Sarah Sullivan's Post at the Writing Bug is for Those Addicted to Writing (Sort of)

I had to pass this one on. Sarah's post at Northern Colorado Writers blog The Writing Bug is funny, even though it felt as if she was talking about (making fun of) me.  (Just substitute "cat" for "dog" in the appropriate places).

I'm already a master at most of these techniques, even while I insist I write because I need to, want to, and can't not do it. As I get back into my current masterpiece-to-be (well, okay, not exactly a masterpiece, but a good idea nevertheless), I need to keep Sarah's post in mind.

Was she making fun of you and Katie Cat?

Patricia Stoltey said...

Probably not on purpose, Alex, but my cat is just as demanding, even about being taken out for a walk with harness and leash, as any dog I ever had. I didn't expect a cat would make such a great excuse to avoid working. :D

Thanks for the link. It was really amusing as I sit here with four tabs open on my computer.

thanks for the chuckle, Pat.

Not I have to go back to the social media stuff. Ugh.

I've often tried to explain to my husband whenever he urges me to put my feet up and relax that he got the defective model of wife with the malfunctioning "off" switch :)

Sarah Sullivan said...

Hi Patricia, what an honor to get a cameo on your blog!!! And now I found your blog which is even better. And just for the record, I was definitely NOT making fun of you and Katie Cat!!! Just myself... : )

Susan, Kay, and Eileen -- We really are birds of a feather.

Hi Sarah -- I was hoping you'd drop by. I was pretty sure you didn't know about all my bad habits and exceptional excuses, but your post really hit home. Apparently I'm not alone. :D
