Thinking Differently

Thinking Differently

It’s been interesting how the long-term thinking topic has come up a lot this last week. So going to talk a little about that in the topic above.


The Day

Made it up to WMG offices to work for a short time there before the 2 p.m. writer’s lunch. It was a good one, with a number of the writers from the romance workshop staying over.

Then after a short run to the store for cat supplies, I worked in my office with the little new cat sleeping in Allyson’s office.

Finally, around 6 p.m. I loaded all the cat stuff up in my van and then loaded the little girl kitty and headed for home. Kris and I got her settled in two large rooms with our television in them just fine.

She has a new cat bed (which she loved and took a nap in), lots of food and things. Tonight, she was on Kris’s lap watching television, then she fell asleep on my lap watching television.

She is still a long ways from healthy, still all skin and bones since just a couple days ago she was about to starve to death. But we will take care of her. It will be a slow recovery.

Also tonight I did all the workshop assignments and took a long nap. No real writing until tomorrow.
