Writing for the first time in, I believe, ever. My darlin’ told me she’d build breakfast if, in return, I sat down with my cup of coffee and tapped out words. How could I refuse an offer like that? Besides, I was fresh from the RCRW meeting, and was suitably inspired with “huh, people write stories. I remember liking that.”
I immediately began to slump at the notion of slogging away at Self Sacrifice some more. Dutydutyduty called, and I wanted to let it go to voicemail. Writing wasn’t a joy, wasn’t fun, wasn’t anything but heavy and gray and unlusterful. Clearly it was time to contact the Muse and order up a fresh batch of joie de’ecrit.
So this morning I’m working up Hardboiled Christmas Candy (working title), a cross between The Maltese Falcon and Rudolph The Rednosed-Reindeer. How can I not have fun with that?
scurries off for more fun with that
