Do you recall the ‘Writing Muse’ that I have mentioned before? The one that awakens me anytime between 3-5am in the mornings with writing and other creative ideas and inspirations? Well, she paid me a visit this morning right at 5am, with an idea for a Christmas themed short story featuring Little Red Bear. She openly challenged me to have it completed for the holidays and is really adamant about it. I have learned over time that one should never decline the challenge or assistance of a determined muse!
So, despite an already overloaded schedule, Little Red Bear and I began work this morning on a Christmas Story. But a lot needs to be accomplished in a short time to pull this one off. Muses never really give much weight to schedules, working on Celestial time as they do.
As I said, the muse is insistent this be done and the story seems to be coming to mind rather quickly, so Red and I will be very busy to get it all completed in time for the approaching holidays. Probably need to place some large chocolate and honey orders to get us thru this one!
I mentioned that her name should maybe be changed from “Creative Inspiration Muse” to “Last Minute Muse”, but she didn’t see the humor. I guess it may have been too early in the morning for that, even for a muse.
Thanks as always for visiting with us. Please wish us well with so much to do and pull together. We’re off now to get to work and will keep you posted on our progress over the next few weeks. — Jim (and Red!)
