Bilby the … ahem … bilby is my new writing mascot. He perched on the arm of my reading chair for the photo since that was a better light than the crowded corner of my desk where he now lives.
I know I failed in the naming game. Give an author a break. We’re always having to think up new names for characters. I decided bilby, cute though he is, could simply be “Bilby”.
Bilbies are an Australian marsupial. More info at the Save the Bilbies site.
