Dog. And the ebook I'm writing about him.

Ozzie's a 50-pound pit bull mix with crazy ears.
We've had Ozzie for a year and a half now and he's probably about 5 years old at this point (not sure because we got him from a shelter and they weren't sure of his age). For the first full year that we had him, I regretted the decision and wished there were some way we could give him back. Technically, we could have, but it would have broken my husband's heart, so I muddled through the adjustment period.

In November, during National Novel Writing Month, I churned out a 50,000-word draft of a memoir of my experience. The working title is I Never Wanted a Dog. This month I've begun the process of rewriting and reorganizing those chapters to make it a proper manuscript. My plan is to self-publish it as an ebook, just for the fun of doing it.

Readers of this blog would recognize content from posts, but most of it is original. I find that announcing my plan to the world keeps me committed, so here it is: I'm revising the manuscript by the end of spring. Then I'll find some friends who are willing to read it and give feedback. I will publish this ebook and Ozzie will make his mark on the world!
