CECILIA BRAINARD shares, "My son set up my computer with two screens, which is really cool because I can write on one screen, and I can use the other for research or for checking my emails or social media. When I’m at my computer, my two cats are with me. They parade in front of the screens until they settle down. They like to lay on my lap, but sometimes it’s impossible for me to work, so they end up in the drawer and or one in the drawer and the other nearby. (The picture shows Che in the drawer and Tesla to the right.) Che and Tesla are my muses and have ushered me through a novel (The Newspaper Widow), a novella (Melisande in Paris), plus so many other literary projects. They are my muses. Bless them."
