The Moment of Inspiration

Some people write in the morning.  Others write in the afternoon or over breaks.

Me, I’m a late night writer.  My Beast, whom I affectionately refer to as my Writing Moose, tends to come out late at night.  This ain’t bad when the Moose shows up sometime around 7:30 or 8:30 or even 9:00. These are what I call good nights. This is what I’m trying to tame the Moose so that it does this regularly.

But there is the occasional day when the Moose wanders in and smacks me upside the head and says “Here’s an idea!”.  This happens right around 11pm or later.  So I have to turn on a light and jot down those notes or they are lost forever.  This annoys Steph to no end.

So Steph, this one is for you 🙂

    oh wait, I do that too. Drat!

    What’s worse is when the muse decides to shackle you with a whole chapter at 11:35pm. So you turn on the light, scribble scribble. Turn off light. Ugh. Turn on light, scribble scribble. Turn off light. ARGH! Turn on light, scribble scribble. Turn off light. Okay, damnit. Get up, go into the living and pour your brain into the laptop and then come back to a chilled bed at around 1am making sure your alarm clock is set for 5:30am to get to work.
