I was home sick one day this week, and despite being high on antihistamines,
I got more writing done than I usually do healthy. I found it relaxing to have the
whole day ahead of me to write whatever the muse chose to write. For some
reason that doesn’t work with Sundays.

It’s hard for me to get the whole picture of a story in my head with just a few
spare hours after a long day of startup-meltdown craziness. The muse wants her
mental lebensraum. If only fanfic paid the rent, she could have it.
I wonder if so many college students drop off the face of fandom when they
graduate because of the sudden lack of muse-time.

    I do know that my fanfic output depends very much on the external stresses in my life. When work picked up and I was putting in 12-13 hour days, I didn’t have much time to write. On the other hand, now that I’m in school, it’s easier to find time to write even when I know I should be studying, simply because it’s a good break from regular things and it’s not business related.
