Morning Meditation

The sun has just come up.  My wrap covers my nightgown and I slip outside.  The cats follow.  The birds are awake and gossiping to each other and planning out their day.  The big cat stalks them.  The kitten chitters at them.  But, it's still to cold to actually give chase.  Instead, they sit on either side of me, soaking up the sun.  First the left side, then the right.  Then, the tummy gets exposed to the warmth that grows ever stronger.  Cats must be solar powered.

Still Going ...

I am still making good progress on my NaNoWriMo novel.  The word count is right on schedule.  I'm worried that the whole thing is predictable and boring.  Part of me suspects that being in the story day in and day out almost every day makes it seem predictable - because I know what is going to happen.  Or, at least I think I do.

Hard to tell with fiction.  Anyway, I uploaded a sample of my writing to this Website.  The analysis is supposed to tell you whose writing style yours most resembles.  Mine is Dan Brown.  Wow!  I love his work!  I didn't realize that my writer's voice is similar to his.  Very humbling.

Blogging isn't getting this thing written, so off I go, again ... to Mars.
