Wherefore art thou, muse?

My muse has been a bitch lately.

I have three novellas due by June 1, all for themed collections. I have zero idea on one, a kind of idea on another, and the third, I've come up with three different ones. All of which I've started. All of which I've scrapped after a couple day's work.

Nothing is sticking, and it's driving me crazy. My most recent one is 7k and I just spent the morning re-reading it and it's boring as crap. I don't want to write, I can't understand why anyone would want to read it, which means I should find a new idea. Except this will be the third one I've tossed aside in less than three weeks. And my deadline is six weeks away, with two more stories to do.

I seriously hate my muse right now.
