Hello, readers. It's Friday, and that means it's time for the weekly wrap up. I promised myself that I would show a new photo this week. But as it is I've only taken pictures of my cats. Nothing wrong with showing cat pictures, but I can't show one cat without showing the other. This is… Continue reading The Week In Review
Hi, everyone. We've made to tax day here in the United States. Time for some to cry (those who have to pay) and time for some to rejoice (if they're getting a refund). It's also a time when tax accountants, such as my friend Dave, to take a much-needed break. Dave refers to himself as… Continue reading Confessions of a Cat Lover

I hope you will forgive the sporadic posts this month—and another cat story. The 31-day writing challenge, as well as our cat saga, has taken quite a bit of my time this month.

I was full of enthusiasm when I began the 500-word challenge on January 1. The first few days, words flowed from my head onto the keyboard. I thought anyone could write 500 unedited words in thirty minutes or less. Yesterday, I didn’t feel like writing.

Jeff Goins My 500 Word writing challenge has given me the opportunity to write freely. Some things I may never use, but today, my writing took a bit different direction.
