The Cat Who Writes™

I am a cat. I write.

Today I share my cat writing wisdom on The Write Practice

Good Afternoon my dear friends,

I am delighted to be sharing my writing wisdom today at The Write Practice. I have a regular job there as a columnist on the second and fourth Wednesday of the month. Today’s article is called. Why Writing Like a Cat Will Make You a Better Writer

I will include the first two paragraphs of my article here, to entice you to read the rest at The Write Practice. Joe Bunting is my editor, and he does a wonderful job editing my work.


I am going to write from the perspective of a human.


I know what it is like to be a cat. Because, I am a cat. I know what is like to eat dry cat food on the floor.  I know what it is like to eat grass.  I know what it is like to not have any thumbs and wait for someone to open the door or a can of food for me.

A story becomes alive in the details. Yet, often we take our own perspective for granted. We make assumptions about the worldview of the reader. I often forget the reader can not visualize what I am imagining, and I don’t put in enough details to clearly describe what is happening in the story.

All my best,

Love Pooh
