The Midnight Writer

Have you ever been about to shut down the laptop for the day and go to bed when a sudden insight into a scene overtakes you, so you think with excitement, well, I’ll just sit down and add that part or make that change, it’ll just take a minute, and then you get into the work in progress, and look up to discover, holy hell, it’s ninety minutes later?

Yes, it’s at once irritating, satisfying, annoying, and exhausting. That damn muse has no sense of time.

Speaking of time, time to write like crazy, at least one more time.

  1. you show the muse brochures, videos and still it doesn’t listen. for me the muse hits just minutes after i turn off the lights, the little dickens seems to hide just off stage waiting, waiting.
