I think some of you may be overthinking this...

Writing from a nonhuman perspective can simply be the non existence of stairs, because the nonhumans climb walls - more space inside ;D

Currently starting my FIFTH story, with the 4th different beast. And I only have tomorrow before a friend comes and visits me in Edinburgh until the 31st.
Sitting on 200 words and an idea. Dang.

Beautiful. Brings a tear to the eye, it does.

I now want to write about an adventuring party of molluscs . . .

I'd read all about your molluscs!!

Given that my computer broke and I'm writing from my phone this whole minimum word count thing is really making it hard to enter this month...

I really hope we can close this on the 1st? I've been seeing/taking care of my visiting friend from Australia since Monday and now I'll also have my last days at work. My only chance to write the ~800 missing words will be tomorrow evening after work. I might not make it.

No worries Nora - I'll keep it open for you.

Hmph, I decided to check and... there are actually three on the 2nd... and *gasp* two on the 3rd!

All the others are  ::)

Except the 4th wall one, a true anomaly I was never able to repeat.

Wow don't tempt me because if I can finish by the end of the first I have two evenings to work it, but I'm free the whole of the second. I would feel a certain degree of discomfort to Lankoise myself though.

Jmack has his goats, Nighteyes has his wolves, Lady_Ty has her dragons... Guess I should make tortoises my official animal and deity  ::)
