You Can Lead a Horse to Wine, but You Can’t Make Him Write a Novel.

Lead a Horse to WaterI’ve been thinking about motivation and the thought occurred to me that perhaps if I only allowed myself wine *when I was writing* – I’d get this next book knocked out PDQ. (That means “pretty damn quick,” for you laymen out there.) But, then again, that would require discipline. And self-control. And saying no to wine. Plus, I have about another 40,000 words to go. And that might be a lot of wine.

On a somewhat unrelated note, I googled “wine” and “horses” (don’t act like you’ve never done that) and I got that dandy picture above. But I also found this:

Horse bottle holderWhich seems kind of inappropriate. But, I actually have this bottle holder except that mine is a moose. Now, I’m not sure if it is the horse that makes it look pornographic, or if I’ve been in denial about the fact that my moose appears to be getting raped by a wine bottle, too. And maybe Steve wasn’t being a pervert when he told me what it looked like my moose was up to.

I linked the picture to a store where you can buy your very own so that if you felt like the only thing missing from your life was a horse deep-throating a bottle of wine – your life can now be complete.

    I think it’s your mind that made it look pornographic. But, this is the Linda Lovelace of horses taking in that wine bottle.

      Hahahahaha. I have been accused of having a dirty mind, so no argument there.

        Well, I won’t get into whose mind is dirtier, but I think when bestiality is involved, you win.

        Now hold on…there is no human involved…just a wine bottle. Settle down there. I think you just surged ahead in the polls 😉

        Sorry, where is the wine bottle going and what made it pornographic? I didn’t know there was an animated necessity in bestiality.

        Well, I thought a human-animal component was required. And we’ve officially given this topic more discussion than allowed by polite society.

        Don’t look this gift horse in the mouth.

    Guess I’m naive. I thought it looked like the horse was chewing on the bottle top until I read what you had written. 🙂

      Yeah, I thought my moose was just thirsty but my husband disagreed. These people with dirty minds are ruining us 😉
