Whenever I get stuck, I reach for one of the Big Three: Dove, Lindt, or, in a real crisis, Godiva chocolate. Before long, words are spilling out of my head onto the page. My muse loves chocolate. Pasta is good, too. And wine. My muse may be a lush, actually.
Today I’m polishing off the leftover Halloween candy because it’s Wednesday. I’m not blocked at all, but this is a preventative measure. Typically, my work week starts on Monday morning. I’m SO a creature of habit, and sometimes if I have an appointment or whatever on Monday, my week gets off track.
Both Monday and Tuesday this week were filled with necessary chores and errands. Well, okay, and brunch with friends. Anyway, to make sure my muse didn’t balk today, I started eating chocolate right after breakfast. Just to be safe I had pasta for lunch, and I’m thinking a glass of wine might not be a bad idea.
Of course, if I do that, I may not make it to 5:40 Jazzercise…
I have to keep my priorities straight. The Muse comes first.
