Muse again

Well, my muse has smacked me in the head but good.  And now it's turned out that it's a romance novel I'm starting.  Oy.  Why me?  I don't think it's even a very good romance novel.  But if I don't keep writing it there is no telling when my muse will come back.   I don't want to get blocked again.  This is the most I've written in MONTHS.   Ignoring your muse is dangerous.  they might decide to go be the muse of someone who will appreciate them.  So I continue to write the story.  Got this whole party scene written out.  Makes me think of  "Gone With the Wind."   And my characters keep taking unexpected turns.  I don't even know what I'm gonna type until I'm practically typing it.  I don't think I've ever written a story this way.  This is the way I wrote for Comp 1 computer essay tests.  It's weird.   Now i'm wondering if I have any civil war books to read so I can keep my mind in this frame of thought.

I have to admit, this story has been brewing for a long time, but it's not coming out at all like I had originally thought.  Back then, Ruth's fiance or whatever was fighting for the Confederacy and not the Yankees.   It's like I'm channeling something.  I wonder if other people feel this way when they write.  I hope my muse sticks around long enough to let me finish this.  I want to know what's going to happen.

I gotta go.

I love you, my Jayson!!!
