line writing course, Tribe Writers. I am going to sign up the next time the class is available. I wonder if he has ever had a cat take his course?

How about you?

What will you do today?

What hole will you start to dig that will give you a swimming pool at the end of the year?
