From time to time, my muse rears her head and talks to me. I’ve managed to capture some of these conversations and am sharing them with you. I will warn you that my muse is a potty-mouth. I have no control over what she tells me. Sorry. Muse: It’s about fucking time you listened to ...

Muse: Hey! Nice map. Me: Thanks. It’s about time you gave me a compliment. Muse: Too bad it’s not done. Me: Yeah. I know. It’s getting there, though. Muse: Maybe you should finish it?

Muse: Are you sure you want to draw the map like that? Me: What? You’re a cartography expert now? Muse: You’d be surprised. Me: Okay. Then what should I do with what I’ve got? Muse: Scrap it. Don’t color in the buildings by hand. Do it with GIMP. Me: Hrmm… Yeah. That would save me ...

Me: Hello. *silence* Me: Hello? *more silence* Me: Hello! *even more silence* Me: HELLO!!!! *echoes of my own voice returning to me from the ether* Me: Huh. Odd. I guess I’ll get back to writing this short story.

My muse has been strangely silent this week. I think it’s because the analytical half of my brain has overwhelmed any possible creative juices I may have flowing with the map making (I’m more logical about maps than artistic) for the upcoming setting of the new series. I’m roughly halfway done with the map, and ...

Muse: What ya doin’? Me: Working on my map like you told me to. Muse: Oh. The city? Me: Yeah. Muse: *points over my shoulder at the map* What’s with the little black blocks? Me: Those are buildings. Muse: What kind of buildings? Me: The built kind. I don’t know yet. I’m not going to ...

Monday Muse: Black Forest Fire Edition

Sorry folks. The muse has been silenced by the Black Forest Fire. I had all of last week between jobs (today is the first day at the new job). I had planned to crank out 10,000 words or more on the novel, but that just didn’t happen. A huge fire broke out in Black Forest ...
