Just in case you haven't met, I would like to introduce Grumpy Stone, my writing mascot. He was found on Frinton Beach in Essex, England, Grumpy Stone is the inspiration behind the character Grumpy Sponge, who appears in the Delilah Dusticle stories. He really enjoys living in Gothenburg and can be regularly found hanging out in cafes.
He also likes hanging out with his friends. Click the stop motion animation below to see them hanging out together.
I definitely recommend getting a writing mascot. Whenever I am looking for some fun inspiration, all I have to do is look at Grumpy Stone. Does anyone else have a writing mascot?
