First off, thanks to Ben Hubberman for using my suggestion for the daily prompt on Friday. Read it here.
Today I will write about working myself in a corner using defense, excuse , effort and furry.
The last post I wrote about the cat worried me and I just couldn’t come up with an appropriate ending. And in my defense, I can say it was the busiest time ever for me, but that is really an empty excuse that doesn’t hold up–even I know that since I did find time to play scrabble. (but I’m talking creative effort here. That takes more effort than a round of scrabble.) Which is another excuse. I’m running out of them at this point.
Another writer found herself is a somewhat similar situation. I don’t know if she writes about cats or plays scrabble, but she sound a lot like me. Alienora’s response to the prompt is here.
But anyway, back to my situation. I hope it is alright that my little cast of characters in the cat story do not resolve their problem. I feel most sorry for the cat (surely his actions call for punishment) but if you love the furry friends like I do, it’s hard to imagine a harsh ending.
So forgive me. I worked myself in a corner and no matter how long I worried, those words just kept me a prisoner there and no amount of waiting would help. No my friends, that little tableau I painted will just have to stay frozen until some inspiration grabs me and set me free.
Perhaps someone can write their version of how it ended. Please do and I will post it. Maybe you could turn it into haiku or poetry. Ruth effectively used the prompt in prose. Another blogger wrote a haiku Here . Moving toward the light wrote a poem I can relate to.

I am indeed elated to know that you loved my poetry, when I wrote this, I had no idea it was so good until now. Thanks.
Well, you are good. Continue on knowing no fear of corners.
