One of the things I hate the most is not being able to write when I want.
I get most of my inspiration from music. I guess it’s my muse. And it’s rare for me to go a day without listening to music. (I suppose people at work people probably get concerned when I’m not wearing my headphones.) So when I’m writing, editing or proofing something for the magazine and suddenly I hear a song that makes me want to write my stories, I start to feel like a gremlin is trying to tear out my insides. Like that scene in Total Recall where Kuato busts through George’s stomach. Yeah. Like that.
Maybe that’s what is really going on when my stomach’s growling. It’s Kuato telling me to write. Because if I don’t, he’s going to bust out and demand I free Mars. I should probably force M to watch Total Recall so they can be prepared for the day I must save the world from bad space dudes bent on taking over my mind…’cause they want my stories. Dangerous.
I require theme music.
Yeah, I seriously daydream about these things.
