Is this thing still here?

As I write this, one of these little devils has his head resting on my shoulder like he's editing my work.  He's not this little anymore. This is actually a picture of his brothers and sisters.  He's now full grown and 147 pounds. There's nothing like trying to finish a book while a Great Dane looks over your shoulder. He just stands behind my office chair, and every time I turn my head, there's a cold nose on my cheek. After months of this, he got his way and ended up as a character in my WIP. Talk about being assertive. I have to admire his determination. He seems to be more relaxed now, although, he's still supervising from time to time. Has this happened to you? Has someone or something in your life ended up in your writing when you never really planned it that way? Please disclose.

Happy Weekend!


  1. Persistance usually pays off in some form.

    I had planned to put one of my MIL's cats into a story, but it didn't work out that way, but maybe in the future he will show up.

  2. I haven't yet. But I am a dog lover and plan on adding one of the many dogs I've fallen for into my novel one day.


Thank you for your comments. Me loves them!
