Writers often refer to the influence the muse has on their creative process. Muses intercede between ideas and voice. Between ephemeral thoughts and the solid page.

The writer and the muse have an unwritten contract, a non-scripted dialogue, the makings of a reality show.

Weave a tale about the relationship between writer and muse. How/when do writer and muse unite? What do they create?

    This post (linked back to me, not MMLM) looks at the equation between recluse and muse, exploring the range of forms muses can take.

      My muse, Bernie, spends much of her time at spa retreats. Leaving me to fend for myself. Microwaving left-over frozen dinners, while she is luxuriating. Sigh

      Thanks a lot for reading 🙂 . You are right when you say that the muse does not have to be an ephemeral being

    an interesting prompt that can be approached in many different ways 🙂

    fascinating offers on the table ….. shall we dine and feast or starve? 😉

      My great-grandmother always maintained she sat at the starvation end of the table; after my 5 great-uncles had filled their plates.
      She did have a way of getting even — but that’s another tale for another day.
      Thanks for dropping by.

        Well – that definitely sounds fascinating – and somehow, slightly ominous …. I wait with anticipation for this particular tale – when the muse is willing to share 😉

        Or the prompt fits the family history.

        LOL …. that too is an intriguing possibility – so many influences, ideas, points and sources for inspiration …..
