My husband as my muse

So, my next several #FridayFlash are a seductive little vampire arc.  Based on a phrase my husband has teased me with when we're being intimate.

When I told him this, he was pleased as punch.  He had never realized just how much he influences my writing.  My belief in true love, my need for a strong man, and so many other things in my stories are all because of him.  He's my world, and I don't care how co-dependent that sounds.

He's not only my muse, but he's my support system.  He may not be in the writing biz too, but he listens to my rants, and he keeps me from getting too stressed.  He's the one that always reminds me that this is supposed to be fun.

He's also the one that's proud enough of my work to post a rough sketch of my new book cover to our WoW guild.  Anything I need, he ends up being it.

But I guess it really shouldn't be too much of a surprise that I'm inspired by him.  We writers can't pull absolutely everything out of our imagination.  Having a good basis makes better characters.
