I always come away from a convention in a similarly energized state. I remember the one time I went to NYC, when I attended the HWA awards weekend back in 1998. The city was so condensed and tight, the air had a life of its own. The only other time I experience that is when I'm at a convention. It's enough to make you a junkie.

Except, then it comes down to what you do with those inspirations. You've got that exactly right. You've got to wrestle your muse into its harness and give it direction.

Thanks for the comment, Steve. The muse is a sensitive beast. As you say, you have to give it direction, but by the same token, you can't MAKE it do anything it doesn't want to, and if you try, you risk ticking it off and driving it away for a while. At least that's been my experience.
