Being Bullied By My Imagination

I am such a failboat.  I meant to go through five chapters (five hefty chapters) of psychology today, but instead, I had this sudden idea for a Percy Jackson fanfiction.  And it refused to leave me alone.

So I wrote it, like the spineless person I am.  Jeez, I can't even stand up the demands of imaginary people in my head.  Weak!

I have to admit, this was probably one of the most successful experiences I've ever had with writing.  3,800 words poured out onto paper with little to no effort at all.  Didn't even feel like writing.  Felt like flying.  The character had a voice, and he just took over.  It is called, "Hero, Standing Alone," and will be debuting on tomorrow.  Sunday's not a good day to post.  It simply isn't.

Tonight, I also mean to be rewriting (completely) the first chapter of ATRS, because I am tired of Meg screaming at me every second of my life.  She's so freaking demanding.  I don't know why I put up with her.

But, of course, now I have a ton of US history and psychology waiting.  Guess who's pulling another late night?  Ugh.


  1. Yay for happy writing!

    Don't worry, you're not alone. My characters boss me around on a regular basis. :p

  2. Don't feel so bad. When the muse hits, you have to listen. I've been in the same boat many times, and when the waves hit you later, it's no fun. Just enjoy the ride while you can.

  3. Curse you fanfiction. I've been crushed many a night in your steely clutches! Lol, it happens to the best of us. Here's to getting your home work done (eventually)!

  4. I only wish my muse would strike at more opportune moments in life. Like the times when I'm bored and eating Cheetos while watching Lifetime. Hey, Muse, you are totally welcome to bother me then.

    Alas, no such luck.
