Drabble #59

The queen sent me on a journey yesterday. According to my estimations, and of course, the map she gave me, I would be at my destination in approximately a day's time. You could give me a quest, a challenge, a fight to the death with a fantastical beast-- I could probably do it. But there's one catch-- you have to tell me what the hell I'm doing. This queen sent me on this ambiguous journey on my own to some unknown place, her exact words being, "I'm sending you to find yourself." What the hell was that supposed to mean?

Drabble #58

Do you ever feel a burst of inspiration out of nowhere? It's completely spontaneous. Sometimes when you're waiting for it to come, it doesn't come. But when you're in the middle of something else, and you let your thoughts wander... a brilliant idea suddenly pops up and you are completely and utterly inspired. You suddenly have an idea for a new book. You start up a brand new Google Doc and you stare at the accursed blinking cursor. And suddenly, your idea disappears. Damn it, you think to yourself, closing the browser in disappointment. Why does inspiration work that way?
