Luna & NaNoWriMo

The puppies have now gone to their new families, but I thought you'd enjoy seeing this picture of Luna, the pup that my sister decided to keep.

Luna is cheeky, funny and my sister insists she's the dog version of me! I gather she's referring to the clumsiness of the pup. She breaks into a run (not something I'm known for doing unless: a) it starts raining, b) a shop is about to close and I need something, usually a book, shoes, or chocolate, c) I've been writing and can smell food burning (the most often cause of me breaking into a trot).

Oh, as I was saying...Luna breaks into a run...and then somehow manages to fall over her own feet. Now, this IS something I do at regular intervals at great amusement to my beloved family. She is, above all, cuddy and adorable, although I don't think we share those attributes so much. Adorable, of course (ahem!) but cuddly (other than to look at) no.

You may have noticed (how could you not?) the odd post here, on Facebook, and Twitter about Tears and Laughter and Happy Ever After. Please go to Facebook and 'Like' it, if you haven't already done so. Thank you.

Good luck to those of you who are taking part in NaNoWriMo. I thoroughly enjoyed doing it in 2009 and 2010 and found it really helped me get my thoughts down onto the page. How are you doing so far?

Hope you're having a fun weekend. x

That little girl is firmly planted on all fours--oh, make that fives! :-) She's growing longer, isn't she? Pretty soon body will be able to keep up with feet.

Heading over to FB right now to do some "liking". I'm watching for a teaser from you, Debs. Have I missed it?

Deborah Carr (Debs) said...

Thank you for liking, I'm thrilled to be involved.

Thanks for 'liking'. You haven't missed my teaser yet, it should be posted soon.

I love that pic. What a sweet pup. I love her name too, of course!

I'll 'like' Tears on Facebook.

Gorgeous and that applies to both you and the pup!

Awww. Puppy! Luna is darling. I wish I could take her home and snuggle her up.

I miss NaNo this year. But I did 50K in October, so I guess I shouldn't whine. Now I just need to repeat it this month and get this darn book done.

Pauline Barclay said...

Deborah Carr (Debs) said...

B e sanderson- she's naughty, but adorable.

Fantastic word count. Well done you.

Pauline - thank you so much.

Mama j - she is, isn't she?

Rosemary Gemmell said...

Oh, she is too cute, Debs. Love the name - is it after lovely Luna in Harry Potter? Getting on fairly well with NaNO.

Troy said...

They will need to keep that puppy away from fleas - I'm sure your sister wouldn't want Luna tics in her house.

I dare not show that photo of Luna to Troy Junior as I know he would sooo want that puppy.

Chris Stovell said...

Of course you're both adorable! Lovely photo, Debs and , yes, I have :)

Talli Roland said...

What a gorgeous pup! I want one, I want one. Sigh! How does Grumps get along with her?

Flowerpot said...

Luna is just lovely as are you Debs. Good luck with NaNoWriMo - keep at it!

Deborah Carr (Debs) said...

Rosemary - No, I just liked the name and she's the colour of a full moon.

Glad NaNo is going well.

Troy - lol. He's not the only one who'd love one of the pups.

Chris - thank you, from both of us.

Talli - Grumps hasn't been introduced to her yet, but will be soon. She's already as big as him!

Flowerpot - thank you. :-)

Aw, Luna is so cute. Is there anything better than a puppy? I don't think so.

I 'think' I've liked the FB page but I'll go and check. (It's an age thing... ;))

Anna Scott Graham said...

Great photo; Luna is adorable!

NaNo is going well, a few stones in the way, but just part of the journey!

Deborah Carr (Debs) said...

Shirley - she is the cuddliest of puppies.

Thanks for the 'like'.

Anna - You're the only person I know who can write two books during NaNo. Go, you.

Suzanne Ross Jones said...

Suzanne - she's such a character too.
