What inspires you?
Where do those ideas come from?
It doesn’t matter, the ideas do come, and when they do you must make the most of them. Who knows when your muse will strike, titillate your imagination, lead you on mental flights of fancy that you need to write down just as soon as you can, lest like morning mist, they disappear never to be seen again.
Seize the moment.
Do it now.

Is Your Muse An Early Riser?
When is your most productive time?
Do you roll out of bed with your dreams still running around in your head? Do story ideas occur to you as you’re waking up, getting that first cup of coffee?
Don’t wait. Set down to your computer and capture those flying thoughts. Capture in words as many of those disparate thoughts as you can, then go back and add details to them. For many writers the early morning hours are their most creative, while the mind is fresh and unsullied by the problems and trials of the day.
If your muse is an early riser, you might want to keep a pad and pen by the bed so you can capture those thoughts and ideas even as you sit on the edge of the bed. Take advantage of your most creative moments and wring them dry for later.
