Have I mentioned how much I love Gary Patterson’s illustrations? They’re like the best thing ever! The. Cutest. When I flipped to the April calendar page this morning, I was struck by how appropriate this cartoon is of the cat with all the different pages, and foods to choose from. I mean, could we get any closer to how I feel, and probably look, when I have all of my writing notes scattered everywhere. Do I tackle this short story? This poem? Do I even know what genre I want to write? Do I have enough for this idea to be a novel? The choices, or ideas, aren’t the problem. It’s the discipline to stick to something and finish. Will the cat sample a little of all of his choices? Will he devour them all? Will he decide he has some solid favorites and ignore the others that don’t suit him? I’m a lot like this little kitty. I think I’ll adopt him as my mascot this month, as a reminder that even when faced with lots of different choices, I have to find what suits me and be disciplined enough to see it through.
