Muse on Holidays

I came. I blogged. I conquered.

What am I talking about? Well, my debut post over there at Night Owl Romance, of course. I think I did pretty good, actually. I was witty enough without sounding silly, and I think I even managed to impart some information that may have been helpful to someone somewhere out there in writer land. What’s more I’ve been invited to post again! Wow! I had so much fun doing it I think I may do just that…now what do I talk about this time? Can I sound reasonably intelligent two times in a row? A huge ask I must say. LOL

For the full post over there for NOR, just in case you missed it, click here.

Now, what else have I been up to this week? Well, my muse of late seems to have taken a holiday. He doesn’t want to play no matter how much beer and pizza I try and bribe him with. When he doesn’t want to come out and work there’s absolutely nothing I can do about it. So I spent the Easter weekend in the garden. Lord knows that needed a lot more attention than my writing does right now. I had so many weeds and rubbish everywhere I had to rescue the dog every time she went to the toilet on the so-called lawn (she’s a Papillion and therefore an inside dog so I have to take her outside to do her business. She spends her days warming the couch in front of the T.V.—yes, she watches T.V.).

Needless to say, after four days of toiling away, my garden is once more a place I can enjoy. Last night I sat out there and enjoyed a BBQ with my family, proud as punch with the work I had done. Still, all that effort didn’t help my muse come out from hiding though…Perhaps he wants me to paint the house next weekend! Damn typical. *giggle*

I even teased my muse by printing out the last few chapters of my latest work in progress...Nothing. The bastard! Wait, I know what might entice him. I think I may just get that last Easter Bunny chocolate I stashed at the back of the cupboard. Yes…that’s what I’ll do.

He can’t resist chocolate.

Oh that elusive, sometimes evil, muse. I've had more than enough fights with him/her myself. I've been stranded for months at a time. That's not very fun. I hope your muse comes back quickly. For some reason, they really enjoy the game "hide and seek".

Mark Alders said...

I sure hope he comes back soon, too, Sierra!

More chocolate, I say *giggle*

Mark, be patient. Muses do go on vacation once in a while. While waiting don't overindulge on chocolates, though. :D Try cookies sometimes. LOL



Mark Alders said...

Ooh, good idea, Tierney! I think eating cookies is a perfect idea :-) Know any good recipes? Perhaps something with chocolate in it *giggle*

*return hugs*
