Feline Companions and Loss

I am owned by cats. I currently have three, two older males and a younger female. While there are times their demand for attention is trying, like when I'm on deadline and editing a manuscript, I have to remind myself their time in my life is brief.

I've already said goodbye to three cats when their time came. Each of them are missed but life moves forward even with their loss. I will soon face the same again with my older boys, one of which his kidney's are failing and the other although healthy, is pretty much deaf and eventually, his health will fail. He's almost eighteen.

I was further reminded of this over the weekend when I visited friends. They have a cat who has mouth cancer and they have already scheduled a day off to take her to their vet and offer the final kindness. They are spending the last two days saying their goodbyes and absolutely spoiling her. They also recently lost one of their other feline companions.

I two, suffered cat losses a year and half apart. I know what they are going through and the mourning they have ahead of them. My two girls are missed, but they live on, at least in spirit, in my book Winter Awakening.

Sleepless Night

I enjoy my writer's group and was greatly disappointed when I couldn't attend - again. Unfortunately, I have a 'day' job and tend to still be sleeping when they meet. It doesn't help that work just changed my schedule due to the no longer needed tradition of Day Light Savings Time. Or that I'm at that age when I have sleepless nights. Like last night.

I do keep track of many on Facebook, along with my fellow Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror writers, both in the secular and Christian markets. It doesn't make me feel quite so alone and isolated.

Busy Week

This has been a busy week.

First off, I had to write the back cover copy for Different Dragons and get it emailed off to the publisher.

Second, the completed anthology had to be sent as well.

Third, I had a author's proof come in for Down the Rabbit Hole which contains my story 'Find of a Lifetime'.

Fourth and what I will be spending a great time of time on for the next couple of weeks, I'm editing a manuscript, a biography, for another writer.

Fifth and after I complete the above, I will start edits on Vol 2 of Different Dragons.
