SPEEDY the housebunny invited me for a writers tour and I grabbed my tail and my ink bottle to write some lines:
First something about Speedy, in case you haven’t met him by now: Speedy is a Himalayan Rex, what means he comes from a royal family in the Himalaya. But you haven’t to style him with Your Royal Highness, Speedy is Speedy for his friends and for his pirate-crew he is Captain Speedy the conqueror of all seven seas. He lives in a kingdom together with his mom and dad and therefore it is called United Kingdom. And if you want to read more or to join his brave crew, enter his blog:
For the writers tour there are three questions to answer:
1. What am I working on?
I try to write about the world like it is.. or like it could be… from the sight of a silvermistygrey weisenheimer through the eyes of his momma. Hope that makes sense… I also work on a book. By now this book exists just in my silvermistygrey mind, because I have no clue what kind of book I could write. So you haven’t to be afraid that another horrible book will enter the market, it will probably be an unfinished horrible book. And taht makes No sense, I know…
2. Why do I write what I do?
Because I love to write. I live in a family of writers. My mom mostly writes e-mails or wishlists, I write my blog and my dad writes checks for my mom’s wishlist. Or his last will when the wishlist has more words than he can put number on that checks. Mostly my posts are born ad-hoc, with the moment something happens in my crib and there are a lot of things I could write about. I rarely pre-write posts, just those what needs scientific research or bloghop-posts what have to be ready on a special day. Or posts like this one.
3. How does my writing process work?
It started once in 2012 as I had a special Weim-question
“Is that guy totally nuts or am I the one who’s nuts?” and I asked google. I found a blog, written by Olive the Weimaraner what answered my question. “Yes, they can drive you as crazy, that you have to leave the house for a while.”
While wandering through WordPress and Blogger, I suddenly found a world where people celebrate the birthday of their pets like a national howliday YAY!, where dogs and cats travel to the moon, where they have party’s and competitions, where they reach out their paws when you are sad and where they laugh together with you , when you are happy. Short, a place with people and pets who think like you and who feel the same. A place where you like to be and where you are welcome, no matter from where you come or who you are. A place what feels like HOME… probably therefore it’s called Home-page :o)
Two years later I always remember my first steps in Blogville and in the course of time the people and pets there are nearer to me than my neighbors in the “real world”. I don’t ponder about what to cook the next day or about the people who live around me. I rather think about a visit at the vet a citizen of blogville has to do, or about a test one has to pass. And I worry when I read that someone is not well or made a bad experience.
I think when I write a post or when I read your posts, not one second is wasted. It’s worth the time, even when I don’t have it. I take this time, because away from reviews or tips you can learn something while blogging, what you can’t learn on a university or in school : togetherness, empathy and tolerance. And it seems that our real world need such features…urgently…
At last some practise about social networks & blogging:
Speedy had a contest and guess what? I WON! On thursday a post-guy came to my crib and gave me a mail.
It came from ASPCA, a humane organization what provides effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States.
It’s a first aid kit for pets! wow!
And it’s a real one, with antiseption solution, eye cleaner, dressing material and a first aid instruction.
It’s important to have such a first aid kit on board if you travel with the car, while hiking or on dog shows or dog contests. Even when you only walk around your house, as we could see some weeks ago.
I immediately brought it to my show-bag and it will travel with me by now to all places I visit. Although this set is perfect to be prepared for an emergency case, I hope that I or one of my friends will never need it.
Many Thanks to you, Captain Speedy, many thanks to ASPCA and many thanks to all of you for the time to read my post.
Oh wait… I have to invite a blogger for joining the tour…
