Yay Yeepet.com!

As those of you who have been following my freelancing adventures know, I've been working for an awesome pet social and information site called Yeepet.com. I adore it -- some of my most fun is had doing pet related stuff. But anyway, this is why I'm posting today:

So much to share today. It's nice to feel like all my work is generating something! W00t!

1. All the storms lately are a reminder that we need to be prepared, not just for our human families, but for our furry and feathered friends too! Disaster Preparation For Your Pets gives you a guide on how to get your animal babies ready for any emergency!

2. Winter, spring, summer or fall, it's any season for the crazy-making pain and pressure of sinusitis! Learn some simple ways to ease the misery: How to Get Relief For Sinusitus.

3. Magic is a fun literary theme. It's role in A Midummer Night's Dream is multilayered and interesting! Literary Themes: Magic in A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare.

4. More Shakespeare? And I'm not even a fan! But you know how I love to analyze female characters in literature... How about a Character Analysis: Cordelia in King Lear by William Shakespeare.

And finally...

5. Have you ever wondered how the idea of the government helping care for the elderly, sick, and poor came to be? Well, we can all thank Queen Elizabeth (sort of): How the Government Helped the Poor in Elizabethan England.

There should be a little something for a lot of tastes today! :)

Literature and Soup!

I don't think Lady Rowena gets enough love in literary scholarship. She's an interesting character. Character analysis: Lady Rowena in Ivanhoe, by Sir Walter Scott

It's time for richer fall soups. This one is a yummy addition to any meal, but works particularly well for Thanksgiving! Recipes: Creamy sweet potato soup

But mushrooms are delicious too. Recipes: Wild Mushroom Soup -- yum.

Hope everyone had a good holiday and is recovering okay from all the terrible weather!

Articles and site update.

One of the great debates in mythology: Was Queen Clytemnestra of Mycenae an adulterous, murderous harpy, or a righteous angry woman avenging the murder of her daughter? I examine this two thousand year old issue a little bit in Character Analysis: Clytemnestra in Electra by Sophocles.

Are you a procrastinator? I sure am. That bad habit shows itself a lot when I'm writing on a deadline! But it's worst in college, when you have deadlines all over the place. Check out Strategies to avoid procrastinating on college term papers.

I also changed the format of my freelance links page. It was getting to the point that one long list of articles by publish date was making it difficult to find anything, so I set up a nice grid showing articles by topic area. Take a look, if you like: http://hafowler.host56.com/articles.htm.

You know, I keep saying that Sunday is going to be my day off, but I either have a deadline, or I just automatically start working without thinking about it. Is that good or bad? I suppose it's good for my career, not so good for my brain... fingers... shoulders...wrists... etc.

I just love it so much!

Really REALLY short paranormal romance!

First fiction I've finished in quite a while. It's a 500 word short about what happens when two lovers of rival species meet again after 25 years. Will it be sweet, or will fangs and fur fly?

Two Sets of Fangs and a Cuppa Joe

Animal Health and Behavior!

Nobody like to think about shots, but if we want our fuzzy feline friends (say that ten times fast) to live a long, healthy life, we have to keep track of their vaccinations. "Recommended Vaccinations for Adult Cats" can be a guide on where to start if you didn't get your cat as a kitten.

A little bit more fun is "Common Instinctive Behavior in Dogs". Why do our dog buddies do some of the things they do? And what can we do about it, because, let's face it, some of those things are really annoying.

Please check out the articles, and as usual, any comments or feedback are welcome!
