Written? Kitten!

After a truly terrible night's sleep, completed by waking up early with the mother of all charley horses, I am sluggish today.

Beyond sluggish. I resemble the zombies I am writing about. Putting together a coherent sentence feels like so much work. Lucky for my word count my friend Liz showed me this website:

Written? Kitten! 

It's very simple. You write into the box. After writing the amount of words you set, you get a new kitten picture. It's that easy. You will be rewarded for writing with a picture of an adorable kitten.

I will take all the help I can get today, especially if it's in the form of adorable kittens cheering me on.

What about you? What do you do to get yourself going when you're so tired you want to prop your eyelids up with toothpicks? 


  1. OMG, I did it (just silly stuff) because I was too curious not to - and Eek! That's no kitten!

    I just started back working on a short story that I plan on trying to get in Kindle Singles. It was one I wrote years ago and have never submitted anywhere, but I have always liked it. It was very short, though - too short. So I added the back story in the front. (Which necessitated researching childbed fever - I'm so very glad we live in modern times!)

    Her mother dies. The original story, her mother was already dead.

  2. So cute! Who comes up with this stuff? ;)

  3. Linda: What was it? A wooly mammoth?
    Good luck with the story!

    Jessica: I don't know, but they are pretty clever!
