My writing muse strikes in the weirdest moment. I am trying to recall the weirdest moments she has hit me so far. I remember lying in bed with my 4-year-old son reading his favorite book, cuddling up afterward just to wait until he sleeps. Perfect moments for the muse. A small idea, written lines. But I can’t get up until he sleeps.
The next day I’m lying in bed next to my beautiful wife. The muse hits again: a draft of a post, a vision of a future Medium story leading to fame and glory (wink, wink). And then, like a light switch, I’m out. Sleeping like a baby. The next day I can’t even remember the topic. I can’t sleep with an iPad next to me. God knows I’ve tried. But my wife made me decide: iPad or her. I chose her… for now.
P.S.: First of all, you should get my posts in your inbox. Do that here!
Secondly, if you like to experience Medium yourself, consider supporting me and thousands of other writers by signing up for a membership. It only costs $5 per month, it supports us, writers, greatly, and you have the chance to make money with your writing as well. When I started, I made $3000 in 6 months. By signing up with this link, you’ll support me directly with a portion of your fee, it won’t cost you more. If you do so, thank you a million times!
