I have my list of projects, which I can juggle expertly. I don’t get distracted easily.
I almost always have a game plan.
With my writing, I try to have a game plan but creativity just doesn’t behave like that. For me anyway.
I keep trying, or wanting to try, to write a novel (see my post from November). But the stories keep coming.
And I love them.
One of the most recent stories I’ve written, American Gothic Getaway, was inspired by a story I heard on the radio while driving to work one morning.
I wasn’t planning on writing a new story. I was supposed to be working on the novel and I was already distracted by another story in progress.
But the Muse wants what the Muse wants, and she gave me this story.
I couldn’t be happier to have it included in the most recent issue of Blue Lotus Review.
