Writing Update #11

Happy birthday to me! I'm 19 now. Guh, I'm old!
I edited a lot on my story this week and deleted about half of it, 90 pages out of approximately 200. Well, I didn't delete them, I just cut them out and put them in another document in case I still need the scenes later.
I decided to use only two POVs in my story now, which means that many scenes from other POVs will fall away. So this is why I have lots of editing to do.
Oh, and I also wrote about two pages this week. I have to re-write a lot, but I feel a little more liberated now that I'm not using so many POVs anymore.

On another note, our Steffi will get put to sleep on Friday. She's just so ill that every effort to make her life longer will only make her suffer more. I'm really sad about letting her go, but I only want the best for her. This way, she's going to go to cat heaven in a peaceful way and we all get to say goodbye to her properly.

Sometimes that's all you can do for a beloved pet, let them go peacefully. It's still horribly difficult, but there's the comfort of knowing that they're at peace and not suffering. Being able to say goodbye properly helps a lot. *hugs*


Good luck with the editing etc!

(And Happy Birthday!)

Thank you! Even though the time doesn't really feel right to celebrate a birthday ._.

I miss her already, although she's still with us :'( At least she doesn't know what's going on...

Just make her last few days as happy as possible, cherish your time with her. I have photos of my Misty, taken just before. They're very precious.

Oh, I'm so sad about Steffi! All cat and dog owners have to go through this because their little lifespans are so much shorter than ours. My husband is still traumatized from when we had to put Fluffy down. But you know, I will never stop loving Fluffy, and you will never stop loving Steffi. It doesn't matter if they're not around anymore. The love is real and it goes on.

I never lost a loved one, neither human nor pet. Our guinea pigs got so old that we finally gave them to another family because we wanted a cat, and of course we didn't have such a close relationship with them either.

But that's life, I guess. You're right, the love goes on, and life goes on, too, even when someone is missing :(
