Cats and Editing Don’t Mix

Did I mention I have a kitten? Internet, meet Bowie!


(‘Scuse the mess.)

I finished my content edits for Circus in a Shot Glass (coming out from Clean Reads later this year) before Bowie arrived. Line edits (fixing punctuation, grammar, spelling, etc.) came after Bowie arrived and, well…things were interesting, to say the least. Trying to concentrate on what my editor wanted me to do while Cricket chased the kitten around my ankles was a challenge. I survived…I think. Haven’t heard the verdict on what I turned in to my editor yet.

The mysterious “they” say the biggest distraction writers need to overcome is the internet. I would add “separating fighting cats” as a close second.
