Me taking notes for our novel so Mama can translate and type them up for me.

Writing a novel

Is a big task for a pup

Who’s just a poet

 

Jointly we write a novel

Pets over at Rocco’s House

 

 

 

Wooooowooooo! November is NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). Rocco over at Rocco’s House had the pawesome idea to join forces with other pet bloggers to write our own novel! He is so smart. We pets have so much to do like go for walks, ask for treats, play, and take naps that it just wouldn’t be possible for us to meet the NaNoWriMo challenge of 50,000 words in the month or 2,000 words per day! So we are supporting each other in this writing project. Woooowooooo!

I know I am a published author with my autobiography and I am a poet, but this is my first try at fiction, so I hope you like it! Here are the first six authors and chapters:

  1.  Rocco
  2.  Bongo
  3.  Haley and Zaphod
  4.  Easy Rider
  5.  My Rotten Dogs
  6. Sophie Doodle

And here’s my chapter:

I hopped over the tree tugging the mystery lady with me. “Wait, Petey!” she screamed as she picked herself up off the ground but still clenching tight to my collar. She then pulled another treat out of her Mary Poppins purse. It was delicious, but by now I was wary of her. And then before I could finish wolfing down my treat she slapped a choke collar and leash on me! She had those in her purse too?! What else is in there?

She had to drag me through the woods. By now it was very dark, but at least the moon was full. I would see drag marks on the forest floor, and with them the scent of my owner! Oh Dog! What has this lady done to my owner! She must be taking me to him, so I will play along until I can rescue him. Maybe this way she’ll give me more treats too!

The wind began to pick up making the branches on the trees creak and the leaves rustle. The forest sounded like it was alive! The lady seemed scared of the sounds, and would jump and tug on the choke collar. Unfortunately she forgot all about the treats in her bottomless purse.

Then, all of a sudden, we reached a very old run-down cabin. Finally the lady stood still for a moment so I could go potty! I decided to pee on her leg, which made her scream like a Banshee. A man then opened the cabin door. With the light shining behind him, all I could see was a black silhouette. I could still smell the scent of my owner, but this man smelled like something else…pizza!

Check out the next chapter tomorrow at Oh My Shih Tzu!

  1. Yowsers, this story is starting to scare me especially the end with the silhouetted figure standing in the door. That faint aroma of pizza, BE CAREFUL, it has to be a trick!!
    I don’t think our lady friend is a friend at all, choke collars are so unnecessary, so she has to taken care of, someone down the road will, I just know it.
    Your 1st attempt was just super and I hope it gives you ammunition to try again!
    Thanks for all of this!

  2. Ku, what a great addition to our novel. You’re a natural at writing fiction. My person even laughed when Petey peed on that lady. I can’t wait to read the next part of the story tomorrow.

    P.S. I just realized I wasn’t following you and we’ve been friends for awhile – so now I am.
