An - Throw - Po - Morph - Ick

My novel is coming along steadily, but not at the pace it needs to be at in order to finish 50 000 words by the end of the month (it's still under 8000 right now). Still, I gotta try, and that means I can't waste time blogging. Unless it's about the novel. Which this is. Hi.

Oh, it also has a tentative title now. "Anthropomorphic". I like one-word titles, and this one pretty much sums up the concept. If the school system failed you in the vocabulary department, look it up. Then see below for an example of an anthropomorphically rendered squirrel. Then, as homework, please use the word "anthropomorphically" at least 3 times in conversation today. Thanks.

here's some novel fodder for you: two years ago, black squirrels did about $1600 in damage to the engine compartment of my car

they knawed through the central wiring harness

personally, I think the squirrels hated me

they did it on purpose, and took delight in it

I do not want my date to be anthropomorphically challenged.

50,000 sounds like a ton.

I had a staring contest with the squirrel looking through my living room window. He beats me every time.

That guy anthropomorphed from a truck into a robot. Is that good?
