Inspiration and Perspiration

Sometimes the muse sits on your shoulder and words come tumbling onto the page in a glorious rush of inspiration.

Sometimes you sit on your chair until your butt goes numb, letting words dribble out as if you've opened a vein.

The thing is, when readers see your work, they usually can't tell the difference.

That's technique.

May you have all you need today.

...and then there's when you have 2 muses (or is it musi) who want to periodically argue over one specific plotpoint that will inevitably take the storyline in completely different directions. Can never get anything done at that point, so just I walk away until they duke it out. *sigh* Some people say writers have it easy, but I've learned otherwise. I dare them to try arguing with a muse just once and then see how they feel about it in the end. Ha!
