Day Ten of Thirty Days of Writing, the kitten edition

Posted in Uncategorized at 9:24 am by z. l. sasnett

A kitten is chiefly remarkable for rushing about like mad at nothing whatever, and generally stopping before it gets there – Agnes Repplier

Today’s quote is brought to you by the initials B and S (for BooSocks).

There is nothing more delightful than watching a kitten do, well, do anything. Their curiosity is delightful. Their play is endearing, followed by some bloodletting but they’re so damn cute that bleeding seems so insignificant. Their sleep is so deep it explains how they are able to wake up and spring about as if they were windups with malfunctioning mechanisms.

Just so much fun to watch. I’m not getting much done while chasing behind BooSocks. Lucy the Dog is starting to tolerate her a little more now. They actually played together a little bit before it exhausted the poor pooch and she had to go have a lie down, while BooSocks bounced to the next Incredible New Find To Play With Weeee!

I’ll be sporting scratches and scars for a while, I suspect.

Day Ten is rather short since I’m not much for discussing current projects in detail. It sucks my creative energy away and then I’m just not inclined to write it. I’d rather be writing it than writing about it, at any rate.

10. What are some really weird situations your characters have been in? Everything from serious canon scenes to meme questions counts!

I’ll share one since it’s something I’m working on at the moment. It started as a small vignette, just an interesting scenario to clear my throat before writing one afternoon. I’m hoping to expand it into a short story to sell.

Jack (from my Adventures of Jack and Luke story idea) getting thrown in the dog pound while in wolf form and waking up in human form. Naked. With his best wolf-bud Luke staring at him through the fencing on the other side and debating on whether to give Jack a hand…paw in getting out.
