It feels good to be creating again
I’ve noticed that when I am not writing I get a bit cranky, but unfortunately, I cannot always write. Editing, revising, and promoting of already finished work takes up most of my time.
I see status updates on myspace and facebook, with other writers touting their current goals and achievements. It’s always bittersweet seeing someone announce “Hey, I wrote 2k words today.” I wish that were me.
Somedays I feel I will never find the time to write again. Then something miraculous happens. The muse appears, from out of nowhere, and starts urging me to drop everything and create.
Let me tell you this; when the muse talks you (or at least I) cannot help but listen. My muse is very adamant when she wants to be heard. Ideas will pop in my head and a sudden drive to write takes over. It doesn’t matter what else I have to do, I must find time to write all of these wonderful ideas down. Thank goodness I always have a notebook with me. It’s as if a spirit is demanding I take notice and put the pieces of her plot puzzle together.
Well, thankfully after a long hiatus, she is talking again. She’s delivered me the plot to the third installment of the Immortalis series.
Thank you muse. It feels good to be creating again
