This week I have been relatively good. I have edited some chapters of "The Cosy Knave", polished a query, added a couple of hundred words to "The Halloween Murderer" and written a new flash fiction story.
Catastrophe (a flash fiction story with hardly any fish but plenty of cats):
"The crisis hit the area hard, and when the landlord raised the rent a notch or two, she was forced to give up the first-class cat fodder she used to spoil her darlings with. They stuck up their triangular faces at first, but after a few days they seemed to accept the second-rate bill of fare."

Dorte - I'm glad you've been so productive! And I love those sentences. They convey so very well the role the cats play...
I admire your productivity. After only four days away, I was so busy catching up that I felt like a dog chasing its tail.
Yes, you have certinly been working hard.
Amazing how much you can say using so few words. I loved your two sentences.
I'm so amazed how fast you write short stories. I want to buy both of your collections. Great flash--love your choice of words.
I really like your two (or well, three) sentences - makes me wanna read the whole story.
You've been a busy woman!
I enjoyed your two sentences...even if I am a "dog person".
Margot: you have a good point about the cats there ;)
Rural View (Barbara, is that right?): I take care only to mention my productivity when I *have* been good ;)
Tracy: this little story just appeared, and I am rather pleased with it.
Clarissa: I think I did well, but to put it into perspective, Catastrope was only 400 words - a *very* short story.
Louise: thank you. I selected a bit I hoped would make you curious.
Kelly: one might disguss if this story is really for cat persons. Perhaps not ;)
This was my best week ever for acceptances: three. However I did not write a blasted word.
Patti: I wouldn´t mind switching ;)
Love when stories just appear - wish they were all like that! I'm hoping to be able to spend time this weekend reading my copy of Candied Crime - yay! Loved your sentences - the story sounds intriguing.
Yes, Dorte, Rural View is Barbara. I should change my user name.
I can adjust to 2nd rate- I'm glad those triangle-faced tabbies can, too!
Belle: most of my flash stories just appear - but not always when I want one. I hope you´ll enjoy "Candied Crime".
Barbara: I´m glad I got it right :)
Clare: I´m afraid the tabbies are far more angular than you (my daughters says the story is uncanny - hehe).
