Romeo on Writing

My absence must be explained immediately.

I have had a birthday since I last accessed the computer to post my highly-opinionated stance on all of this… writing.

I, Romeo Calhoun, am now one and a half years old humanly speaking, and anywhere between 14 to 24 in cat years (fellow kittizens, you know exactly what I’m talking about).

Seeing as I have grown, it is now much harder to get my paws on this computer without waking up the sleeping humans. Apparently, they can hear me coming around the corner due to the hardwood floors and my claws.

That is quite the inconvenience.

Also, much to my demise (and more inconvenience), hardware was installed on the laptop that prevented me from logging into anything. Thus, no blog posts from me!

This image came up whenever I made an attempt at blogging:

ERROR 505

It was a monstrosity! Blocking the cat from posting with a MEME PICTURE?

I am disgusted.

But, now I am back, I vanquished the evil hardware, and I am hopeful that we will have much more time to discuss feline matters. The wasted time can be made up, am I right, kitties?

I myself am no longer a kitty. I am nearly a full-grown cat, and it is beneath me to use the title kitten any longer (no offense to my younger readers out there).

So for now, farewell from

Romeo Calhoun

Overly-Protective Writers?

This is what happens when do not wish to lose any part of our manuscript and staunchly decide to keep every new version of the story and hope and wish and PRAY something awful doesn’t happen to it.

(We did eventually decide to keep only two copies, so it’s all good. Our protectiveness has mellowed out a bit.)

Also, check out copy two, finished at 4:17 in the morning.

We always say we write better when tired… that’s when the best ideas come anyway…
