Monday Muse...

So I gave my Muse a bit of a workout this weekend and what do I have to show from it - more confusion!  You see I have this story that spans both YA and Adult.  Adult erotic, maybe, but I'm not sure yet. 

I thought my best bet would be to start on the YA end and see what I could make of it.  Perhaps, I could straight line it into the story it would end up being, but my lines squiggled and knotted.  One clear pathway in my world building led to a tangled mess in another.  I can't do one thing, without another not working out, but when I try to untie that mess I create another elsewhere.  ~arggg~

There's a story here I want to tell, but clearly I need to dig in further and create a firm, steady base for my crazy changing world - and so I shall continue.  My dragon queen will live, eventually!


  1. Yes, the dragon queen shall live! What if there are sisters, and one takes one path, and the other one another path?

    Just love that pic!

  2. Hmmm, that's a definite possibility...I'll have to let muse-y chew on it awhile. ;)

  3. Hang in there. It'll work out eventually and find its audience. I stand (or sit, as the case may be) as living proof that the same storyline can spawn both YA and adult erotic and both versions can get published.

    And now I have two genres to procrastinate in. Careful of those downsides.

  4. Hehe...yeah, Pat, that darn downside. Of course, I already procrastinate like a pro so what's a couple more opportunities. ;D

    Oh you sure did make it work, Pat, and both lines are such a pleasure to read. I'll keep that in mind every time I attempt to unwind this plot. :)
