Pocket Mouse Crisis

Yep, dearest stay-warm my Big Kittens, a mouse crisis, two of them... mewing-however, the Kougar’s latest is her darling little pocket mouse by Kensington... nope, it’s not happily clicking for moi... for goddess knows what reason. Okay, the Kougaress did clean the bottom guck off as she does periodically. Nothing seems amiss with little mouse, however, except for Microsoft not recognizing the program, anymore.
Yep, she had a big Logitech mouse in reserve and it’s working great... but, roaring-complaint, it feels awful to use, because it is BIG. Too big to use all the time.
What? Does everything have to be designed for the size of a man’s hand? Hey, moi’s human hands are considered, probably, on the small side of medium-sized. Not even petite, yet the regular sized mice are just too yucky-feeling big. B-I-G!
So, this Big Cat’s solution that she hopes works... ordering a kid-sized mouse which is not wireless and has the same measurements of her pocket mouse. Hopefully, it will live up to the description ~ being compatible to XP.
So, with all the time consumed searching out a mouse solution, no, not much authorly penning happened.

The following is a quote the Kougar read on the Passionate Ink forum and had never come across before ~ yeppers yowl, it fits this author Big Cat ~

“Occasionally, there arises a writing situation where you see an alternative to what you are doing, a mad, wild gamble of a way for handling something, which may leave you looking stupid, ridiculous or brilliant -you just don't know which. You can play it safe there, too, and proceed along the route you'd mapped out for yourself. Or you can trust your personal demon who delivered that crazy idea in the first place. Trust your demon.” – Sometimes, you just have to push yourself and believe it’ll all work out.

Authoress news and mews ~

Just for Halloween-mood grins, the Kougar posted ZHARIO OF THE DARK SERVER UNIT, her 1,000 word Vampire Romance as a Flash Fiction Novel at TextNovel, after she posted the next chapter of CURSES WERE STRANGE BEASTS. The response has been favorable. Big Cat smiles here. Thanks to all who have read it and voted for it.
Siren-BookStrand has amicably resolved their selling-distribution issues with All Romance Ebooks... so if that’s one of your fave vendors, keep purchasing books by Siren-BookStrand authors, including moi’s, of course.
Also, the Kougar is booked to continue blogging at THE ROMANCE STUDIO on a monthly basis during 2010, and is tentatively scheduled to do an interview in February.

Now ~ FIRST! just for the big cool cats ~

Happy Courtship on another Earth

X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues...

Part 291 ~

Sylva stood as her cowboy husband presented his hand to her. His eyes gleamed at her so much, she could smiled and glowed inside as she moved to his side. “I would never have believed all this could happen to me, being here. Being here with you.” He hooked his arm with hers in a romantic and affectionate manner that made her sidle closer, then lean against him, fitting her curves to his hard frame. Sylva wondered if she’d ever take his tall, magnificently muscled body for granted, assuming they remained together. Yep, hope had her, for good or bad.

Zeke surely appreciated the feel of his wife. Inside he rolled like a stallion in good dirt as he escorted her from the diner. Course, he scanned the immediate area before strolling along the sidewalk. His sister and Grant walked behind them. “Rain on the way,” Marina commented. “I smell it coming in, especially the yearning of the cactus. They want to bloom. Can you smell anything, Sylva?” Zeke squeezed his bride’s hand gently. “Smell it, darlin’?” She snuggled a bit closer. “I smell the prairie grasses. And what I think is sage. But, the sky is clouding over, ominously.”
