Yes, the Golden Years, when a person can retire and just enjoy life. Or so some think. Yes, I'm retired from my teaching job and I do enjoy life. If I could only remember what I'm supposed to do each day, it would be great. I'm joking, sort of. But my memory sometimes does take a holiday. Like last week. I totally forgot about May IWSG day. Here are my excuses.
Tiger has been sick for a couple of weeks, and I stay busy trying to give him his medicine. Have you ever tried to make a cat swallow something he knows you want him to eat so he's determined not to eat it? If not, you have no idea the fun you're missing.
Patches, though she is well, has decided my lap is the perfect place for her nap. Have you ever tried to type with a cat lying on your lap? It can be done, but it's not easy.
Happy, the dog, has decided he doesn't like the food I've been feeding him, so he looks at it, sniffs it, and sticks up his nose and turns away. Have you ever had a dog that looked at you like he's starving, and thinking, shame on you, mom?
In the midst of all this excitement, I've been a bit under the weather and also working like crazy to finish my story, which I thought would be easy, until I started making changes. You know how that goes. One change leads to another, leads to another, etc. I think I'm almost there.
I hope I'm not breaking the rules by posting this late. If I am, please tell me and I'll delete. But here's a later Insecure Writer's Support Group for May.
May 1 question: What was an early experience where you learned that language had power?
I think when I started school and learned to listen to the teacher or I'd be in trouble.
The awesome co-hosts for the May 1 posting of the IWSG are Lee Lowery, Juneta Key, Yvonne Ventresca, and T. Powell Coltrin!
Ninja Alex J. Cavanaugh is the founder of IWSG.
And, have you read the newest Anthology? I have, and it's great.
