SPAL: Today, Hair Ball and I will be participating in the Alex J. Cavanaugh's Insecure Writer's Group.
HB: Yeah. We hope to encourage, support, whine, beg…get some treats and belly rubs.
SPAL: In return, we’ll give you all some treats and belly rubs, too.
HB: Hey, pansy boy. Tell the nice people how much we hate The Great White Watery Abyss of Torture. We need everyone’s support to stop this madness that Mummsy does to us.
SPAL: Yeah. It makes my heart speed up, and my whole body shakes. Sometimes it gives me the poops.
HB: Me, too. Especially when she sprays us with water.
SPAL: And scrubs our faces.
HB: Yeah. And cleans out our ears.
SPAL: And she tells me I’m going to get brushed to get me into the torture chamber. She knows how much I love the brush.
HB: Well, she tricks me with cookies.
HB and SPAL: Nice people, we need your help. Please don’t let Mummsy put us in The Great White Watery Abyss of Torture ever again. Help us stop the madness.
SPAL: Speaking of Mummsy, she’s written herself into a corner again.
HB: I know. She’s one of those panster types.
SPAL: She’s been working on Book 2, in the Lila’s Journey Series, Killer Stilettos. When she wrote chapter forty-five, a character revealed something.
HB: What does that mean?
SPAL: It means she has now gone back to the very beginning of the story and is doing rewrites.
HB: Is chapter forty-five the last chapter in that book?
SPAL: No. The last chapter hasn’t been written. But Mummsy knows how it ends.
HB: How does she already know the end?
SPAL: Anyway, we’ll back tomorrow with Penny the Pawblisher.
HB: Yeah. She’s a superstar.
Lots of licks!
