So after MONTHS of silence, the Muses finally deign to help me out of this writing rut. And how do they resolve my latest block?
Add to the already-crowded menagerie that exists in our fictional town of Berryville.
We already have William the aging tabby, the calico Salome (mother to William’s 5 kittens), Kaiser the German shepherd K-9 officer, Mao, the bullying Maine Coon/ Siamese mix and Loqi, the obnoxious gray parrot.
So what’s one more animal?
Well, the plot required a nonhuman but relatively bipedal creature, and so I came up with a Capuchin monkey.
The as-yet-unnamed primate will play a pivotal role in the plot, in keeping with the light-hearted hilarity I am looking for in this novel. *happy smile*
