Hide and sneak!

Bloggie friends!

Gum-gum wants to know where Charlie is.

Charlie says: Shhhh!


In the meantime, I (and a load of other fab peeps!!) won the "write a novel in one month" challenge (NaNoWriMo)! LOL!


Huge congrats to all and hope others join in next year too. It's totally crazy - I basically centred my story around one of the nastiest, wickedest, sneakiest most amoral characters I could dream up and had such fun with her for a month! LOL!
Now back to my regular blogging schedule time! 
Merry Christmas one and all!!

Sounds like you've got a great draft on your hands!! I had a ball with my nano too - what a great month!! :)

Brian said...

Congrats on finishing that writing marathon! Hey Gum-gum, good luck pal!

Mark said...

Ooooh congratulations on beating NaNoWriMo :D If it wasn't for his tail sticking out I wouldn't have been able to spot Charlie in that picture. Maybe with it snowing soon (hopefully) he can prove that nothing hides quite like a white cat in a snow storm. Providing he keeps his tail hidden.

Tamago said...

Gumtree, Charlie is right ther....oh no, I can't tell! You gotta find him yourself :-)
Congratulations on winning the novel challenge!! It sounds very hard but it also must be very rewarding. I wish you a wonderful new week and month ahead of you!

Concats on the big win :)

Charlie, come out and play with the little rascal! It'll be fun!

Helena said...

How fantastic you are for taking on a really, truly tough writing challenge and winning! I'm so happy for you. And yes, writing about sneaky bad girls can be so much fun.

Hope Gum-Gum finds Charlie. A few minutes ago my kitty got in my lap and, as usual, farted. But I love her anyway.

fairyhedgehog said...

Congratulations on winning the Nano challenge! Will you be taking advantage of the five free copies from CreateSpace?

Charlie's very good at hiding; it makes a cute picture.

Hi Old Kitty - well done on completing Nano - very well done .. I expect Charlie and Gumtree are glad you're back in the land of the living!! So pleased you've had fun with your character ... cheers Hilary

Jenny Woolf said...

Haha! that kind of person is always so much better fun to write about than the goody goodies!

Ellie Garratt said...

Congratulations!!! I'm so pleased for you. I love the sound of your character. You must give us a teaser.

Now where is Charlie?

Fuzzy Tales said...

You centered your character around my neighbour? LOL. Sorry, no, even she's far from that. :-)

Congrats to you all...and I hope Charlie gets some peace from Gumtree!

LindaC said...

Congratulations! I didn't take part because I knew I'd get too stressed trying to keep up so I have massive admiration for those of you who managed it! Enjoy the festive season - you deserve it now, I reckon!

Hannah and Lucy said...

GumGum we think that Charlie does protest too much and he thinks you are a great brother but he likes playing hard to get!!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

I am in overdrive joy for you. This is so much fun when a bloggy friend achieves. It's a vicarious high for the rest of us. Congratulations my dear friend.

Anne Gallagher said...

Congratulations! I can never do NaNo. Too much pressure. Love the pic of Gum Gum and Charlie. They seem to be getting along much better now.

Clarissa Draper said...

Wow, sounds like so much fun to write! I might try it again next year. Congrats for finishing.

Rene said...

Charlie is good at hiding, hee hee. That's a lot of words to write in one month, yikes!

LTM said...

How wonderful! You won NaNo!! That's fantastic! And it is hilarious to step into evil shoes sometimes, yes?

I LOL'd at Charlie hiding behind the curtain... *snort* :D <3

Teresa Ashby said...

Well done, clever Kitty - I won't shame myself by admitting how many (how few) words I wrote in November :-) x

Yay! Congrats to you! Knew you could do it and I hope you feel chuffed. :D
I'm sure Charlie is beside himself with pride.

cleemckenzie said...

Is Charlie in hiding again? Had to stop in and see what he was up to today. He's always a delight, even if I can only glimpse his rather magnificent tail.

Here's to surviving NaNo! Congrats.

I've just come back from being cut off from the internet and from my cat. She's sooo snuggly now. I think she missed me as much as I missed her.

I knew you could/would do it Kitty.
Congrats.

D..J. Kirkby said...

Gum Gum is adorable. Is Charlie tolerating him ok? Congratulations on winning NaNO. I had a rather spectacular fail at it this year - I blame having major surgery half way through.

Margo Berendsen said...

Oh so happy to hear you did NaNo too, just wish we had been buddies! And I had to laugh at your wicked character because my book/my subconscious created a real doozy of a bad guy too! I'm shocked!

Hilary said...

Congrats!
I am so proud of you!!! what a great accomplishment.. can't wait to read your work!

Marg said...

Wow, that is terrific news. You won. Whooooo Hooooo. Well done We knew you could do it.
We won't tell where you are Charlie. But I bet that kitten finds you soon. Get that tail in. Have a great day.
