Little helpers

Today I finished my life-writing assignment : 2000 words - just in time for this week's deadline. Yay.

Only two more course assignments to go.

And I think I get a Certificate of Attendance! LOL! (kidding - it's for a degree, honest!).

Anyway, I owe my sudden unblocking of writer's block to these wonderful things:

A generous dollop of this:



and some of these:

And a few fun inspirational things going on in the blog world:

hampshireflyer's short story is about to be published in a forthcoming issue here .

KarenG has a new fab blog "From the Shadows to the Page" devoted to life-writing and all things auto-biographical.

A very short flash story about an eternal optimist here from kate m that made my day.

Amy's House of Cats' Virgil is gonna rumble on the 8th April in the Kitty Fight Club (oh yes!) so big cheers to him! What a manly mancat he is!

Buddy from Jan's Funny Farm
(and I think Brian too?) have entered a really fun easter contest here where all things bunny and easter-like things are celebrated in surreal ways.

Love Meow has secured an interview with Maru the legendary box cat!

And Spring is firmly esconced in Kim's Musings on a Small Life part of the world - that's Canada to you and me. I mean look at that Giant Moth!

Of course there's the lovely Charlie as always, although today he had to wait patiently for me to play with him!


"Is she ever going to get off the pc and move Mr MacDoonagoogle already?"

Have a lovely Wednesday everyone!

Congrats on finishing the assignment! 2000 words is a lot - I am very impressed! But I bet Charlie is extra happy so that you can play with him now - he looks so adorable in that picture!

Theresa Milstein said...

Yay to you for your "Certificate of Attendance". Only two more assignments to go? Good for you!

Muse Charlie can't complain too much if you're on the PC writing.

Yay also to Hampshireflyer.

If you keep showing off your baking skills (well, not the ones from the other day), I may have to come visit. You can give me pointers because all of my baked goods come out dry.

Ann said...

Well done. You got it finished. The muse is working. Along with all the other little incentives. Charlie looks delighted.

Love Meow said...

Coffee and muffins work wonders. :)

Thanks for mentioning the Maru interview. :) Maru posted a link back on his blog today and that made me so happy. I spent hours looking at Maru's pictures the other day, now when I look at Jackie, I think he is Maru. They do look alike... right?

KarenG said...

Good luck on your assignment! I bet it is so good. Thanks for the mention of my new blog!

Kea said...

Congratulations on completing your assignment! This is fantastic. Hurrah for the return of your Muse. Hurrah for Charlie too! :-)

And a thank you for mention of my personal blog.

Oh, I can imagine that coffee is divine. Ditto for the muffins. I had to give up coffee last summer and miss that morning jolt--with coffee cream!

Brian said...

Yep, I entered that contest too! Hey, I think it really was the catnip latte that broke the block free!

Marg said...

A big congrats on finishing your assignment. Glad you had so many inspirations to push you on. Of course the biggest one is that good kitty Charlie. He is looking very patient in that picture waiting for you to play with him. Have a wonderful day.

Hannah and Lucy said...

2000 words - I don't think we know that many - just treats, dinner, naps and all the important kitty vocabulary.
Mr MacDoonagoogle is waiting patiently for Charlie and you to play with him.

Joanne Fox said...

I have given you a Beautiful Blogger Award for your entertaining blog and lovely photos. See mine for the full story!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Old Kitty, when I don't see Charlie's tail he looks exactly like my buddy, Bo! :-)

Glad you finished your assignment in time! I'm sure that is a good feeling.

Thanks for all the delightful links to look at ... wish I had one of your muffins to eat while I looked at them ...smile
