My muse is usually nice to me, at least she has been lately. She flits along in my subconscious giving me ideas, pointing me down that path I missed three turns ago. Usually this is done during my waking moments when pen and paper aren't too far away. Last night, it was as I was drifting off to sleep and too tired to get to pen and paper. Fortunately I was able to recall what it was my muse had pointed out to me (darn shifting time from almost night to daybreak-- forgot to carry that thread through the rest of the chapter!)
So today I ask, how does your muse treat you? Do you find yourself scrambling for pen and paper as sleep is beckoning you? Are you able to put the thought into your memory and recall it the next day, or is it gone forever if you don't record it?
