NaNoMaxO and this and that...

Hi pals... A post to catch up...

First of all. Have a Happy Thanksgiving and I wanted to tell you what I'm thankful for...

  • Best of all, I'm thankful for all of you.
  • And I'm thankful for HH and her brother, Uncle Jim.
  • And a special Thanksgiving nod goes out to The Great Noodles because his human bean leaves him and his sister Lindsey with us when they go on vacation... So, I thank him for giving me lots of chuckles when gets right in HH's sleeping face at 4am and screams to wake her up... HEE HEE.. See ... it cracks me up even thinking about it.
And I am very thankful for all the folks (including all of you) who work so hard to find forever homes for dogs and cats. I've been putting the word out about the dogs and cats at the SPCA of North Brevard. They spend lots of time and money taking care of pets who need forever homes. I'm thankful for the work they do.

Now, about the title of this post... Many of you know that I was working on a book for National Novel Writing Month. Instead of HH, I was writing it this year and HH was typing it to save me from having sore paws.

Some of you noticed that I was keeping track of the number of words in the upper part of the right column. You may wonder why the number has been stuck around 9,000 for the last week... Well... HH lost the flash drive that had the book on it....

When she finally admitted the problem to me, I said (not too politely), "Oh nose...OH NOSE!!! And, I'm not proud of it, but I did pout for a while too... cuz I knew there was no way I could write a 50,000 word book by the end of November 30th.

I wasn't mad at HH for long though. I mean, I know how hard she has been working in the last two weeks with the book launch and the book fair and all... So, I forgave her... And I double forgave her when she came up with a great idea.

It's NaNoMaxO... Yes, well... all is not lost. HH has declared that because I'm a cat writing a 50,000word novel, we're going to have our own novel writing event. We're going to call it NaNoMaxO.

In NaNoMaxo... any cat or dog starting today... has until New Year's eve to finish the 50,000 words. So join in if you like... I'll be posting my numbers again, starting tomorrow. That's the story... and I'm off to write Chapter One... again... and, believe me, we're not saving it on a flash drive this time!

So, that's the rundown... Happy Thanksgiving to All!!!

Max, I am afraid I would not be as gracious as you if my human lost a flash drive with 9,000 words' worth of my sweat and brain power. I do like the idea of NaNoMaxO, though! Now, if only I could come up with a plot!
