This is so great! Some of them are scary, some of them crazy, but they all have one thing in common: they give me the creeps. LOL Still, I’m fascinated, despite the fear.
I think with this blog post Cary Vaughn, a cat daddy of five has a serious point. It is important to keep your house – and your cats meth-free! Enjoy.
In the span of two weeks, Partner spent over $1,000 on dental work for two out of five of our cats. Only hours afterdepositing the heathens at the vet’s officefor what was only supposed to be a cleaning, I received a phone call stating that numerous teeth required extraction from each cat’s face hole (my words, not theirs).
Rather than linger on what one-thousand-some-odd of Partner’s dollars could have afforded me (that’s a lot of liquor and corn dogs), I launched an investigation (i.e. Googled) into this peculiar and expensive outbreak of dental decomposition.
Since “tooth decay” was too generic a search term for my situation, I typed in”mouth rot” and discovered an alarmingly accurate description ofan issue muchdeeper than just poor hygiene: meth mouth.

I thought, this is such a wonderful motivational blog post, written by N. N. Light. I wanted to share it with as many people as I can.
When sunbeams shine on skies above
light the world , the fields and all thereof.
Deep in the woods where it’s cool and dark
the life of danger’s set to park…
Sleep comes easy, rest does too,
It’s important to let strength re-new.
The night will be another fight
to get the pray and some to bite.
Finally from dusk to dawn
the time has come to test the brawn.
in silence and with secret swings
the danger has prepared its wings.
Soundless floating on the wind
it finds its victim, has it pinned.
A cry in highest pitch and pain
and the predator has won his gain.
Quickly carrying it to hide.
three beaks to feed with strength and pride.
The night just started, much to do
mommy flies – for kids to chew.
No prey will have the time to fear
death will come, with none to hear.
No sound, no smell, it will go fast.
And no memory to even last.
The predator will eat it whole
later we’ll find them by the pole.
A pellet out of bones and fur
a victim’s life, gone in a blur.
But danger’s kids will proudly grow
to become more predators to show.
Beautiful and lethal, in secret to hide
More danger, more murder in silence to glide.
Adjusting with nature, in dawn and light
during night and day a beautiful sight.
Eyes like candles , attentive and wise
a master of death and in disguise.
Of course this danger is protected in weathers
covered from head to toe in feathers.
Something some call without respect “fowl”
I’m talking, no doubt, about the beautiful owl.

The Story Reading Ape’s post had made me laugh once again. He’s got the best pics to cheer me up. Thanks for this! And yes, I’m late reading his posts and I dare to re-blog this one, even on a Thursday. I’m sure it will be just as funny!
Liz Long probably speaking for many Indie-authors. Read her article. She rocks!! Thank you, Liz!
What’s worse is that what I’m mad about is truly something out of my control. There’s not a thing I can do about it except keep pushing barriers. To hold my head high and keep on keepin’ on with the rest of the crowd.
You can probably guess why I’m angry thanks to the headline. Wait – no, I’m NOT mad about self-publishing. But rather the thoughts behind self-publishing and the ideas that we’re not as good or “real” as traditionally published authors.
The publishing system isn’t broken by any means, but the stigma behind “traditional” and “indie” publishing has really gotten my goat lately.
I’m independently published, or self-published. What does that mean? It means I do not have an agent or traditional publisher backing me. It means that I’m in control of my stories, my edits, my covers, my marketing, and everything else that goes along…

Take this advice. It comes from an expert. Thank you for sharing this with us!
All right, as some of you know, I recently did some work for a publishing press. What I did was read unsolicited manuscripts (stories sent by authors with no agent) and decide if my boss should read it and publish it. During the weeks I spent doing this, I came to discover that authors really do have the worst habits.
