Days 12-14

I took a NaNo break for most of the weekend, opting instead to spend some quality time helping my mother-in-law paint a room in their house. Hubby and I also acquired a new-to-us car, which we picked up Saturday night.

Sunday, however, I was able to boost my wordcount to 24, 187 (almost halfway!), but more importantly had a MAJOR. PLOT. REVELATION! Yays. Completely different direction from my original idea, and the one that's now on my Nano page, but so, so much better. Even my hubby liked it, and he's my tough critic.

However, when I went to jot down the basic idea, kitty Mack didn't want me to. Instead, this is what happened:

hm, now I'm not convinced who writes your stories, the kitten or you?

Linda G. said...

Ha! Everyone's a critic. ;)

Erica Mitchell said...

LOL too cute. Congrats on a plot revelation and the new-to-you car :)

Crystal Cook said...

Look at those cute kitties! And YAY for the plot revelation!! :)

Sarah Ahiers said...

Awww! I want him!

And is it the kitteh who noms the pen? Or the pen who noms the kitteh?

Yeah. Think about that!

Meredith said...

Hahaha, aww! So cute! Congrats on the new plot idea! I love that feeling :)

Teri Anne Stanley said...

If you'd stop using that catnip ink, you wouldn't have these problems. I can't seem to part with my liversnap flavored mouse pad, however (pictures of my dog trying to distract me to follow...)
congrats on the word count!

Old Kitty said...

Awwww lovely Mack!!! He wants to Nano too!! Bless him!! Awwwww!!!

Yay for your half-way point and plot breakthrough!!!

Take care

Lola Sharp said...

Mack had his own writing breakthrough.

Yay on your revelation. :)

Sorry I've been MIA...I'm off to catch up with you via email.

Maybe Mack had something to say!
And we are in sync with our NaNo writing, Summer.

Colene Murphy said...

I agree, Mack had some ideas you were supposed to be jotting down for him. What a little thinker. SO cute!

Tiffany Neal said...

Yay for plot revelations and YAY for Monster Kitty trying to prevent you from recording those major plot revelations.


And congrats on the word count.

Abby Minard said...

Aw, SO cute! My dog does that. He'll lay his whole head across my laptop so I can write. Congrats on the wordcount!

Melissa said...

Such adorable pictures of your cat. I also love the new background!

Christine Danek said...

Congrats on the revelation. That cat is too gosh darn cute.
Love the new background even though I don't like snow. :)
Hope you are well.

I think Mack and Roo must be related. She will lay across my arm and when I type, she gets bobbed up and down...and she stays where she is.

Congrats on the new to you car and I love to paint, you should have given me a hollar! =P

Um, I am TOTALLY loving the snowy background! I wanna change mine now!

Way to go on the word count, too!

Happy early Thanksgiving!
