HOW TO CATCH A HUMAN (11TH INSTALLMENT)

“From over there.” Munchkin replies as he points towards the way he came from.

“Why are all of you here?” Jelly scratches her head.

“Jelly we need your help.” Shorty walks up to her.

“What happened to your fur, Shorty?” Jelly looks at her with a puzzled look on her face.

“Doe did it with his doe-nuts he was making to try to use as bait to catch a human. They were nasty tasting and they turned my fur rainbow colors. That is why we need your help.” Shorty wraps her arms around her leg as she finishes telling Jelly her tale.

“Oh my, that is not good. You definitely cannot feed that to humans, no telling what it will do to them.”

“We need you to tell us what humans eat. So we don’t kills them.” Emmykins replies.

“Yes, Yes, You need to go to town and find a book that has some recipes that will show you how to make food for humans.” Jelly tells them.

“Who wills go?” Munchkin shrugs his shoulders and raises his palms up.

“I can’t go, they are still looking for me.”  Jelly replies in fear.

“I will go.” Hoss flies up on the limb above Jelly.

“Me and Emmykins will go too.” Shorty states with her shoulders thrown back.

ONE OF THOSE DAYS

Have you ever had one of those days where you are all set to sit down and write, with your computer, paper or pencil in front of you. You sit down, and nothing. Not a d@$% thing goes from your brain to the page. The more you stare the more of nothing you get. That has what the last couple of days has been like for me. I don’t know if it is because that my knee is paining me more or the pain medication is making me a little more loopy. I just can’t seem to get my brain to function right now.

I guess not working 47+ days and being on a leave of absence trying to get my knee fixed is stressing me out. Must be a little bit of cabin fever. I wanted to try to finish the book my sister and me are working on, and to work on the urban fantasy novel that I was working on before I hurt my knee. I guess I am just having one of those days, and the more I try to use my brain the more it hurts.  I will probably just do a little research and maybe it will jar something loose in my brain that will get me to writing on both of these stories. I would really like to get both of them done.

Now if I can just pry my sister of her Guild Wars 2 video game, maybe she can give me some input on the story we are working on. If you have any suggestions of what you do to get over writer’s block, let me know. I would really appreciate the feed back. It is very frustrating some days when you have some idea of what you want to say, but you just can not put it to paper. So on that note , it is getting late and need to take some more medicine for my headache and go to bed. I will talk with you tomorrow.

HOW TO CATCH A HUMAN (TENTH INSTALLMENT)

“What are we going to do? We can’t feed these to a human.” Shorty was still rubbing her tongue with the fern leaf, trying to get the bad taste out of her mouth. “If they turned my fur colors, no telling what it would do to a human.”

“Yeah I could have really hurt someone feeding them this.” Doe replies with a sad face.

“If only we knew what humans eats?” Emmykins replies, while shrugging her shoulders and turning her palms up.

Elmo looks at everyone and replies, “Wouldn’t Jelly knows what they eat, or where we can get information on what they eat?”

Everyone looks at Elmo like he was the smartest animal in the forest. For at that moment he was.

“Yes, Yes Jelly would know exactly what to do.” Hoss replies hopping from foot to foot and flapping his wings.

“Yes, let’s all go to Jelly’s!!” Everyone shouts and runs to Jelly’s place.

As they approach Jelly’s place they hear mumbling and the sound of things being thrown around. “I know I put it here…hmmm or did I put it over there?” They see Jelly standing in a sea of books all around her scratching her head with a puzzled look on her face.

“Jelly, Jelly, Jelly, and guess what guess what?” Munchkin hops up to Jelly in extreme excitement.

Jelly jumps up and quacks with fright. “Oh my, mother goose where the feathers did you come from?”

WRITER’S BLOCK

I will be late in publishing the next installment of “HOW TO CATCH A HUMAN”. We are having a little bit of writer’s block. The last installment my niece and nephew helped us out. We are going to try to work on it today, depending if we don’t have any company come over. It has really been fun writing this story. I have had many laughs coming up with different scenarios for these characters. We have some ideas that we are trying to add to the story, we just don’t know how we are going to do it. My sister wants to do a whole series based on these characters. She already has ideas for the books. My niece and nephew want to do a comic book strip to post on the site later on based on the characters.

We will have to wait and see if we will do it later on. We have big dreams and ideas, let’s just hope we haven’t bit off more than we can chew. If any of you have any comments about the story, posts, or the site, your suggestions and comments are welcome. This is all new to me and I am still learning the ropes.

I always loved to write, I just never thought I would do it for the public. I guess I over came my shyness.  Well, I need to do a few mundane chore before I write on the story. Also, I have to watch football “GO, COWBOYS!”.

HOW TO CATCH A HUMAN (NINTH INSTALLMENT)

“If you don’t believe me why don’t you try one” Doe was proudly showing his donuts off to his skeptic friends.

They all gave grim faces accept Munchkin who bravely bite’s into the donut as the other’s stare at Munchkin for his brave act.

Munchkin thumped his foot against the forest floor “Try it… try it…!” He bounces around in a delightful joy only to shove his face in the donuts.

As the others looked at the strange looking food, Shorty the all so spunky squirrel “It can’t be that bad” She acclaimed, pinching her nose she bravely took a bite of the strange donut. She ran around only to spit out the donuts.
“It’s that bad…” She shook her head as the others stared amazed as she changed from green to blue.

“Oh… My! What pretty colors!” Hoss accliamed, tinkering with his glasses, he gave a serious look.

Shorty ran sticking her head into a stream that happened nearby, as she sat up with a relieved sigh.

The others pointed and laughed, as she looked at her extremely fluffy fur.

“Never again will I eat donuts…” She rubbed her tongue with a fresh fern leaf to cure the taste of the extremely bitter treat.

Munchkin showed little concern for what was going on, only to enjoy his fine snack with great persistence.

Hoss sat next to Munchkin “I do not think these so called ‘Donuts’ are for human consumption.”

“What is Consumption?” Emmykins asked with a bewildered look upon her face.

Hoss glasses tinkled in the sunlight as he gave a serious looked he tap his head with his feathers “It means to eat or to use” He gave an explanation.
Emmykins giggled pointing at Munchkin “He’s consumptioning!” She giggle repeating herself as she bounce around Munchkin.

Doe gave a bewildered looked as he tried to figure out what was wrong with his donuts.
“I don’t understand?” He questioned his self.

“Oh… what is it this time Doe?” Hoss asked with extreme distraction.

“My Donuts turned Shorty into a rainbow!” He acclaimed.

Hoss shook his head “Tsk! Tsk! Humans cannot eat those contraptions.” He shook his head with the flick of his feathers. “No…No! This simply won’t do!” Hoss agreed with his self.
