my babies

November 17, 2011 Posted by the writer

Yesterday I Skyped with the individual presently minding the puppies in my absence. It made me sad family. Peanut was so sad, she wasn’t even sleeping beside the person looking after her – she was down the hallway by herself. Henry is usually in decent spirits if someone is petting him.

When the three of us are together, we never separate. They both sleep on my lap when I write. They curl up at the foot of my bed at night.

Certain things motivate and inspire me, to the point of a breakthrough moment.

After I spent twenty minutes blinking back tears looking at my two babies who turn five in March, something not quite familiar overcame me. So unfamiliar, I’m not sure if I can even identify it. Whatever it was resulted in a quick head shake, a final hard squint to slow Niagara Falls, and a forced “Yeah thanks for watching them, speak in a few weeks.”

Then I started writing. And writing.

I am happy with now the novel is turning out. I spent 23 months trying to get to this town to do this book, because I know it’s what I’m supposed to do – and now I am literally what is to me, one of the most ideal place to make this happen.

I have tens of thousands of words. I have the babies waiting for me to sort out a yard for them.

I’m working like a crazy person blog family. Can’t stop now.

one year. still booking.

I’m going to talk about book more today, dear cult collective.

As much as I am nearly blindsided by my present surroundings and scenario, my focus diligently remains in one direction: Book.

I am basically in the center of many-a-Writer’s wet dream at the moment. Dead smack in the middle of Manhattan. Stunning studio space with views it would take a few lifetimes to write about. Sure, my personal life is fucked…

But what better time to get to work? And besides, it’s for the puppies after all.

The apartment mantra did wonders. I need to start on the book / farm house / fly puppies to the US mantras.

… those ones are going to take a bit longer to manifest.

Good thing I’m focussed. I’ve got one year.

I pieced together a bit of book this weekend Blog Family!

I stomped around the woods where I grew up. I cackled with my mother and sisters and yelled at the news with my father.

I came across writing books from 2002 and 2003. I would never want to be in a relationship with a Writer. (more…)

Dear Sir Richard Charles Nicholas Branson

My name is Gretchen Cello and you may have seen me hitting you off on Twitter over the past few days. I am writing because I need some aircraft assistance and thought, who better to ask than a ruler of the sky such as yourself.

So here’s the thing, according to laws of us common-folk, the only way I can get my two puppies from Australia to New York City is to check them as luggage. This involves putting them in two separate crates and stashing them away in the icy darkness of baggage land for a twenty-some odd hour flight… I think you could do something about this.

Now I’m sure you’re wondering, “Why would I?”

Top Ten Reasons Why Richard Branson Should Help Me

Not Have To Check The Puppies Like Baggage

10. You genuinely seem like a friendly, reasonable chap.

9. You appreciate entrepreneurial spirit… this is my 687th consecutive blog post with no sign of stopping. Writers, after all, are supposed to write… Right?

8. I’m cute and I know you fancy cute girls because I’ve seen your flight attendants. (more…)

I was stressed today and planned on staying that way.

However, there were a number of factors attempting to smash my state of strife. There were my girls refilling my vodka in the name of it being Friday. There were friends in foreign countries giggling over the phone at me with irresistible “What?“s

But I was determined blog family. (more…)
