It's been too long since I posted, and I don't want y'all to think I'm twiddling my furry fingers. So from now on I plan to post a sort of weekly "recap" of blog-icity to stay in touch.
MONDAY MENTIONS--MASHUP OF AWESOMENESS
Monday Mentions is the mash-up-day of all the neato-torpedo links and blogs and writer-icity crappiocca collected over the past week having to do with cats, dogs, publishing, goofy-weird videos and BLING!
Also please send your Ask Amy suggestions for future videos. Next weekend I’m putting on the sparkle-icity for more Q & A. Hey, if I don’t know the answer I’ll find out (or make something up!). Check out this past week's mashup of awesomeness here.
TUESDAY TIPS--NONFICTION "IDEA TREE"
Over the next several Tuesday Tips I’ll cover some of the meat-and-potatoes of choosing topics, researching ideas, and putting together a winning nonfiction book proposal. After writing 23 nonfiction pet books, I’ve experimented with several ways of creating nonfiction proposals and some work better than others. Once I found something that worked, few of the basics have changed. It all begins with what I call THE IDEA TREE. Read all about it here.
WOOF WEDNESDAY--PET POISON PROTECTION
This blog discusses holiday safety for pets and that includes pets and poison plants, including a KXII-TV video. This blog has already covered a number of tips about protecting the Christmas tree from both your dogs and the kitty-cats. But what are some other plant poisons that happen around the holiday? Learn all about it here.
THOUGHTY THURSDAY--THEATRE R US!
I don't often post on Thursdays but you won't want to miss this Theatrical Shout-Out. I'm a playwright! And you can learn more about this new musical and the cast of KURVES, THE MUSICAL in this post.
FELINE FRIDAY--WEIRD CAT BEHAVIOR
Sometimes it's a Furry Friday and covers both--but today's is a favorite that features cat behaviors you may not understand. Enjoy the fun and learn about these 12 weird cat behaviors.
