Welcome Rebecca Royce to the blog today and her cats!
3 Reasons Why This Writer Love To Write With Cats
Okay, perhaps this seems like a really random blog post. And I know it is. But, as I sit here trying to decide what to write about today, I find myself staring at my cat, Blue, and I thought perhaps you might be interested in the reasons why I find my cat such a help in writing my books.
1. If I don’t keep writing, keeping my fingers moving on the keyboard, my cat will come and sit on them. This isn’t a joke. Ask any writer what their cat does to our keyboards. Boom. The cat sits on top of our computers trying to put themselves in our books. Like right now. I’d better keep typing…
2. Cats love us…except when they disdain us. I think that most writers feel this way about their writing. We love doing it but we also worry that everything we put down is horrific. Sometimes when my cat stares at me I think that she must be trying to tell me that everything I just wrote is horrible. So I sit down and do better. She must be making me a better writer.
3. The cat needs to be fed. That means that occasionally I have to actually get up and do something other than stare at my computer screen. The truth is my ideas come when I’m busy with other things. Pouring the cat food has brought on brilliance. Except when I later think everything I wrote is terrible…(see comment 2)
Thanks for being with me today, for letting me be here, and I hope you’ll check out Forever!
Devin Owen has come back from the Dragon Wars a changed Werewolf. For one thing, he’s lost his wolf side as well as most of his desire to live. He spends most of his life doped up to handle the pain from his injured leg.
Lena Knox knew the moment she met Devin that he was her mate. But, she’d been a child at the time and he hadn’t noticed her at all. Now, all grown up she wants Devin to be the wolf she’s waited for. Not that she has a lot of time for longing with life crumbling around her.
A couple of heated encounters draw them together but is it enough to overcome the war wounds they both carry? Or will an outside enemy destroy them before they get the chance to know?
The Dragon alarm sounded in the distance. Devin’s whole body tensed. He knew they were false alarms, but they still got him worked up. On the front lines, when that alarm sounded, there was nothing fake about it.
“How long does it usually go on?” He’d been more than just a little distracted the first time he’d heard the shrill, piercing sound. Keeping Lena safe had been the pivotal thought in his mind.
“Maybe a minute.” His father stood up. “I wish they’d stop sounding them. Everyone knows the Dragons never get in this far.”
“Going running tonight?” Devin could hardly think with the Dragon alarm ringing. He wanted to be distracted; he needed his father to speak.
“It’s going on a bit long now.” His dad walked over to the window that faced the street. Devin joined him to peer outside.
A sight tremor overtook his hand, and he put it in his pocket so his dad wouldn’t notice. Why was he so worked up? His nose twitched and he bounced from foot to foot. Where had all of this energy come from?
He swung open the door and walked outside where the alarm sounded louder.
A noise caught his attention over the ringing hell assaulting his ears. He turned in the direction to see Lena tromping down the street. She looked worn out and for a second he wanted to wrap her up in his arms. The woman worked constantly. His heart melted at the sight of her seconds before he remembered his anger.
As a teenager, Rebecca Royce would hide in her room to read her favorite romance novels when she was supposed to be doing her homework. She hopes, these days, that her parents think it was well worth it.
Rebecca is the mother of three adorable boys and is fortunate to be married to her best friend. They’ve just moved to Texas where Rebecca is discovering a new love for barbecue!
She’s in love with science fiction, fantasy, and the paranormal and tries to use all of these elements in her writing. She’s been told she’s a little bloodthirsty so she hopes that when you read her work you’ll enjoy the action packed ride that always ends in romance. Rebecca loves to write series because she loves to see characters develop over time and it always makes her happy to see her favorite characters make guest appearances in other books.
In Rebecca Royce’s world anything is possible, anything can happen, and you should suspect that it will.
