I'm not sure if I want to keep that as her name. I wanted to name my next cat Kali, but she doesn't seem like a 'Kali'. She is a small boned, very delicate kitten, so delicate, I am almost afraid she'll break.
She lost her eye due to an infection that wouldn't heal and eventually she went blind in the eye, so they removed it.
Damien hid under the bed, all growly and grouchy, for the first couple of hours. When he came out to sit at his favorite window, he was still being a grumpy-butt, then went and hid in the bathroom.
I was playing with Maryann with a bird on a bungee and Damien came out. They sniffed noses and he didn't growl, so that's improvement.
When I first got home, Maryann was everywhere, including the kitchen sink, running, jumping and sliding on the linoleum in the kitchen. I couldn't tell if her shadow was scaring her or if she was attacking it, but she was having a blast. Finally, the balls with the bells inside are getting played with.
I never really thought Damien was all that big. Sure, he's a rollypolly cat, but after holding and petting the small and delicate Maryann, he feels like an over weight bulldog instead of a chubby tabby.
The picture was taken at the shelter where I got her. Terrible lighting and I'd worked all day, so I looked pretty rough and about 10 pounds heavier than I am.
There's a lot of blogs and posts for breaking writer's block. Most of them seem to run along the same lines. Perhaps I'm just a little weird, but quite a few of the suggestions I've found have the opposite effect on me.
Go for a quick walk.
This can work for me depending on where I go and the walks are rarely quick. Mindset is also important. Don't think about writer's block. That's not why you're there. You're there to enjoy yourself, to soak in the atmosphere.
Sure, take a walk. Bring along a notepad. If you have a camera, bring it along too. Go somewhere that has a connection to what you will be writing. It doesn't have to be a literal connection, even a place that has the feel of the scene you're working on can be inspiring. Sit and soak in your surroundings. Take notes of the things that speaks to you, the things that stand out to you.
Write your thoughts, your impressions. Take note of scents and sounds. Take pictures or make little sketches. It doesn't matter if you're not an artist. I can't even draw a circle, but if I still try, if nothing else, I can manage a stylized image that still captures the spirit of what caught my interest.
What are people doing? Are they riding bikes, jogging, are there kids skateboarding? Take note of how they move, their expressions and how they interact with each other. Listen to their voices, the tones of the speech, the cadence of the language. You might even hear a snippet of a conversation that will trigger an idea for another scene or even another story. Don't ignore it, write it down.
By the time I get home, I'm usually ready to sit down and write.
