PRIZES!! What should I name her?

I'm begging my parents for this cat that I found at the SPCA and she's so adorable! This picture is above ^ ^ ^
Her name for now is Gertrude. But I hate that name.
She's VERY lazy, loves being brushed, and enjoys the couch. We have not adopted her yet, but it seems like a 60% chance that we are getting her.
What should I name her?  SHE'S A GIRL!
Here are some names that I like::
Miss. Marple
Agatha (Agatha Christie)

Now, the contest is to pick out her name. YOU MUST submit at least four names, comment here with the names, and have an email.
The prize is a book cover/signature/avatar just for you! :)

Top 5 things you must have in your writing space.

I decided to make a little list of things you MUST absolutely have in your writing space. Read on if you want to find out what you need in your writing space.

1. Obviously, writing materials.
                  - - - A laptop is your best friend. If you're serious about writing, trying convincing your parents for a laptop. If you have an iPod/iPhone/iPad you can buy a sixty-five dollar keyboard that you can plug your iPod/iPhone/iPad into. if you don't have anything except for a computer in the T.V. room, or a computer that everyone shares, you should write mainly on the computer and print the current chapter you are working on out and then write in a notebook. That way, all you have to do is type it into the computer! If you don't have any electronics, then you can just use a notebook and pencil.
2. Get a desk and a door.
                  - - - This way you can have some privacy and a nice writing space for yourself. The door can close and keep everyone out, while your desk will prevent you from sleeping on the floor, couch, or bed.
3. Get your supplies and make sure they're in working order.
                  - - - This means, get what you need and make sure they work. Don't put dried up pens in your space, and when they do loose all their ink, just throw them out, or if you have the time, go to the store and get some more ink. Also, make sure you have notecards (clean) for plotting, and paper for printing/doodling.
4. Rewards for when you need encouragement.
                  - - - Buy yourself some candy, or if you're close to finishing your novel then get your self a video game or something big. Don't open anything until you reach your goal. Put it next to your monitor/screen/notebook and start writing. When you reach your goal, open it eat/play/drink/watch it!
5. Decorations are a great way to keep YOUR space personal.
                  - - - One thing that is a must for YOUR space, it decorations and personal items.  On my desk, I have a little gnome, a shell turtle, candles, and my granddad's navy medal thing that you would put on the shoulder of your uniform. I also have a poker chip and my diary on my desk too. If you add YOUR stuff to YOUR space, it will be better than a plain old desk with nothing on it.

I'm on Twitter. . .if you didn't know.

Happy belated Father's day! I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to say that on the actual day, but I was busy at the book store with my dad.
Well, switching to a different subject, I have a Twitter account and I have had one for a while. My writer/blogger friend Mercy, also has one to and we're following each other right now. :)
Here's my writing space by the way, I asked Mercy about her space and she sent me a pic, so now I'm showing you mine!
I just cleaned it!

Break up letter success!!

Here's the part of the novel that I wrote for the critique group writing prompt; Rejection!

Dear Millie,

I'm terribly sorry I had to do this through a letter, this might save our asses and make me look better, now that we're both sleeping with other people. This note will be the last memory you'll ever have of me, I'm bouncing and not looking back. You'd be much better off finding a person that can deal with your drama. 

I'm glad this is done and we're going separate directions for good. I think you'll find someone to have a decent conversation with a person of the opposite gender. And hopefully we will be incredibly far away.

Have a nice life slut,

Truthfully, I had a little help from a breakup letter generator. Who knew the internet had that for lazy dumpers? I edited all of it, so there is only on sentence that is from the site, that is sentence one.

Writing a break up letter for my novel. . .FAIL

For TSWATWCG we are doing a writing prompt and the prompt is Rejection. . . I've never been rejected and I can't write a break-up letter. EPIC FAIL. By the way, the book is about these twelve cats, one dog, and four magical girls. I'm still trying to connect them all and get the plot down. By the way, we have seven members for TSWATWCG!
Today was the last day of school, and the buses sat in the bus loop for like ten minutes so we could say 'bye' to our teachers, well I ran off the bus and hugged my Spanish teacher. She said, 'Don't forget to study some Spanish this summer'. XD Thanks!
Well, I gotta go to bed and watch some Poirot (he has an epic mustache). :)

Love ya'll,

Okay, sorry 'bout that folks.

I decided that I'm not moving and I've deleted the blog that I was going to move to. I felt guilty for leaving this guy behind *hug* so I'm staying here! No need to run over there and follow me, just stay right here. I'm also going to be changing the look of my blog and there will be a few changes, such as a better look, new gadgets, and a few deleted posts. 
I have also decided that I will be starting a Writing Critique Group just for us teens! It's called The Some What Amazing Teen Writers' Critique Group (TSWATWCG for short).
This writing critique group is special because teens (12 - 17 year olds) that are serious about writing are the only ones allowed to join. For this group (and really for any group) we would like you to submit a writing sample and fill out a very short form. We only ask you to do this to see if you are serious about writing.
The schedule is very confusing, but I'll try to explain it. We have a Saturday meeting every week that is from 1:30 PM to 2:30 PM and every TWO weeks we have a meeting on Wednesday that is from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM. You must stay in the chat box for at least half the meeting! Here's our calender.
The meetings will be hosted here.

Here is the form that you MUST email the form to me or to the TSWATWCG (@gmail.com) email.
First name or pen name:
B-day (month and day so we can celebrate, if you don't want to tell us, we'll set is as the day you were accepted):How long have you been writing:
What genre are you mainly writing in:What is your current project about:
Sample writing (no less than 300 words no more than 1,000):
