Balancing the muse
I have two very strong-willed muses inside my head. While some may think that's a blessing, and yes I agree, but other times it can be damn confusing too. See, I write in two totally different genres: Erotic and YA. You can't find farther ends of the spectrum so yeah... it can be difficult when both my muses are speaking up at once!
I don't want to silence the chatty women of course because hey, I need them, but it's pretty hard to balance the two sometimes. It's kind of like the angel on one shoulder and the devil on the other. They both REALLY want their stories told today and one doesn't mind jumping in when I'm working on the other. But with them, they come together and it's not good ;).
I guess it wouldn't have if I became a little more organized. Gave each girl her allotted time and didn't cave when she begs too hard, but how do I know if I ignore her, she won't go away? LOL. So, lately my days have been spent jumping back and forth between parent issues and work place flings. But you know what, I wouldn't change it! I'm doing what I love in all forms and consider myself damn lucky!
