Roku and Slick Getting Ready to Pounce
Like most people I have my off days. My writing to-do list sits in front of me and it’s the last thing I want to tackle. I find myself wandering onto my favorite blogs and spending way too much time on Facebook and Twitter. Anything but write! On days when my motivation is practically zero, only my four legged buddies get me out of my funk.
Slick, GT, and Roku know just the right time to pop in and visit. GT (named for the cute little white goatee she sports on her chin) will come up and rub against my leg wanting attention. She forces me to pull my eyes away from the screen and get busy on our pet fest. By the time I done I’m ready to get back to the business of writing. My fingers fly across the keyboard energized by GT’s long luxurious fur. Slick, a tuxedo cat, (who earned his name by being one smooth operator) is the size of a large pug and manages to know just when to beg for more food. I have to get up and run downstairs and fill his dish. He’s the boss of the house for sure. Once I’ve fed Slick, I’m happy to head to the office and get back into my story.
GT and Roku Taking a Break
Roku, a blue tabby, (whose name means six in Japanese ) is the new comer. She’s still a growing girl so she’s the terror of the house. A polydactyl cat, Roku has six toes on her front paws and five on her back. I swear this makes her run like a rocket all over the house. Roku loves to chase GT and Slick up and down the stairs and generally cause a ruckus. You’d think this would drive me nuts as I like to write in a peaceful house. But I always laugh at the scampering of paws and the way they meow like crazy to egg each other on. All I can do is smile.
So the next time you find yourself doing anything but writing, look to your four legged friends to inspire you to crank out those pages.
