(no subject)

A few days ago my muse woke up, her hair sticking out in all directions, and said, “Hey! That would make a great story!”

I know that some of the writers on my friends’ list - d_michiko_f comes to mind - finish a WIP and are able to start a new WIP without too much time away from the writing process.

I do not seem able to re-focus that nimbly. I finished my big 68,000-word YA in December (thanks in part to jbknowles’s challenge) and spent the next month tightening and polishing. That manuscript is now tiptoeing out into the world.

My muse fell asleep once the revision process was finished – she has not roused herself since, except for the occasional writing exercise. She was spent. I call upon the muse of … um … essay-writing, I suppose, for my LJ entries. Perhaps my weekday-single-parent gig keeps my creative muse drained.

God bless vacations!

Spring break showed up, ushering in my tired husband – ready for his week with the family. We packed, we patted the pups goodbye, and we put our trust in Alaska Airlines.

Our week was divided between Half Moon Bay

and Hangtown.
