Finding My Muse

October 21, 2016 at 3:43 pm | Posted in Australia | 5 Comments

I have often wondered how people come to have a Muse, so I thought I would share a story I originally posted over six years ago. Enjoy.

Wangiwriter's Blog

“My Muse is a beautiful fairy queen named Titania,” a member of the group volunteers.

“Oh, mine’s a gorgeous hunk called Kurt,” chimes in another.

“I’ve heard Vera’s is a cricket who lives on her shoulder,” giggles a third. “She calls him Jiminy.”

“What’s your muse, Linda?” The leader of the writing group looks at me.

“Muse? Oh, I don’t have a muse. I just write or I don’t write. There’s no muse involved.”

“But everyone has a Muse. Even the ancient Greeks had Muses.”

“Well, of course they did.” I say. “That’s where the whole thing came from. The nine daughters of some god or other. I even know that Erata is the Muse of Poetry. It’s always in crossword puzzles.”

“Yes, but why don’t you have a muse?” asks the one with the hunk “I couldn’t write without mine.”

  1. I love owls, too, and I love the idea of having an owl for a muse.

  2. Hope you plan on coming back to your site here.

  3. Speaking of owls (and I so love the fact that you have owl figures throughout your house. My son gave me an owl stuffed animal years ago, and that owl watches over all of us..). I smiled when I saw your muse post here – on Friday my post will be about —- an owl!
