WIP Day - Hello Muse!

Today was a busy mama day.

In the morning I got my two kiddos all put together, picked up my friend's daughter, and brought the kids to preschool.  Then I headed back home with my youngest.  While he was happily watching Cars (again... he loves that movie!) I managed to get some photo editing done and post a preview for a certain little lady's first birthday (Happy birthday Nora!)

Once that was done, I bundled my youngest kiddo and the cat up and booked it back to the preschool.  This week is Pet Week, and today we got to show off our cute little kitty.  The kids loved her!

*takes deep breath*

Bundle three kids and kitty up.  Head home.  Decide to let friend's daughter come over and play.  Walk to park.  Play play play.

Finally, it is time to bring the little girl home.  So off to my friend's we go.  Where the kids play and I end up chatting with my friend for... erm... a long time.  Hey, the kids were happy.  (And, to find out later, were throwing a tea party with milk in the other bedroom.  Milk, everywhere.  Oops.)

Well, while chit chatting with my friend, something amazing happened.
A muse struck.

I won't get into details of what we were talking about.  But let me tell you: I am a million times more excited than ever to get to work on Lady Justice!

From the sounds of it, my face lit up.  It was epic.
Remember Christmas morning when you were a kid?  When you would sneak down into the living room to see the tree full of the presents waiting to be torn open?  How you would shake inside and out, barely able to contain yourself and about to burst?  Yup.  That was me.  Today.

November can't get here fast enough.  I am itching to get going on LJ!  I still have some rough plotting to do. Not much, being as I am a pantser by all descriptions.  But just enough to keep this Christmas morning excitement going.

I had to pop by and tell you that.
You never know when the muse will strike.
And when it does: It is a beautiful thing.

Thank you Muse!

How about you?  Having any muse luck?  Do share!

Happy Writing!

Awesome, Jenni! Glad to hear that the muse has you by the scruff of the neck, so to speak :)

The most recent time I was struck full force was in my dreams when I thought up a new story :) But i haven't written any of it or thought about it for a while now. But when I think about it I get excited all over again.

p.s. I know you took word verification off before, but did you put it back on again? it's back :( If you were getting heaps of spam I understand, and won't ask you again ;)

Hey Trish!
Don't you just love muses?

Yes, I put the Captcha back up. I was getting heaps of spam daily and it was getting to be too much. I didn't want to put it back up, but it is amazing how much spam is out there. Hope you still comment! I love hearing from you!

Muses are a truly wonderful things. So pleased yours made you feel like a kid on Christmas day.

Are you doing NaNoWriMo? I am. I can't wait.

Jenni Merritt said...

Ellie - I am! I can't wait either! NaNoWriMo has become one of the major highlights of my year. :)
