Jessica Galbreth’s Fairy of Inspiration but I like to think of her as my muse.

Good morning, my gothlings.  It’s dark and gray outside with the promise of thunderstorms all day.  Perfect writing weather for me.  My Muse decided last night to roll over in bed, stretch, yawn and wake me up about 2 am this morning.  You know how they are.  Your Muse ignores you no matter how much you plead and try to get her to help but when she’s ready, it doesn’t matter where you are or what time it, you’re going to have to write.  Whether you’re one of those people who carries a notebook and pen  everywhere or has to get right to the computer.  But I’m not going to complain.  My Muse is a lovely, creative creature surrounded by stars, so I should know she likes to be nocturnal and the best daytime writing comes on the darkest days.  Plus, she got me over a rough patch.  I’m going to have to find some yellow flowers and a crystal quartz to keep by my computer to keep happy and close.  Just so you don’t think I’m extra crazy, yellow flowers are supposed to draw the muses and clear crystal quartz magnifies any spell you use it in.

I’m excited to write today.   I can’t wait, some coffee, my cigarettes Of course I’ll have to get other stuff done so I can devote most of my attention to her guidance.  She just can’t have all of it, kids and the husband and all, you know.  🙂

Now I’m not saying the extra Xanax for the emergency trip to the dentist and the pain pills he gave me didn’t help either.  I’m a panic attack, tense kind of girl and the more relaxed I am, the easier it is to slip into my character head and her life.  And this may sound weird but my Muse and I really like some of Havarti cheese and pepperoni.  Whatever it takes, right?
