I’ve tied myself for last month.

The daily prompt for Instawrimo was Writing Buddies. Since I usually prefer writing alone, this was a bit of a trick. I decided to share a picture of my cats or the dog, but a whole morning of chasing them all over the house produced only blurry pictures of the backs of their heads, as they turned away and stopped being cute the second they saw the camera.

Until I gave up and decided to do a photo of an inanimate writing aide, that actually does usful things, like prop up my phone and let me rubber duck debug story problems. Then, all of a sudden, a certain someone just had to be in the picture.

The writing buddy on the left came of the clearance rack at ToysRUs; the one on the right found us.
