Kailie dismounted like a tornado...

Way after midnight meows, my summery funnery Felines... a mild sunny day on the tame prairie, but blustery windy until late afternoon... so much extreme weather, though, in our beloved country and around the world... it’s just soul-spinning... and, of course, flood insurance isn’t going to help those who counted on it... because, well, you know the ‘big’ insurance companies can manufacture any excuse ‘not’ to pay out... gosh, this Big Cat wishes she was a techie-genius robin hood as she’s yowled before.... but, alas, no.

Here’s the first ‘crude’ six sentences of an Old West WIP the Kougar started ~

Kailie dismounted like a tornado chased after her. Flipping the reins over the hitching post, she glanced at her mare only long enough to determine she was fine, despite the fast gallop into Dry Gulch beneath the morning sun.

With her blood on fire like the time she’d taken a large sip of whiskey, Kailie whipped her pistol from her side holster. She marched toward the saloon’s swinging doors, her fast pace stirring up clouds of dust.

Leaping onto the wooden walkway, she ignored the holler telling her she shouldn’t be entering the saloon. Kailie burst through the doors, heedless of who or what was in her way.

Big Cat by-the-numbers ~

12:12 am... 2:22 am... 3:33 am... 4:44 am... 1:11 pm... 4:44 pm... 5:55 pm... 12:12 am... 1:11 am... the AWAKENING is slamming into the bad guy globalists...

Common Sense, New Rules, and Grammar Divas
by Kayelle Allen
An author friend complained recently about an editor who suggested changes which went against what the author considered common sense and good grammar. I suggested taking a look at the publisher's house style and which reference resources they used before he dug in his heels.


Oh, my darling Kittens, so *not good news* about commercially made sunscreens. Not only are they extremely hazardous to your health because they prevent Vitamin D absorption, and the chemicals are cancer-causing. But, when used on children, the chemicals can sterilize them as in not being able to have children of their own. ALSO! It’s now known these chemicals are, in large part, responsible for killing off the coral reefs. What a diabolical product!!!

As this Big Cat mentioned before there are natural substances such as aloe vera gel that will prevent sunburn. Add in some good quality Vit C, add some food grade olive oil and/or coconut oil, and you’ll be far more protected from any harmful rays than using sunscreens. Last night, the Kougaress heard another way to prevent sunburn that jogged her memory. Her dad talked about this when she was little. That is, mixing olive oil and iodine, then applying to the skin. A man who had been in the military said they used this, and it never failed to protect them from sunburn. Plus, with the iodine that should help you with all the radiation now pouring down on us, invisibly.

Sunscreen Dangers

First hour guest, clinical laboratory scientist Dr. Elizabeth Plourde ~ ~ discussed her research on sunscreen lotion which she contends is creating numerous health and environmental concerns, such as killing the coral reefs, and ironically contributing to an increase in cases of skin cancer. As an alternative to using chemical sunscreens, which she has labeled a "biohazard," Plourde suggested that the antioxidants derived from eating a good diet will rise up in the skin and act as natural protection from the sun.

The most powerful weapon is the human soul on fire. ALL POWER TO THE PEOPLE!

And, May you live the dreams of your heart, not in interesting times...

Summery funnery kisses from the Kougar...

Mmm...six cowboy sentences! They sound wonderful, I can't wait to read more. Is Kailie a new character who decided to jump ahead of White Fang, or an older character who just had something to say? ;)

Bree said...

I agree with Serena. That cowboy stuff sounds delish!!

Savanna Kougar said...

Serena, she jumped into my twilight musings after White Fang. I wanted to get her basic story down. With everything else going on around Kandy Apple, I haven't been able to concentrate on White Fang. However, his and Pasha's story comes first.

What about you, whose story is dominating now?

Savanna Kougar said...

Bree, thanks! No vamps yet in this story, but it will have its share of high strangeness.

What are you working on now?

Serena Shay said...

Well, promo seems to be dominating right now, but once that settles down I'm headed back to editing and re-writes on The Submission. LeAnn and Rick have been quite patient with me, but Trent is starting to act up! lol

Plus, I do need to decide on a Talbot's Peak story to write, if only those characters would step up with a solidified story...~wink~

Savanna Kougar said...

Serena, yep, the whole promo thing throws a wrench into my writing, but good. While I enjoy launching my new bookie, still the writer in me gets frustrated.

Oooh, I'm glad to hear The Submission, or Trent is calling your writerly name.
