I sometimes disappoint new writers when they ask me about my writing habits. They’ll ask about what software I use, where I work, what rituals I perform before a writing session, what do I drink (coffee, tea, soda, gin…) and I usually stop them.
I like to read a lot of books on cognition and one thing that is repeated often is this: What you tell yourself is what you become.
It doesn’t happen overnight. It’s gradual. It takes constant repetition, but over time it takes root.
Paul Gibbons didn’t trust cats.
And he didn’t like being followed.
Especially by an insistent grey cat that didn’t seem to care. She demanded attention…and help.
But finding out why she needed him—only him—could prove dangerous and threatens to expose secrets he needs to keep hidden.
