Today's post is a random mix-up of life and writing and one of my all-time favorite movie clips...which has to do with writing. In a way.
1. I'm 98% sure that I'm going to be returning to work after what will be 11 long months on worker's comp. This should be happening in July, so keep your fingers crossed for me. If it all works out, you'll soon be regaled by stories of puppies, kittens, and incompetent buffoons (aka my coworkers).
2. Sigo Amigo seemed to be feeling better yesterday, so I took her down to the shelter where I work (see above) to get her Feline Leukemia/ Feline Immunodeficiency Virus combo test. I held my breath for 10 long minutes, but she was negative! Yay! So then we gave her her first round of booster shots and the whole flea/tick/hookworm/roundworm/tapeworm song-and-dance. She also had her first interaction with another kitten, and it was pretty amusing. But the best news of all is that my parents are going to take her :-)
PSA: Did you know that cats can also get heartworms? As of now, heartworms in cats is untreatable, so if you have an outdoor kitty, do him/her a favor and give them heartworm protection.
3. I had some great breakthroughs in my WIP yesterday. I know where I was heading, but the clouds opened up and a voice that sounded suspiciously like Samuel L. Jackson started talking to me about the story. So I diligently transcribed his words on my whiteboard, and today I'll be trying to write, even though lately all my writing attempts have felt pretty much like this:
Note: This is from Pulp Fiction, so it's full of hilarious swears. Watch at your own discretion.
Jules is my novel, Marsellus Wallace is my plot, and I am the poor dude in the chair:
I can't embed, but please follow the link and watch with my heading in mind. :-)
Ever felt like this? :-)
