Day to day I straddle the blurry lines between crazy and creative. Does crazy help creative to be? Or is creativity what keeps me from falling fully into the crazy abyss?
I embrace creativity, not just in my love for reading and writing, but in raising my children and juggling my overtaxed mind and schedule. The days of logical planning and structure slowly slipped away with each of my lovely children.
Crazy and creative must be souls forever intertwined. The days crazy takes over—sick children, husband travelling, car breaks down, tween issues—the more creativity beckons me. Story ideas and plot developments start bombarding my brain. It doesn't make any sense, but insanity rarely does.
Too often my muse disappears on the days I clear my schedule, pull out my laptop, and sit down to write.
That being said, it's about time I accept crazy as my muse. Crazy is my new normal thanks to these three little muses.
