A funny book. It is only 15 pages long. But it had all it needed to be a good book. J... :-@

This is a charming story, very original and creative. Loved the opening scene, I could "hear" the calendar (it sounded like Paul Lynde). I wavered on the rating, but the story is really better than just "good" so it gets 5 stars from me.

Enjoyable short story. I liked the characters. Jane is stuck and trying to figure a way out of her dilemma. I loved the animals interactions. Super cute and funny. Martin has a comforting, familiar feel about him. I liked that he's insightful about Jane and offers up not just ideas for solutions but his confidence that Jane is more than capable of meeting her goals. All read

Jane has been plagued by writer’s block—a horror I, as a writer, know ALL TOO WELL. I could feel the bitterness and frustration every time Jane tore through another version of that manuscript. GRRRRR! So what does she do to fix it? She moves away from it, gets some distance from it, escapes it. But even though her body may be in paradise, her mind was still on that dreadful story she couldn’t finish. But, of course, she ended up finding another distraction: a cat! Of course, the best part was finding out the cat’s owner was a charming and caring man. This was a quick and sappy romance that you can get through in 5 minutes. Hardly worth it, really. It was strangely typical how the pets ended up having the same name. Seriously, what are the odds of that? For me, the most inspirational part was Martin’s statement: “Write what you want to write.” (200) Sometimes writers get lost in the aspiration for fame and fortune, never once remembering the main reason they got started in this whole writing thing—fun. And, of course, that got Jane’s butt into gear. This is actually a good reminder for any writer struggling with the block, even if the story did end a little too predictably.

VERY GOOD! I thought this was a very good short story. It held my attention and I thought it was cleverly written.

Short, humorous, had two of my favorite animals, and left me smiling.
