Being the worst day on this planet for me, I thought I’d look towards brighter and better things.
Yesterday I dashed off a 942-word story to send to the 100 Stories for Haiti (thanks to womagwriter and fairyhedgehog blogs for this info) project. The idea is to create an anthology of 100 chosen stories from submissions with all proceeds to go the Red Cross.
The deadline being today, I was up burning the after midnight oil near enough cross-eyed and trying to prop my head from drooping.
It was very hard trying to think up a story full of hope and joy at that time! I know there will be other better stories than mine but it gave me a sense of purpose for a few hours.
Then there’s the Cat.
For the first time in a long, long time, she actually played with The String. It was all of five seconds but she definitely followed The String as I dangled it in front of her. Better still, she pounced!
I didn’t think she’d go for it but she was definitely showing an interest in her catnip toys so I thought I’d try to entice her with her one and only favourite toy.
And I’m so glad I did.
So all in all today’s Monday’s not starting off too badly.
But it’s still the worst day on this planet for me.
