Music as muse?

Standard

As crazy as my life has been the last couple of years, I am not sure how sane it was
to think I could do the Nanowrimo this year…but there you have it, I actually did begin
something. Now though, life is getting in the way more than usual and I am at a loss as to
where and how to restart a story I began two years ago. I am sure that back then I knew
exactly where I was headed, now I am not so sure.

Lots of people write good stories, compelling ones that keep us turning page after page.
I don’t really know what made me think I had a cute story to tell, I can’t seem to write
anything at all today.

It is Monday. I did have a busy weekend. I am not at a location where it is easy to
get inspired and I never really considered what a blessing my usual location has been
for gathering material together and putting words on paper. Where I am now is a busy
city where there is lots of traffic and noise of all kinds. Day and night seem to have
no real segregation, people are doing things at all hours.

What music inspires me to write? At the moment, I cannot even decide if reggae, salsa,
classical or jazz is my muse. I guess it’s another delay tactic of my not so sub-conscious!

The muse

It’s funny how every morning I have a muse and then it vanishes when
the day’s duties face me! I am a generally happy person but every once
in a while I wish a fairy would come to my home and garden and take care
of all the time consuming tasks that have to be done (weeding, dusting, etc.)
in order for everything to look spiffy!
Coffee
I walked my property today for the first time in many months. The coffee
plants are suffering because of a lack of rain but even more startling was
to see how everything is looking miserable because the “master’s” eyes have
not been following progress (or lack thereof) in the field. It is time to
suspend some activities and take up others. I feel energized right now and
hopefully that energy will translate into being able to communicate my needs
to the gardeners we employ and pay!
