Many writers have pets as muses. I’m no exception. I find that each one has their specific categories. For example, the last blog post showed a picture of Elwood. He’s the muse for action sequences. I don’t know why, but when he’s near, the action writing flows better.
Today, I’m writing a first kiss scene for my next book, Birthright. My boy, Jake, gets the job of muse for that. He’s neutered, so he doesn’t understand things like sex, romance, or love. But, he does everything with passion: meows, eats, plays, licks, meows, purrs, meows… Just look at him. Doesn’t he seem to know everything?
