So many times I tried to make you an elf in my shoe shop, a maid in my creative kitchen, a servant at my beck and call.
Yet you still lord over me. You still come and go as you wish.
Today, I want to thank you for the three thousand words of the second installment of The True Story of the Vortex. I don't know, maybe you were powered by gallons of coffee and two Red Bulls I had in the evening, but I was up all night writing, and it was so good. So thank you, and please stay.
It is 10:00 AM now, I am loopy with sleep deprivation and probably do not make much sense... I just want to share this with my fellow writers on Twitter and Facebook, and with my other readers as well, and say:
Treat your inspiration as you would treat a dear friend.
Every day, as you sit down to write, summon your inspiration with kind words.
If you believe in a higher power, pray for inspiration.
Visualize inspiration. Whether it is a beautiful Muse or a mystical winged unicorn, give it embodiment in your imagination.
