Her world becomes calm and predictable —until one Halloween night … one costume party … and one masquerading man change everything.

Following your muse…
By Jacqueline Paige
What drives a writer to sit down and write? The love of the written word? Creating worlds and characters? For the readers entertainment?
It’s most likely all of those, but for me it’s the never ending nagging of my muse. She will literally deprive me of sleep when a plot needs to be jotted down and will not let me rest if there’s a particular scene she has playing over and over in my head.
I know it’s easy to blame the exhaustion on a fictitious muse … I believe every writer out there has one and will agree that even though they are beyond exhaustion with no time to spare the drive is coming from somewhere inside they can’t identify. That would be their muse.
I am constantly being asked how I find the time to write as much as I do in addition to being a mother to five and having a full-time 60+ hours a week job. My answer … I don’t know! And I don’t. I have no idea how I’m able to sit up long past when most of my body has already gone to sleep and write entire chapters. Does it ever catch up to me? Yes. In those few times my muse is otherwise entertained or resting I’m able to take a nap from time to time. Of course she is recharged much faster than I am and will wake me when a new idea has formed.
Presently I have a list of plot ideas and characters that are waiting to be written. If I were to sit down and do nothing but write ten hours a day it would keep me with more than enough to do for the next year – at least.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining – I love my muse. I even gave her my middle name and that’s what we see on the covers of my books. We have a wonderful relationship, I just need an assistant and another set of hands to type with to keep up with her. I do wish she would learn how to proof read and edit, that would save me hours of stress as I try to get one story off to the publisher as she’s feeding the next one into my brain.
I may have titled this piece wrong, I don’t follow my muse I hang on tight and hope she stops occasionally so I can eat and sleep.
As soon as I’m done typing this, I have to work on “our” to-do list. Which is: proof and submission of book four in the Magic Seasons series, finish the re-writes for the first book in the Animal Trilogy that the publisher requested, complete the first draft of book 3 in the Hidden Senses Trilogy as the dead-line approaches quickly, proof and submit the three other completed books that are sitting waiting for their debut.
I definitely need a clone or assistant…
