The Off Switch to the Muse

Is there one?
Right now I'm thinking not.
It's 3:30 AM and I can't sleep because my muse is jumping up and down, shaking me and screaming in my ear. These are the times when I'm not too thrilled with my creative side. Yesterday was a very long day and when I got home just before 10pm I was pooped! However, after a mere three hours sleep my muse has decided she wants to create. So here I am with new design sketches and is my muse happy that I got up in the middle of the night to put her inspiration down on paper? That would be a no.
It's not she wants me to research the beads for the designs!
And I just want to sleep!
How do you put the genie back in the bottle?
My bloody muse is chanting "make it, make it, make it" and I want to bitchslap her!
I appreciate my muse, I really do, she comes up with some amazing stuff but damn it.....sleep already!
I named my muse Morgana after the Arthurian sorceress Morgana Le Fey (sometimes Morgan or Morgaine) half sister to King Arthur. Yeah, yeah, English heritage and growing up around castles is very influential. Morgana is often portrayed as evil but truth is she was also a healer....the good/bad can see why I named my muse after her.

  1. Know what you mean. Someone forgot the off-switch on mine, too. I have times, when I'm up all night. Not good when you have a fulltime job. *laughz*

  2. Lord, I'd have to kill my muse if I had a full time job. Fortunately for me, beading is my full time job.
