Mr Mews Picks up a Pen

"I'm a bit topsy turvy this morning Quigley.  You'll have to excuse me if I'm a bit punchy.  You see the power went out last night while I was in the middle of composing a sonnet."
"Indeed, I must have slept through it.  What ever on earth did you do?"

"I'll tell you what I did, I lit a candle and picked up a pen-the old fashioned way.  Oh I must say it was delightful-I feel quite invigorated-although it's true I didn't exactly get around to finishing my poem.  And it's also true that I have yet to publish even one of them.  While I feel inspired that pile of rejection letters sitting in my desk drawer plagues me like a swarm of locusts."

"For goodness sakes Mews, take them out of there this instant and toss them in the trash.  Honestly, how you punish yourself so."
"Perhaps you're right Quigley.  Perhaps it's time to do a bit of a clearing house."

"Good man!  There's no time like the present Mews!"


  1. Hello Mr Mews, it's very nice to meet you. Surely a power cut should not bother you, you are, after all, a cat with most excellent night vision. Quite right to dump those tiresome letters!

  2. We are with Quigley, you should get rid of those old nasty rejection letters immediately! It is not worth keeping them because they will only cause you to dwell on them and not move forward!

  3. Hi Mr Mews :)

  4. Mr. Mews..I daresay you are a cat of action. Rid yourself of those silly letters immediately. And move on.

  5. Indeed, I just watched the dump truck carry them away to their rightful destination!

  6. And welcome new gentlecats-Mickey, Georgia, Tillie and Everycat-Amy and the House of Cats, and of course Admiral, always a pleasure.
