If you are a dreamer, come in

If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,

a hope-er a pray-er, a magic bean buyer...

If you are a pretender, come sit by my fire

For we have some flax-golden tales to spin.

Come in! Come in!

The Muse and I...

Ode to my Muse.
He is always bugging me, he is always stuffing my head with new idea's despite the fact that I'm still working on the last one he gave me. He is constantly complaining that I'm too slow in jolting down his idea's, he keeps threatening to be someone else's muse (I wish) if I don't hurry up.
But I wouldn't have it any other way...Okay major lie I would so have it many other ways.

Dear Muse,
I appreciate the ideas and all but you should just be happy that I write them down in my idea book, do I have to write and elaborate story about them right now?! I still have to finish about some idea's for Millvalley?!!

The person you annoy.

My Muse however does not answer any questions he just whispers sweet nothings in my ear and throws a tantrum when I ignore him. As much as I complain about his nagging I think we're a perfect couple. A creative team to be reckoned long as you don't mind that half of the team is imaginary.

As of late my Muse paid me a special visit, he came to me on the 14th and told me that he could see I was busy trying to edit Devil's Helmet and finish writing Millvally while trying to find a way to start two new stories but he really had to tell me about this idea he'd gotten for a movie.
So being the soft-hearted-can't-say-no-er that I am I listened to him and him being the charming-intelligent-idealistic-sweet-talking-Muse convinced me to write a fantastical screenplay.
So now that you understand the relationship between me and my Muse and my inability to say no to him I think it's safe to say that I will have a new project on this blog--so much for keeping it to minimal confusion.

Way too much to write in so little time...and loving it!

Aw the New Year, a chance to breathe after all those hectic holiday's.

It's time to relax, settle into the New year with all those resolution you know your not going to keep the moment you write them down. Time to sit out on your porch in the chill morning air, a nice cup of french blend coffee in one hand and a chocolate covered croissant in the other; a pen tucked behind your ear and a notepad on your lap. All the time in the world to do what ever you want to....
Did anyone have that kind of a New Year?!

Or was your New Year exactly like mine? Rush, rush, rush and just in case you didn't catch it the first three times RUSH! Christmas is over time to clean up the mess, its the New Year here is list of all the new things we're going to do and they have to be done immediately; don't ask me why! but they do!!
I barely managed to get an hour in to write my story, I barely managed to snag a computer to write this post. Not to mention my sis and I have blog together (we started the blog to document your journey into movie making...we haven't made any movies yet) and she is now starting college so I have to take care of the blog almost by myself. I realize recently that I know too many people who own a blog and want me to contribute! My poor fingers can only type so much!

After the first two weeks of the year people around me finally started to see things the way I do. It's just another year not the end of the world, things don't have to be done within the first last things have settled and I now have some breathing room...and writing space.
That was a close one. So for the sake of keeping this blog post short I'll get to the moral of the story. "Don't have a heart attack with all this rushing!!"

Just Breathe.

P.S how is your New Year going?
