Munchkins = activators; Camp Swampy = inhibitor

It was a good weekend. I saw the munchkins on Friday night and I was activated to spend most of Saturday writing. I saw them again on Sunday and I came home and wrote some more – except for the hour I spent watching “Big Brother,” which I chalked up to research.

Today I’m breathing the stale air at Camp Swampy and I’m inhibited. I was actually semi-comatose until the guy in the next cubicle yelled “roach,” and I jumped up instantly alert. Now I’m too busy scratching and looking around my desk to write anything.

They say the three most important things in real estate are location, location, location. It’s also true for writing. I am so ready to retire.

And before you chastise me, I’m not wasting taxpayer’s money. I’m still entitled to lunch and 2 breaks and I prefer writing to smoking or playing Solitaire on the computer.

So there’s my rant for today and now for the good news.

I’m excited to tell you the first reviews are in for “A Cup of Comfort for Cat Lovers” and there’re all 5 Star plaudits!

“Cup of Comfort for Cat Lovers is a delightful anthology…”

“Some made me laugh and some brought a tear to my eye but all of them were very enjoyable.”

“I was in dire need of a "Cup of Comfort" to recharge my affection for my 3 cats and that is just what I got.”

“The fifty stories are a fairly quick read and will leave you wishing for fifty more.”

If you’ve read the book I hope you’ll add your thoughts on

Cup of Comfort for Cat Lovers: Stories that celebrate our feline friends (Cup of Comfort)

And if you haven’t there’s still time to enter my contest at and win a free copy. The deadline is July 31.
