Good morning, friends!
Tuesday’s writing prompts are inspired by our cat, Beaucoup. Beaucoup is a French word meaning, “many.” I named him Beaucoup because with him, we had many kitty cats. We call him Beau for short!
He was found almost four years ago as a tiny kitten; too small to be away from his mother, but in too dangerous a spot to leave him there. He was found beside the road where construction workers had been feeding him potted meat and cutting off the bottoms of water bottles so he could drink. I heard his loud cries one Sunday afternoon and… the rest is history!
Beau lives inside our house with his three cat siblings, Nell, Brady Cat, and Lu-Lu. He loves to aggravate Nell, play fight with Lu-Lu, and sit outside on our screened in porch.
Here are some of my favorite Beau pictures. Hope they bring you some inspiration for writing today, as often animals do.
- Please Don’t Make Me Move!
2. HELP! The Ground Is So Far Away!
3. Help! I’ve Been Captured By A Giant!
4. But… I’m So Sleepy!
5. I Can’t Take It Anymore! He Is SO ANNOYING!
6. Whatever it is… I Didn’t Do It!
7. Hey You! What ‘cha doing?
Inspired, by the first picture, here’s my acrostic poem for the word, KITTEN!
Kitty sleeping through the noise
In Mom’s most-favorite plant
Talking in his sleep, he dreams
Telling tales of life on the porch
Even though he’s still scared of his new home,
Never will he be alone again.
Now – YOU TRY! What kind of writing work can you create with one of these photos today?
- A poem?
- An acrostic?
- A short story? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
Hope you have a wonderful Tuesday! Be safe and well!

Love your Beau! He looks like a kitty we loved for 18 yrs.Thanks for your posts. So nice to see those in this strange time. Question: is your email the same as several years ago? I have something you might want to read. 🙂
Hi Jetta! Beau was literally found by accident on the side of the road. He’s a mess. All kitten!
Yes, my email is the same. I’d love to look at something for you.
Thanks, Maria. It’s been professionally edited, and is sitting in some publishers’ slush piles. You knew it when :-)), so I’ll send to you. Of course, if you catch something that needs fixing, please do!
Oh, I am so very excited. I was hopimg that was going to be it. I hope that editor jumps at the chance to publish it!
