For some a muse is a tangible person. Usually being around their muse helps inspire the artist/writer/whatever to create. For others, like myself, our muse is more the part of ourselves that gets inspired. It is that little voice in our heads that tells us it is time to create.
I have learned many things about my muse over the years, and many more things since I started to write again a few months ago. The first one should know about her, is she is stubborn. When she wants to work on a particle project she is only going to inspire me for that project. If I try to work on things she is not currently interested in she fights me tooth and nail. Her weapons of choice are usually distraction and very bad writing on my part. I have deleted more than a few chapters because when I reread them they were just…awful.
The second thing you should know about my muse is she is sort of a flake. She skips here and there without a care. I have found there is no real rhyme or reason to what she becomes interested in. I have found myself working on one project for a few minutes only to find that now she wants to work on a different one. Sometimes the new project is just that, new. She whispers like a temping devil in my ear: “why don’t we write a story about this and that?” Even though I have four other projects already going. I have finally had to put my foot down on that one, as I do currently have six projects being written. Two of which get worked on very slowly and you may not see for a few months.
The third and final thing you need to know about my muse is that she is kind of a pervert. Or at least that is what she has been lately. For some reason that I do not know, she has much preferred to work on my erotica stories rather than my more serious ones. Which is why Face of War and Blind Nymph (Just realized I have not posted the latter on this site at all, will work on fixing that today) have been updated so sparsely as of late.
So this is a little about my muse, I hope it helps people understand why I post what I post when I post it. I would be interested in hearing about other people’s muses as well! Do you have the same difficulties, or completely different ones?
This is just a quick post to let everyone know I put the final chapters of Quidditch Lesson up and I also posted chapter 2 of The Nine Tribes: Unrest. My plan for the rest of the day is to try and finish chapter 2 of Face of War, but I am not making any promises.
So I haven’t figured out how to make a chapter NOT take over the whole front page if I post it as a post. So new plan, I will be be just posting them as pages and write a post that tells you when I new chapter is up.
That being said I will be updating both The Smell of Submission and Quidditch Lesson in a few moments! Expect another couple of updates to Quidditch Lesson in the near future as I am working on writing the last chapter now, and the second to last chapter is being on hold till my beta has time to read it.
In other news I have decided to pause the Quidditch Lesson series once the first book is done. I have so many projects right now that something had to give, and between books seems like the best place to pause something.
I feel so bad that Blind Nymph and Face of War have both been on pause for over a month simply because my muse is a pervert… For those of you who are fans, do not worry they are still being worked on, just slowly.
Okay so I thought I would give everyone a little update on how this blog is coming and how I plan for it to work in the future. First of all I should let you guys know that pulling everything together is going to take some time. I have to reformat a lot of my stories so getting older content up is going to be a long running process.
Anything I have written will not be posted in the main feed, for lack of a better word. Instead you will be able to find older content under Fan Fiction. I plan, as I did today for Quidditch Lesson, to post any new chapters in the feed, but to also put them in the appropriate page under Fan Fiction. This way you will be able to read new things off of the feed and still be able to easily find my older stores.
As for Quidditch Lessons itself, I am working on getting the first 55 chapters up, but again… Dude 55 chapters. Also I plan to combine several chapters into one page. I think that will make it a bit easier to read, and I won’t have a 1000 pages once all is said and done.
On to what I have gotten done! All of the published chapters of Smell of Submission are up! Chapter 12 is about half way done and I think I will be posting it sometime tomorrow.
Finally… On to a nervous announcement. I have started to write an original story. Because you know, my muse doesn’t think I am busy enough. It doesn’t really have a title yet, but I can tell you a little bit about it. It takes place in a modern fantasy world. It is a story where the supernatural beings are hidden from human eyes, but they do live very modern lives. This is an erotica story with heavy BDSM themes, and it is a darker setting. I am not sure when I will have the first chapter up, I am much more nervous about posting it than I have been about posting my other work.
