Cats and Writing and Blogging

I've been working with the kittens from the Pat Brody Shelter for Cats They are a lot of fun.

Tia offered fantasy advice review comments on her blog spot:
I really enjoy reading Tia's blog in general. She has a fun and creative style.
Her comments motivate me to write some more, however, I haven't had a chance between work, holiday time, and the kittens. Of course, there is also Bessie, my cat.

I'm considering changing the next in the series to Into This Mind in past tense. I'll have to think some more about it. The next in the series is an even stronger story where Jena meets some others like her.

Foster cats, writing, skating and skiing

The little foster kittens are keeping me busy. Additionally, I need to make sure the reigning Queen Cat doesn't feel slighted. As for writing, skating and skiing well, I haven't had much time for any of them! But life is good spending time for 'others'. Ok, in this case the 'others' are cats, but I believe the human race has a responsibility to care for the pets we create and some abandonned.
The problem with having a book published is that one spends so much time thinking of themselves and trying to promote themselves, it can be rather empty!

As for skiing, well, I can't really get any skiing in yet anyhow - no snow!

I might go to the Great EsSkate in 2008. I've been thinking of it for years, but I enjoy my winter sports so I'm not so motivated to head south in the winter time. But the Great EsSkate (weekend skate in Miami) is run by a great group of people for a charitable cause. If you inline skate and want a great party weekend, check it out.

Doing for others!

The best way to heal is to do for others, in this case, the 'others' are cats. Nick and I are foster parents to 4 kittens from the Pat Brody Shelter for Cats.
Can't adopt, consider donating!

work on my next novel

I'm considering rewriting the next in the "Into This Mind" series in 3rd person. I feel I must write in first person present tense because the first one was written that way, but I have some ideas for switching.

Thanks to Tia at:

Next in the Series

I've been working on the next in the series for Into This Mind. It's really slow going and I'm frustrated at how quickly the week goes by and I haven't gotten anymore writing in. I was unemployeed when I wrote the first book, so I was able to stay focused and get it done. How do we strike a balance between enjoying some relaxation, working, chores and writing?

New Blog

I've enjoyed reading blogs, so I've started one!
Are you fond of hip-hop?
How about techno?
Where's your favorite place to skate? Ski?
