Why can’t I just write?

Flustered.  . . The more I want to write, the more tired I seem to get.

 I’m not sure if it is because this piece is therapy

 or if it is the cold weather making me want to hibernate.  . . 

Or my anemia. . . 

Why can’t I just write?

All situations can be written. . .

I was stood up Saturday instead of just waiting for two hours, I outlined part 2 for my book. (Yes, making the best of my anxiety, time, and my Nanowrimo prep.)

So I waited hours for the bozo to not show, and I was frazzled. What made it worst was when I gave him a chance after he begged for it, and I told him it would NOT work with the distance. Then after two hours of waiting, saying he was going to be there, he texts me saying: it‘s not working for me

No crap!

So what do my muses do? They nag me to write about it, and put it my novel I am working on.  3350 words later I have a scene to add into my story.  I know it’s before nanowrimo but I wanted to write while all feelings were fresh in my head. The migraine was worth the Saturday night of writing. 

Thank you . . . Muses (in no particular order )

  • Rebekah
  • Kelly
  • Emma
  • Chlorine
  • Starre

Word sprint, the exercise I like. 

Sports I like basketball, baseball, volleyball, football  (American) etc

Sports I like to play volleyball. 

I love to exercise my brain. When writing a novel, I do it alot. I do word sprints. 

 (Word sprint is writing as many words as you can in a time limit, 10 minutes, 20 minutes even up to an hour.) In groups, at the end they write down the amount of words, and cheer each other on. There are NaNoWriMo groups, twitter sprint groups, and Facebook groups.

I have a word sprint ritual.

When I do sprints on my own. (I get a bag of day old Halloween candy.) 

:00 to :25 word sprint

:25 to :30 break: eat candy,  write notes, bathroom if need

:30 to :55 word sprint

:55 to :00 break: eat candy,  write notes, bathroom if need

I usually do this for 2 to 4 hours or when I reach my daily goals. It depends on scenes, what errands I have to do for that day. I love written exercising. I trying to out do my  best rewards. 

20 minute sprint: 673

25 minute sprint: 698

30 minute sprint: 821

60 minute sprint: 1129

Shortest time to reach 1000 words was 45 minutes, when we did a reverse sprint. You give a word limit and you write until you reach the limit. (Nanowrimo daily goal 1667 per day.)

Written kitten.com is fun every hundred words a picture of a cat comes up. They have a puppy one as well. 

I don’t like it but there is writeordie.com(but if you can’t keep up it will start to erase work.)

 

What my Muses look like

What my Muses looks like. . . .

 

Rebekah has sandy blond hair, piercing blue eyes.  She has a flat stomach but curvy breasts and hips. With the right dress you can see the hour glass shape. Her back and legs are solid muscle, toned but not bulging. She loves to wear leggings, sport bras when working out, but jeans and sweaters at business meetings.

Just under Rebekah’s office we have a gym with exercise bikes, weights, treadmills, yoga area, and hot tub. It helps my muses stay in shape and focus.

 

Jack has sparkling blue eyes, spiking light brown hair, and very nice, inviting smile. He sometime will have a rugged look; with a 5 o’clock shadow. He barely works, but has a fast metabolism which helps him easily keep a 6 pack.  He usually wears tank tops and shorts, but the other muses like him when he is just in a towel.

 

Chlorine has natural blue-green eyes, but usually wears her violet contacts with her different hair styles or wigs. She looks amazing all natural, on her face, but rarely wears it that way. She has been known to spend more time on herself than her writing ideas. She rather shop until she notice that too many other muses are making weak situations and characters. Then she adds her two cents.

 

Emma has brown eyes and jet black hair. She loves the smoky look for her eyes or extreme make up.  She loves her high fashion, and she likes when her characters are rich enough to look good or she even make them steal to look good. She loves to be serve and gossip, so she is always in drama.

 

Mary has dyed her hair black-blue which looks well with her pale skin and green eyes. She wear gothic make up, not white, but highlighting her eyes in black, and a purple lipstick. She think being gothic that it’s like facing her fears.  She is short just barely 5ft mostly 4’11” so her leather trench coat is even longer on her.

