Bennett Charles, my middle cat, is amazing.  He loves attention, both giving and receiving it.  P1140465Doesn’t matter that I’m rushed to get out the door to the day job or that I’m struggling with writing a difficult scene but have just about got it right.  Oh, no.  He’s going to make sure his peeps remember we live in his world.  🙂

As I tackled my WIP this week with him draped over one arm as I typed – seriously – I realized he’s been teaching me a lesson all this time.  Persistence gains results.  P1140297For instance, no matter how many times I close the door to my office, he doesn’t take “no” for an answer.  He bangs on that sucker until I capitulate and let him in.  Like now.  *Sigh*

I’ve received multiple rejections from publishers over the years (what writer hasn’t?), and Bennett’s lesson this week really hit home.  Gotta stay persistent. . ..Gotta stay the course. . . ..Gotta keep honing craft to become a better writer.  Cuz if you don’t keep knocking, no one will know you’re there.

Happy writing!
