Seriously, why does the story have to unfold itself, complete with good dialogue, while I’ve only got 5 minutes to get to work?!?
Why can’t it unfold itself while I’m drinking a steaming cup of Earl Grey tea and staring at my computer screen waiting for stupid inspiration to strike?!?
Obviously inspiration likes seeing me panic while I try to simultaneously apply eyeshadow with one hand and jot down notes with the other. And no, I’m not ambidextrous, so you can imagine how that turned out.
I think my muse lives in the hot water heater and only shows up when I’m in the shower.
On a good note, this grand “writing everyday experiment” is proving fruitful. Inspiration is flowing! Now if I can just get it to flow while I’m at the computer…
Of course, that was before work. Once I left work, I came home and had to record tonight’s Final Cut in Movies Radio Show. Then out to eat. Got back around 8:45, walked dog, answered some email, looked over copy for Dark Oak Press… Once again, I’m now trying to meet my “write something today” quota after hours…
Thank goodness I’m a night owl. And thank goodness the iPhone has an MS Word app… One of the first times I’ve written something almost half asleep… We’ll see if it’s a recognizable language tomorrow afternoon.
Lesson: always have a notebook handy 🙂