 

Luna is also short at 5’2” but she is cute with chin length red hair and green eyes. She wear thick black sparkling glasses. She has freckles and looks as if she is in her teens. She is the youngest muse, but still over age 21. She is slightly chubby but loves to wear jeans, and her tee shirts with crazy sayings. Like “Don’t go to be angry, stay up and plot revenge.”

 

Sandy has sandy hair and teal eyes. She only has a natural look whether she has make up or not. She loves to wear summer dresses.  She hates to work out, but she knows it the only way she looks so good in the summer dresses. She is my romantic girl.

 

Kelly is then with crystal blue eyes and beach blonde hair. She has bleached teeth so her teeth look whiter with her red lipsticks. She rarely eats, because she secretly believes she is fat.  Rebekah sneaks vitamins in her coffee to keep her going. She wears low cut jeans or skirts and shirts that always show her belly button ring.  She does not wear underwear.

 

(Zoe had dark blue eyes and black hair. She had a swimmer’s body. She would swimming naked and did nudge yoga. She didn’t wear clothes unless she had too and when she did she loved robes . . . in which she would only tie loosely.)

Starre has mood changing eyes . . . they are hazel with specks of blue. It depends on what she wore to be what color they would be. She knew if she wore white eye shadow she would make her eye shine blue.  She loves to wear lingerie without undies. She loves being a tease as much as she loved writing about sex.

 

It’s like the movie “ Inside Out” I made characters for each of my personalities/ muses.

More about my muses

I thought I had an intro on my muses. . . I guess I either dreamed typing it or it got lost in my other blog.  However mention them several times in my other blog https://rebekahwolveire.wordpress.com/2015/09/26/my-muses-are-still-on-vacation-eh/

https://rebekahwolveire.wordpress.com/2014/11/19/nanowrimo/

Yes, I found my intro. https://rebekahquinne.wordpress.com/2016/10/19/introduction-my-muses/

Many of my muses are hard at work with each project. . . It’s like they have a business meeting in my head.
The main muse is in-charge of each project. . . they also supply the coffees and doughnuts for the extra muses who come in to give their 2 cents.

Rebekah is my essence so to speak.  She is the leader of all this and is not usually mentioned, because she usually in her office, unless in meeting.  She the CEO with the full glass windowed office. Her desk is three times the size of everyone’s desk. Her coffee even taste better, whatever flavor she wishes to have to have that day. Today, it is  chocolate caramel.

Jack is my main guy for research and history. . . he is always busy and is usually at every meeting.  He’s trying to relate facts, or at flashbacks of character stories in my novels.  He usually he and Rebekah are my main muses in control, especially with my blog.  However Jack’s nose is currently in “Grey” By E. L. James.  Come on, Jack, we have so much more to write and read.  Besides you are hogging the tub while reading the book.

Kelly is Rebekah’s assistant when Rebekah needs it.  When not reviewing Rebekah’s work and getting her coffee, Kelly working on blogs, organizing things, outlines and character profiles for each major story. Her secret passion is is to marry rich and have someone else do this for her.  She works will when writing romance, fantasy, and screaming  horror. (Luna and Mary will have Kelly read their work to see if it scares her. If she screams, then they pull her in and work on it.)

Luna and Mary are the youngest of the group and  they love good twists, suspenseful turns, and to jump. The more they are scared, the better.  They love when Jack talks about the Urban Legends he reads.  Luna wants to sci-fi, but Rebekah just doesnt know if she wants to get into that genre just yet. She loves being in paranormal, occult, and horror.

Sandy, Emma, and Chlorine are all dramatic in there own way whether it is gossip, lies, rumors, or pranks. Sometimes if they were out of each other’s business, they would make the ultimate chaotic characters.

Zoe  retired and gave her creative genes to her younger sister (by another mother) Starre. Starre is a very busy and naughty girl  trying to keep up with all of the adult fads and her many suitors she uses to try them.

They all got called to a main office as I have my computer working.

Rebekah is trying to get them back to work. (Look at my previous entries. . . I have lists of things to do. https://rebekahquinne.wordpress.com/2017/10/08/1714/

However it is 3:30 in the morning and all work will continue when I wake up in the afternoon.
