from the desk of bingley no. 1

Blogger's Note: While I make an effort to generate some serious progress on Book 3, the wonderful Bingley Chapman has agreed to oversee Change the Word. All opinions expressed in these posts are his and his alone. (Except when they're mine, but being portrayed as his.)


Talk about being a pushover. A little persuasive begging and a smooch from my mom, and here I am. Taking care of her blog while she allegedly writes another novel. I obviously have pressing matters to attend to (those naps won't take themselves), but I'm also a sucker for this dame.

Besides, I managed to negotiate some terms into this deal. In addition to giving me more salmon treats and cuddles, Mom promised to put a cat in this new book. As long as he's devastatingly charming and handsome like me, you readers will be in excellent shape.

So, unless you see otherwise, I'm in charge of things around here. I can't promise I'll have much to share, but I'll make up for my lack of depth with cuteness.

And before you ask, yes. That is a Fifty Shades of Grey movie poster in the background. SMH. Women. Not only do I have to look at that thing every day BUT I have to live with the knowledge that he'd never find himself in this situation.

I'm not really sure how to go about ending this post, so I'll do what my mom does a lot of the time and leave you with a music video. Here's one of the songs she's been playing a lot while she works on this new story. It may or may not get her in the mood to tell this story. It may just make her dance in her chair. You can never tell with Mom.

  1. Aw, Bingley, your post made me smile. You are a cat after my own heart with your 50 Shades snark. I'm excited that your mommy will be including a cat in her next book, although I'm sure no kitty, fictional or otherwise, could be as charming and cuddly as you.

    I look forward to reading more of your feline thoughts in the coming weeks! :)

    1. Hey, Tracie! Blogging is so much fun! I've already heard about this fictional cat's name, so it's pretty much a thing! =^.^=

  2. Bing! You're a good kitty-son (I sound like Mr. Miagi) for helping out your mom in her time of need. And you're much more charming than that rude dude in the poster. Purr on, sweet little guy!

  3. So happy to hear from you, Bingley! Stormy (my youngest furry guy) is now rubbing his face on my laptop screen in appreciation of your literary contribution. Write on!

  4. Thank you, Bingley. Now Bonnie is yammering on about how SHE never gets to star in HER mom's blog. Guess who's a jealous little spaniel?

  5. Bing, you are so cute and adorable!! Abbie is completely smitten (and she hates other cats, which means you are EXTRA special.) She's super jealous that you know your way around a keyboard since she only knows how to sit on them. Looking forward to more of your kitty posts! :)
