Thorsday Night becomes Friday morning

3701 words to do today, but I dreamed the story, and I woke up with a serious improvement on the ending, and I’m ready to go.

The time travel twist is pretty twisty now.

    Loretta—Muses can be trained, and I’ve spent years developing techniques to train mine. That’s why it comes through for me when I need it.

    My Muse doesn’t do that. It keeps the rest of me awake while it jabbers on about a new idea its just had. At 5am. On a work night.

    So far, this story of yours sounds great. I really need to get round to reading something of yours (for shame…)
