I’d like to take this time to thank Misty for doing a guest post on my blog today. 😀 She’s been so busy with getting a new book cover out as well as this Dimension Thieves Blog Tour going. I’m just happy that she was able to take the time out of her schedule to come here to my blog. So without further ado. (oh and this is my first guest blog post.)

THAT LITTLE SNOT OF A MUSE & HOW SHE MESSES WITH MY WRITING SCHEDULE

 

Hello there!  Thanks for having me over to your blog to talk about my little snot of a muse.  Well, in all fairness,  I suppose that’s not a fair title any longer.  She was a horrible snot who has since been wrestled into my writing schedule and made to follow the rules.  And today, I’m going to tell you all about her!

 

The trouble with muses—any writer will tell ya—is that they can be lazy.  Muses often have terrible work ethics, writing a brilliant line or five thousand here and there, but they rarely want to finish an entire book.  They prefer to write scenes and then leave them scattered all over the manuscript, so you have to gather them all up and figure out how to tie them all together.  Muses are lovely, creative little harpies that stir up a lot of trouble in a writer’s life when not managed properly.

 

Once I quit my out-of-house job to stay home and write, I got a quick and nasty dose of just how slothful my muse could be.  Mine wanted to hang out on the couch and binge Netflix all day.  Or she wanted to paint her nails different colors all afternoon, or post homemade LOL CATZ pics on Facebook all day.  She even wanted to do housework and be called Muserella when I asked her to sit down and work on my stories.  Ugh.  I caught her one too many times out on the patio eating cookies with the excuse that she ‘didn’t want to get crumbs in the laptop”.  Whatever.  I bought her a keyboard skin.

 

Me and my muse’s working relationship had to change drastically, so I came up with a schedule.  Mornings now, I usually get up, do all the boring start-the-day stuff, and then take my muse for a four mile walk.  It mellows her out.  We listen to the current manuscript playlist to get us in the mood or call writer friends that won’t hang up on me at insane hours.

 

Once home, my muse and I get down to business.  On solid writing days, I can usually count on getting 2500 word count, sometimes more.  Most days, however, are a mix of social media, promotional work, and writing.  Sometimes I’m making covers, emailing, running errands to my P.O. Box or shipping out orders.  Those days, I strive to have a 2K word count at the end, but sometimes it is less.  I’m not a stickler, as long as the “or less” days don’t drag out too much.

 

I work from around 9 or 10 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. with lunch thrown in (usually eaten over my laptop).  In the evening, it’s back to checking social media, writing what needs to be written, etc.  I work until about 9 or 10 p.m., unless something’s really pressing or I’m having a blast—then it’s a pot or two of coffee and on until dawn.

 

As far as the muse goes, her attendance is mandatory.  I feed her with playlists, breaks to work on covers or memes, phone calls to author friends…but she’s got to be present at the push of a keyboard letter.  That’s the way it is when you are writing for a living…time is money.

 

So, there it is.  I wrestle my muse into running shoes each morning and off we go.  But don’t worry any…she loves the job as much as I do. 🙂

 

If you’d like to ask more about Muserella or anything really…feel free to hit me up on my socials anytime:

The Dimension Thieves is a clean series with some mild violence and language, still suitable for some young adult readers.
In this final three gripping episodes in the series, Sterling must face her most worthy, as well as her most dangerous adversary. The crew of the Karolina Nine returns to a familiar dimension where they learn that failures, mistakes, and unexpected events will decide the fate of their mission.

The Dimension Series are serial novellas with killer cliffhangers. This is a clean adult series with mild violence, so it may be suitable for some Young Adult readers.

Calerbius has stolen a key component to the Antidote Mechanism and deserted the mission, but Katuna reveals that he has ominous plans for a return to the Karolina Nine. Having lost a key crew member in a skirmish, Force now questions his ability to see the mission through, as well as questioning his own authenticity. The fate of the whole mission hangs in the balance as they reenter the abyss to barter once again with the gypsies.

In this second installment of The Dimension Thieves, the crew of the Karolina Nine continue on their desperate mission to acquire the materials needed to build an Antidote Mechanism, the machine that can reverse the droning on their home planet of Antythera. But on this next leg of the journey, Force and his untrustworthy crew enter a harrowing dimension filled with dragons and meet some familiar faces that turn their lives inside out. Every crew member has a secret they don’t want told, but with such a sketchy group aboard, secrets are increasingly hard to keep. Twists and turns, shocking discoveries, and dirty little secrets abound in this action-packed trilogy of episodes.

Antythera is the new Earth. Why? Because that’s what President Baro, ruler of the planet, wants to call it. And if you don’t agree, the President will have you Droned. The world has become a much smaller place since the lower and middle classes have been converted to mindless servants. Free will, granted only to the elite, is in jeopardy of complete extinction. But Force Steele, son to one of the President’s highest ranking advisors, can’t live under the thumb of his controlling father, or the President, any longer. Force has dedicated himself to eradicating Droning, but when the President orders the Antidote Gear destroyed—the part of the machine that could free the drones by reversing the program that controls them—all is lost. Lacking necessary materials, there is literally no way in Force’s world to replace the one-of-a-kind gear. Force’s only choice is to partner with shifty mechanic, Calerbius Brown, and embark on a risky mission that will take Force and his rag-tag crew across the lateral dimensions, where they must often steal materials—even from themselves—in order to fix their own dwindling world.
