Where is fancy bred?

Posted by marshal on August 12, 2010 in Novels |

“Tell me where is fancy bred,
Or in the heart or in the head?“ (Shakespeare, Merchant of Venice)

Sometimes it's hard to get going. I have some five book plots at various
stages of development, but there are some mornings I wonder what the
hell.  I already know that writing is probably a losing game, more of a
hobby, really.  About 1% of all books written in a given year will
become successful. I suppose I write because, like Lady Murasaki
Shikibu (Tale of Genji) said, the life we have led or the life we
have known compels us to write. 

I just wish my darned muse would be more consistent.  But then again, maybe it's not
the muse's fault.  Maybe it's me and my shoddy work habits. Maybe I
had better stop blaming a conceptual being for my own laziness.
Yeah, I can do that.  I'll start tomorrow.
