Remember those flower questions?

Alright so two days ago, I did a questionnaire on flowers.

The questions kind of sparked something and my muse is waking up form her long slumber post finals.

I think I’d like to post some one shots that the flower questions inspired.  In the mean time, I’m still doing the questions a day.

My day has been… really lazy.  It’s ‘that time of the month’ and my cramps are kicking my ass.  I laid in bed all day watching youtube videos or reading or writing.  Really, it was attempting to write.

 

Story Time

So… I eventually went to bed around two in the morning last night.

My muse kept me awake.

I nearly tripled my word count in the span of about twelve hours.

I am tired, but more determined than ever to keep writing.

HOWEVER!

First, I have to get blood work and do a little shopping with mommy dear.

When I return, I’m going to write more in my story and write another post on here.  🙂

So tell me guys, what do you usually write about?  What inspires you?

A really strange morning that turned around thanks to a smoothie

Alright, so I keep waking up at all odd hours of the morning, which is both bad and strange since mono means I should be sleeping more… not less.

Today I woke up at five thirty.  And have not yet gone back to sleep.

Then our kitchen is something of a disaster right now, no one will empty the dish washer and we’ve got dishes that are slowly trying to take over the kitchen. They sent their warning message to me today by launching a champagne glass at me.  I deflected it, but the glass did not fare so well.  It shattered on the floor.  So I cleaned that up and I felt really bad about breaking a glass and so I sulked back to my room and worked on my paper project for today and got ready and then went to get paperwork signed.

While I was out getting paperwork done, I was listening to this absolutely awesome playlist that gave me an idea based on a gif I saw which sparked something else entirely!  In short, I started writing in starbucks while I drank my orange mango smoothie.  It was delicious.  🙂  The smoothie got me all excited and I got back home and I wrote…

I’m still writing and very pleased about it 🙂

THANK YOU SMOOTHIE AND AWESOME PLAYLIST

Tentative inspiration

I’m never sure if my muse is just teasing or is she intends to stick around for more than a few hours.  She can be inspired by the littlest things, like a picture of a woman putting on make up, or a piece of clothing, an outfit.  It can be a song, a quote, anything really will spark her.  I can’t tell if that means I’m not feeding her enough or if the feedings are too sporadic or if she just wants attention.  I’m hoping that I can do better soon.  I miss writing a lot.  I miss writing concretely.

Today was a bit of stretch.  I was taking care of my boy because he was sick.  So now I’m tired and I’m hoping he’s still doing alright now.

 

Move out of the way Writer’s block

So, I have been having some nasty writer’s block as of late.  It happens.  Sometimes the muse just isn’t in me or sits there, taunting me.

However, I think I may have found an answer to my block.

It’s called “642 Things to Write About” by the San Francisco Writers’ Grotto.

My mom got it from a friend of hers but she’s not really the writing type.  So… she regifted it to me while she was wrapping presents.  And now…

I have lots of things to write about.  I’m going to try and write them in the book first and then write different versions here on wordpress.  Let’s see how this goes….

🙂

And yes, I am super excited about this.  Super fucking madly happy excited.
