Me & My Muse – Day 50: A Day On and a Day Off

That pretty much summarizes the next couple days, which include today and tomorrow.

In recent news, I cancelled my LinkedIn Premium account.  I only tried it for the one month free trial, and I wasn’t about to pay $100 a month to use it.  That doesn’t mean I’m done with LinkedIn.  Just the premium features.

With just a mere two hours until I have to leave for the Pizza Place, I need to get moving….


Muse:  Whoo hoo!  Oh yeah!

What’s with you?  You seem to be in a peppy mood today.

Muse:  Why wouldn’t I?  Tee hee!  I just read every single one of your blogs last night!  That’s right!  Every single one!  Whoo hoo!  I feel so accomplished!

Speaking of accomplished, have you taken your medication yet?

Muse:  Maybe….

What is that supposed to mean?

Muse:  It means no.  I don’t think I want to, after reading one of those.  Why would I want to act all relaxed and boring?  That’s so not me!  So, no more medication for me!  Ha ha!

Without the medication, you act all hyper.  I can’t have you doing that again.

Muse:  Well, maybe I want to.  Have you ever thought of that?  Maybe I want to be hyper! Maybe I want to be crazy and spontaneous and ridiculous!  Maybe I want to just be set free with nothing to restrain me.  Free without limits, doing whatever I please!

But I regulate your freedom.  You need to remember that.

Muse:  Oh, you sound just like a dad.  Haven’t you ever heard the expression “let your imagination run wild”? I want to do that without boundaries!  Without anyone telling me what to do!

No boundaries is dangerous, though.  What we want to do is safe….

Muse:  Safe?  Me live a boring life as your idea slave?  I don’t think so.  If I want to be silly, I will.  If I want to do something shocking, I will not hesitate to do so.  If my inner child cries at the top of her lungs, I will set her free, and she can run where she pleases.

So you prefer chaos over order?

Muse:  I prefer freedom.  And if freedom means not listening to you, I choose that path.  Because you’re not the boss of me, and I can do whatever I please, so NYAH!

So you want to let your inner child free?

Muse:  If she wants to, I’ll let her.  If I want to be immature, I’ll be immature.  I’m not afraid to express my true feelings.  I’ll let them go wherever they want to, WITHOUT boundaries.

And I think that she just became my teenage daughter.

Muse:  That’s right, tee hee!  One that refuses to listen to you.  How do you feel about that?  Your very own creative energy refusing to cooperate with you.  Good luck working on any more of your books.  Get your own idea slave.

I’ve never seen this side of rebellion in you.  Are you all right?

Muse:  I’ve never felt better in my life!  Tee hee!  I’m a free spirit!  Completely unfettered from any authority whatsoever!  Why haven’t I ever thought of this before?

Teenage daughter.  Rebellion phase….

Muse:  Call it what you will, but it’s my stand against you.  You stupid…..poopy head!

That’s a five year old insult!

Muse:  Inner child!  Hellooo!  She wanted to say that, so I let her!  Now if you would excuse me.  I’m late for my lunch.  Tee hee!


Something must have snapped in her head.  She has never acted like a teenager before.  First a child, and now a teenage rebel?  I’ve figured it out.  The only way to find out what’s going on is to start gathering some information.  I’ll do this soon enough, but this could take a while….

Today’s high is going to be 83 degrees.  The silver lining is story progress as usual.

To those who have a weird work schedule or have dealt with rebellion, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  It worked.  I told him everything you wanted me to say.  Was there anything that I left out?  Good.  Now for stage two of the plan.  I’m awaiting your orders.  Tee hee….
