The computer I type on isn’t my own. I’m in that curious way station of a Business Centre inside the Grand Hotel in Toronto, Ontario, awaiting a room I can crawl into for a nap. Sleep deprivation is real on these trips to Toronto, where I get in early enough from my flight to eat breakfast in a local diner, but too early for the hotel.
My eyes are halfway shut, and I half expect to fall asleep somewhere in the middle of writing this post, but the desire to stay lucid long enough to crawl into my room is strong.

I wonder if that's why writers often say their true characters have 'muses of their own'. Are we mirroring the creation of the universe every time we write? Is this our way to harken back to it? As flimsy as it is?
