Monday Mayhem – Fiction becomes fact

Write what you know. That’s one of the first pieces of writing advice an author hears, and there’s a reason it rings true. If we write what we know, chances are we’ll connect with a reader who has had a similar experience.

A couple of months ago, I was sitting in a doctor’s waiting room reading a Kristan Higgins’ book and bawling my eyeballs out when the heroine’s beloved dog passed away.

Yesterday, I spent the day bawling my eyeballs out after saying goodbye to my beloved Beauregard.

I hope you’ll forgive me if I don’t write about this anytime soon. Hug and kiss your puppies, kitties, buns and other furry friends and tell them it’s from me.

  1. Animals are such an incredible gift to the world. I know how hard it is to lose a pet too. I still think about MoJo to this day, even though we lost him several years ago. They fill our hearts with so much strength and joy. They make us feel safe, and they shower us with their unconditional love. My love and hugs to you and your family. xoxo

  2. Aw, Mags. So sorry. Hugs & smooches beamed to you, along with a virtual shoulder to cry on. He looks like he was a good, faithful pal.
