Writing and My Kitten

This is Jaspurr, my distraction. As you can see (or not), he is laying next to The Golden Compass and Catching Fire as to say, "How can you possibly want to read these when I'm so fun and cute?" He's right, and I have only read the first page of The Golden Compass though I loved the film! And the prequal to Catching Fire was read Pre-Jaspurr. Yes, I have always been a sucker for the furry beings! Especially my little Jaspurr who is now the only child after being apart of a litter of five. He has adjusted well and now walks over my computer keys when I'm trying to write and lounges on my manuscript when I'm trying to transfer my edits from the hard copy to the computer copy. Somehow, I'll get this submission done though sleep deprived from Jaspurr's 5am fascination with my hair! I got this blog done during his evening cat nap- time to wake him up so I can sleep through the night and early morning without my hair ambushed.

Query to Set Sail

The jacketflap synopsis and query letter writing adventure has ended. Submission packet is ready to set sail. It will cruise along the snail mail sea and should reach port early next week. Cannonballing into my next agent submission (different format), is planned to deport by the end of May, if I don't hit rocky waters. At the same time, formulations for my other books bubble in my head. One is a YA set in tornado alley and the other is a MG that will be set in either Plymouth or Cornwall, England. All this writing to do with a new distraction in my life, Jaspurr our fun, cute and sweet eight week old kitten. It's a good thing he can't reach my desk, yet!
