    Hmmm, sounds strenuous—carpet burns might be involved—better find a pencil with a rubber on the end....:rolleyes:

    Choose your Muse, because if you love writing, what is the alternative?

    Go on thinking that you don't need to be read and you'll find that it may become quite true: no one will feel the need to read it because it is written for yourself alone; and the public won't feel any impulse to gate crash such a private party - Dylan Thomas

    It appears that mystery stories need a muse - I'm dredging through my faded memories of Greek mythology seeking one. Any suggestions? Desponia? Leda? Is that Leda of Leda and the Swan fame?

    No Muses for all the many genres. I think you'd need to go with the spirit, mood or voice of your work. Your story about the Family Man...well that could (arguably?) be Melpomene.


    In fairness to the classical ancients, the art form of the novel was not yet invented.

    That Leda was a princess of Sparta. but interesting to read that a swan was a Greek symbol for the Muses.

    Thankfully all my Muse requires is strong, hot tea and time. He used to enjoy digestive buscuits as well but since I am on a health kick, Norman has agreed to forgoe that little pleasure.

    That is very understanding of Norman...and they are not known for that, as a rule.

    I actually managed to get a photo of my Muse, on of her infrequent visits:

    Well my understanding is Ceridwen (the goddess) covers poetry and possibly fantasy, certainly feels like it to me. ;)
