Muse: What are you doing? Don’t go back to sleep. There’s work to do.
Muse: Okay, so you rejected my last idea, but I have a terrifical, splentastic, awesomelicious good one for you this time! Hey! Wake up.
Me: * heavy breathing *
Muse: So you know how you’ve been doing all that stuff on Minecraft lately—
Me: * head pops up * Minecraft?
Muse: Yep, thought that would get your attention. So…there’s this girl and this guy—
Me: * mutters * That plot’s been done to death. Leave me alone. I have to have my beauty sleep.
Muse: No, no. This is new. This is a different twist. This is—
Me: Muse! Shut up! I need sleep.
Muse: What? So you will have enough oomph to play more Minecraft?
Me: * grabs computer, which is conveniently by bed * Okay, what’s the idea? Give it to me so I can go back to sleep.
Muse: * blah, blah, blah * (Did you really think I was going to tell you my story idea? No!) * faint sounds of snoring *
Me: Muse? Muse? Oh well, I’m awake now. Might as well play Minecraft!
Note from tired author: Writers (or anyone else) never, ever begin a new world on Minecraft if you’ve got editing to do. Never, ever! Never! Today, (it’s 9:13 am CST) I will edit and write and edit and write… And that’s my story and I’m sticking to it!
Anybody else out there addicted to Minecraft? Please tell me I’m not alone…pretty please.
I love video games- but I have never played Minecraft. I do know a few people who are addicted to it though- if that makes you feel better. :)ReplyDelete
So glad you got a cool idea from your muse! Hopefully it was worth getting up in the middle of the night.
