Sometimes, the most important thing to have while writing is just a little inspiration.
And what ever could possibly be more inspiring than a kitty? :)
Ever since my boycat Halo (see header above!) was a tiny little baby and not the inexplicable behemoth of a furball that he has grown into today, he has had an irrepressible desire to Help Mom.
Mostly, “Helping Mom” seems to entail chewing on my fingers. Or my elbow. Or attempting to eat my hair. (Which I suppose at least prods you into working faster…)
But sometimes, he actually almost manages to get it right! ♥
One of his very first favourite places to explore were my bookcases — clearly, he was ready and willing to start learning the craft! Or something.
Then, Halo discovered his very first writing tool — Pansy, my own first laptop! (Halo being a pansy himself, they were a match made in heaven.)
And more recently, Halo has rediscovered his love of yet another writing tool: Pens!
He’s always loved them, really — they’re so fun to chew on when Mommy moves them around, and if you make a loud enough snorking sound while doing so, she may even stop just to stare at you!
But now, he is learning how to repurpose them as well! Specifically, entire cups full of them, standing on their ends.
Apparently, said ends also make for a really awesome pillow.
And who am I to argue with a cat?
