Iâ€™m typing words on a page, and letters fly from keyboard to screen. My muse is hitting the high notes, laughing today, as fingers perform a percussion of clattering dreams.
And coffeeâ€™s bitter brew steeps sensuously, its scented veil trailing across my eyes.
But when I look at the wide white screen the notes of the muse have gone flat. Did I mean to write that? â€œObituariesâ€ will soon be telling its own.
Textnovelâ€™s page is gray, the keyboard stone, and finger-ends are wearied skin and bone.
â€œSave chapter, start another?â€ Hit okay. The author and the muse together groan.
Written for Wednesday Writing Essentials:
- include three senses in your article
- mention a book by title, either a real book or one you've made up
- use the word "page"
- make sure someone shows a noisy reaction such as cry or scream or roar with laughter, etc.
â€œObituariesâ€ is the romantic mystery Iâ€™m writing for a competition on textnovel.com. You have to join the site to read, but if anyoneâ€™s interested, Iâ€™d love to see you there. (You could even vote for me, but don't worry. I know I won't win.)
