A cats paw (Blog marathon post 16)


If you see this next to my bed by 3.30 pm, you can be sure that it was a day well spent and that I would have left the bed only to make that cup of black coffee, and returned back to my writing.
I usually work from 9.00 am to 3.30 pm. I stop when the children come back from school.

There were three cups today. And come to think of it, I have worked a great deal today on the editing of my new book. There is a small chance that it might be out this December! I am really pleased with this very unusual novel that i have written. I am certain that you will like it too. But that is all I can disclose at the moment!

I  alsolearnt a new word today. Cat's paw.



Is having a Cat's paw in your life a good thing or a bad? I think it is terrible. I would hate to think that someone was a Cat's Paw in my life. It would be a disrespect not only to me, but also to the person in question.
So what is the connection between Cat's paw and my new book? In my new book, there is a situation,where the protagonist feels like a Cat's paw. Whether she was justified or not--I can't tell!

To feel used is a  horrible feeling. And if you constantly feel used by people, it is time to rethink about that relationship.

  4. Many a times knowingly or unknowingly, we end up being someone's cat's-paw. The day we realize that we have been used, especially when we have given everything to the relationship, we end up being shattered and also may not feel trusting anyone
