I’ve made it a goal this year to write something everyday, or to at least LOOK at what I’m working on to refresh my mind on my current progress. I chose this as my main goal because I get lazy. So far I’ve found it hard getting into the habit.
I told my fabulous friend Wendy about my goal, and she told me something that I’ve really taken to heart. She said “Your muse needs to know when to show up!” I just love that. When I’m tired and about to collapse into bed after a 16 hour day of kids, I think “My muse! She’s expecting me.” I can’t just stand her up; that would be impolite. Even though she’s fickle and unpredictable, I have to give her the opportunity to speak to me.
So tonight I’ve got a date with my muse. I just hope she shows up.
