Playing the part of blogger today while Danita plays the role of new Mom..... me.
Okay, the bottom photo is which of the following?
a. The newest in cat hair accessories?
b. A new twist on an old throwing game called "Ring the Cat's ears?"
c. A frustrated writer's momentary diversion?
Ah, that was too easy.
This is Lucy, my writing companion. She is a gooey mess of feline love depite this photo which makes her look slightly demonic. I chose her from a litter being given away by a tried looking woman and her two little girls outside of Walmart about six years ago because she looks almost exactly like one of the cat's on THE BABY SEASON cover (the one on the top.) Did that come out so teensy you can't even see it? Trust me.
So, Lucy is the tangible result of a book I wrote and today, while I am struggling to come up with the hero's motivations and weaknesses and what he needs to learn that doesn't come across so darn depressing the reader will have to go into six months of therapy when she's finished reading the book, Lucy looks like a darn good reward.
How about you? How do you reward yourself?
