⭐️ Day 12 Prompt: Scheduled Writing Time or When the Muse Strikes? ⭐️

Like @stacyjanewriter, it’s both for me!

Inspiration strikes even at the most inconvenient of times but sometimes I need to remind the #writingmuse that I’m in charge of making dreams happen, haha. (I’ll probably regret saying that tonight…)

Most of my ideas have come from when I’m in the shower, while I’m driving, and even in the middle of a dead sleep. So of course I agree with Stacy that inspiration strikes at the most inconvenient of times.

I remember taking a day trip to #tlaquepaque in #Sedona when inspiration struck me. The only problem was I was still an hour away from reaching my final destination. Pulling over to the side of the road was out of the question. And, well, I forgot the mini notepad I usually keep in my back pocket.

Other times, I like having scheduled #writingsessions. But those are few and far in between lately. For example, Monday (last week), I had scheduled some writing time for a #middlegradefiction piece. Yeah, that didn’t happen. Instead, I woke up at 2:00 am in my recliner with both a working title and a rough draft for an active #picturebook project.

So…it’s hit or miss?

I recently sold my business so now I’m only working for one company instead of three. More time for writing and spending time with my daughter.

How about you? Do you enjoy scheduled #writingtime or when the #muse strikes?
