Over at the JFB blog I offer advice about pets for writers. I should point out I don’t own any pets. But Sam from JFB did add excellent gifs.
Writers are often solitary creatures, and this isn’t always a good thing. You start talking to yourself and people look at you strangely, especially when you start to do it outside of the home environment; in the supermarket for example. So, I propose all writers should have a pet of some description – that way, at least you’re talking to something instead of an imaginary friend – even if its a stuffed animal because you can’t be trusted to remember to feed a living creature (plants are probably also not for you).
Each pet gets an ego rating – as in how well they’ll affect your ego – on a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being ‘This pet will make you hate yourself’ and 10 being ‘This pet believes you are a god’.
The rest is here.
