Writing Frog Acrobatics


Obviously it has taken me ages to train them to do this, but I like to feel it was worth it.

This would seem to represent some sort of Palace Revolution with the red spotty ones going from "designated driver" status (i.e. the bottom of the heap) to kings of the froggy pyramid in one giant leap.

PS. What are they using as a litter tray? Are those words of encouragement from your editor?

So funny - they look so real! The yellow one looks like he/she's got a squashed head. The top right one seems have a facial expression of "I'm here under extreme duress". The top left one looks just about to topple over...

Talking re Litter Trays ( Adrian )...Can you give my cats some clues, CLare? They often sit twined together on my desk beside me but they never manage to make such colourful body patterns.
And I bet the frogs dont bat the keyboard with their paws or swish their tails around if you dare ignore them...Jan

Just took another look as it's so good - hubba hubba yum yum!
Those frogs of yours do make me laugh, Clare!

Just love those froggies!! So distracting and friendly and what an appetite for display.

Adrian: Heh, heh - I feel affronted that just because the words 'plot','scene" and 'simplistic' are clearly visible you assume that the frogs' litter tray consists of editorial comments on my latest literary masterpiece*

Crimefictionreader: Yes, that red spotted 'designated driver' one (thank you Adrian) seems to be a particularly cantankerous character.
'Meldrew,' I tell him, 'you just get up there and keep your mouth shut,' This is an approach I found equally effective in the classroom (when I was teaching HUMAN PYRAMIDS LEVEL 1).

Jan: My recommendation is to buy plastic replicas, give them all the expensive cat food and lavish attention on them especially when the real cats are in the room. That way they will get the message that the squeaky cat is not necessarily the one which gets the grease...either that or tie their tails together. For further information see the book CAT PYRAMIDS: GOING THE EXTRA WHISKER.

Chiefbiscuit Thank you (on behalf of frogs, especially Meldrew).

*Unfortunately you're spot on there, though, Adrian!

Are they playing Twister?

As a collector of frog representations, I heartily approve of this pyramid of frogs.

I really fancy the anchorite cell as a retreat in which to write. Are all writers natural anchorites...?
