An e-mail from a fellow author:
“Sorry it took so long to respond. My younger one had a birthday and it’s always a series of events, lol! One for the friends, one for the family and the real one, the actual day, is for us. So, since Friday I had no peace, lol
(Not that I managed to get away from the Muse.)
Between cleaning the house and all the preparations on Friday to be ready to receive the girls from her class, I managed to ‘get caught’ with my laptop in our bedroom. Ten minutes before the girls were supposed to arrive.
My husband came in to get dressed. Imagine his shock to discover me crouching over my laptop. Typing eagerly! He stared at me with disbelieve and all I managed to say was ‘it’s not what you think’! LOL. I really felt guilty. He expected me to put my writing aside at least for our daughter’s birthday. LOL! It was a ridiculous situation I probably would feel less guilty if he caught me there with another man :D”
And that folks is what happens when the Muse hits and you are a writer. A writer, writes. No matter what. No matter where, a writer writes.
