View Full Version : The muses pick such strange hours, don't they?

So I can barely manage to write a sentence all morning. I go to work, come home tired, try to write again and still can't produce anything but utter drivel. Then I waste some hours away reading, attempt to go to bed, when wouldn't ya know it? I'm riled from my slumber by a very persistent muse who helps me bang out the opening scene of an old story that's been simmering for a while. I just looked at the clock and noticed it's nearly four in the morning. I must be insane.

Can't Zeus' daughters manage to get scheduled normal work hours? Sheesh.

You're assuming that Zeus' daughters are in your time zone.

Well they need to get their asses on EST. I can't settle for this night owl writing for much longer. I'm supposed to be up in a few hours.

OH well. Better late than never.

The muse is fickle, though one thing a muse can't resist is the aroma of hard work.

My muse has decided that Friday at 9:15 is a good time to work and has kicked into gear on how to redo my story so that it actually makes sense.

Of course I am at work, so I am jotting down notes while on my break.

Also, La Grange makes a great 'Get It Started' song in case you needed to know.

I have no idea, honestly. Mine comes when I'm in the shower. Or when there isn't any pen or paper around. Or when I'm asleep.

Keep a whiteboard marker in the shower. And a pen & post-it pad in your purse/jacket/car.

Sleep I can't help ya with. :)
