Give The Muse A Challenge....

Okay, my muse is officially crazy. I mean, certifiably so. She apparently thrives on challenges that I personally deem impossible.

I went to bed last night knowing that today was the first day of the 20 page challenge. With visions of page after page of white space staring back at me after a long day at work, I tried to sleep. But my muse had different ideas.

So, she had me up at 3 this morning. Yep, as in a.m. And what praytell did she want to do at that time? Outline an entirely different sci-fi book. Yeah, like she doesn't already have enough stuff to do. So, we now have yet another idea piled up complete with outline by the way. The pantser muse actually decided to do an outline and character profiles.

Now if I can get her away from her new baby long enough, I really want to work on what I need to get done first. For today, she gets free reign I suppose.

I'm just hoping 3 a.m. won't become her favorite time to work...hehe.

Lordy, we're two peas in a pod today. I woke up at 4 a.m. this morning and couldn't get back to sleep. I got up at 4:20 and critiqued my cp's synopsis and did a little writing. I MUST get to bed now. It's going to be midnight soon!

Anytime you want to lend your Muse out, let me know!

Heck, anytime she wants to help me plot, I'll take her; even if it's at 3am (since that's prime awake-time for the insomniac that is me).

Good luck with all your stories. I hope your muse behaves--and if not, send her my way. :D

Kate -- Well, she seems to be making a habit of it... lol. It is amazing how much I accomplish at that time of the day though.

Lanie - Oh yes, you'd love my muse then because I think she'd never sleep if I let her. I'll ship her off if she gets too cranky:)
