Help! I Am Stuck! Send Subscriptions!
This week's writing 3/25/27
As you can see, our fluffy cat Ecgwynn is trapped by her own claws and adventuresomeness. Will you be like the vacuum cleaner, looking on indifferently? Or! Will you become a paid subscriber and help her descend by becoming a paid subscriber?!
Cats love paid subscriptions because they help them get down from window blinds. This is a well known fact verifiable in any leading medical journal. Just check the link below!
Anyway! If you are new to the substack, hello! I write a bunch and round up publications every week. I’ve been posting twice a day at the substack, but I think I may wind that back a bit? But either way, lots of content, including occasional subscriber only posts, so consider subscribing. The cats will thank you.
