Weekly Challenge #241: Write something about a cat Can be a cat added to your story, a short story or poem about a cat, etc.

Directions:
1. Post on the challenge thread, declaring the goals you have committed to. This must be done before midnight on Monday.
2. When you have finished your goals, post on the challenge thread again, stating what goals you have completed, how many times you have completed them, and whether any of them were combined.
3. At midnight on Saturday you are not allowed to report any more finished goals, and the challenge is over.


Rules:
1. You can repeat the weekly challenges, and get more points, but if you repeat your own personal goal, you will not get extra points.
2. The organizer has the right to veto any personal goal that seems too easy (i.e. writing a sentence).


Points:
You can earn points in these ways:
1. completing the weekly challenge
2. repeating the weekly challenge
3. completing your personal goal
4. combining your personal goal and the weekly challenge

Is there any way to change the default background? I can't read the "Points" section unless I select the text so the colors change. I didn't even know the Challenge had annual points systems until just now.

Personal goal: Write non-MC POV scenes that use different voices.

Humor for the day: The Challenge is to write about a cat. One of the MCs in my 1416 series is named Marco. Our 75 pound adopted tail-wagger is named Marco. I like the name, just can't tell the dog I'm writing about a cat.

A redesign of the forum is planned for this year. Ultimately we hope to have multiple themes, so people can keep the retro theme if they prefer.

If anyone needs kitty inspiration for their writing, I have four they can borrow. ^_^ ;)

Well, as of yesterday, I am no longer working at PetCo and have gone full-time with books! So I need to make an effort to work on my own books as well as HW stuffage. So...

Personal Goal: Compile the rough draft of Crook Q ("Red Rain 2") and read through it once.
Timezone: CST

(Half of the book was written by David, so I need to go through multiple files and integrate alternating scenes, and then read through it once so I can outline anything that's missing.)

Weekly and personal challenge combined. Part 1 and Part 2.

One must have a cigar smoking twelve year old if one writes about a cat.

Addendum: The post was in two parts due to exceeding the forum's character count limit.

I can change the font color. Let me know if it makes it easier.
