Just some updates on previous posts:

1) Was downtown yesterday, and saw that the hawk silhouettes are still on the Stock Exchange windows. It's been about 20 years since I wrote that letter, so that's kind of cool.

2) My friend, Carolyn, has an update on the dog she found during the California fires. You can read all about it here (plus some great pics).

3) Still searching for the perfect wide-enough-for-whiskers bowl.

4) Have only written 4,200 words on my WIP. Since I'd like to write 1,000 each day this month, I appear to running behind. I was having trouble getting into my lackluster characters, but had an "aha" moment on the train yesterday. Hopefully, I'll be able to run with it.

Love the aha moments! I don't have them nearly enough. Congrats on 4,200 words.

Aren't aha moments the best? People are always surprised that I don't have the story plotted out from the moment I set pen to paper (or hands to keyboard), but really, most of what happens in a story is as much of a surprise to me as it is to anyone else. I live for those aha! moments! Congrats and enjoy the ride.

Thanks, Brenda and Angst. May your days be filled with many "Aha" moments.

Keep writing. Even if you don't always hit 1K/day, every word you write is a word more you had before.

I gave up on whisker-perfect bowls. I went to the Goodwill and bought plates for 25 cents a pop, and that's what the feline deities eat off of now.

Their water bowl is a dog-sized ceramic bowl with the NY Rangers logo on it! ;)

Thanks for the encouragement and suggestions, Devon.

Thanks for the link, Lynn.

I am so glad to hear the hawks are still up on the windows. I wish I had seen them when I was in Toronto.

Here's to the words, but more to the story.

NT--Aye, aye, sir.

Carolyn--next time you're in Toronto, I'll take you around to see them.
