Cats and writers don't mix

The end of 2017 is a busy time for me.

I'm finishing my fifth adult novel.
I'm finishing my first middle grade novel.
I'm copyediting my nonfiction book on storytelling. 

I'm not complaining (or trying not to, at least) because I know how fortunate I am to have three different publishers willing to pay me to write, but it's also like having three enormous homework assignments all due at the same time.

I'm spending a lot of time in front of the computer. Early mornings. Late nights. Weekends. Lunch breaks. I'm working hard. Often enjoying the work, as much as there is to accomplish. 

But not everyone is helping me get the job done.
