Please identify yourself!
I don’t think you’re being entirely fair. Ive kept my side of the deal, i write every day (well, ok, nearly), and have done on and off for several years now. Im not sure if i should be thanking you for that or just congratulating myself on my own powers of determination.
I get so jealous when i hear other writers talk about their “muses”. Some are real people who inspire them to write (*thinks*…nope, i don’t have one of those). Others talk about an imaginary entity, fairies, animals or a spiritual being (*thinks*…nope, i don’t see you as that either). Some see their muse as being part of themselves, a part that pushes them on in the right direction with an encouraging, supportive hand (*laughs* yeah, right, theres nothing pushing me on!).
So why are you so elusive?
Ive spent the last 4 years writing…short stories, novels, scenes, characterisations, but no idea, so far, has had that “wow factor”. Nothing has gripped me so tightly that i don’t want to let go of it. Can i say to myself, oh, well, thats because i don’t have a muse? Are all my ideas destined to be boring without your guidance?
So please muse, if you’re reading this i could really do with a helping hand. A flash of inspirational brilliance, just one (I’m not greedy) would be so welcome right now. Something along the lines of Harry Potter, or The Hunger Games would be good. Thats not asking too much is it? ;)
I look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience.
Do you have a “Muse”? Would love to hear about him/her/it :)
