Some people may think this is silly. Normal people (or “norms” as we often call them) don’t get it. Even other writers don’t always understand. Not everyone believes in muses.

But for me, muses are very real. They’re magical beings. They’re annoying beings. They’re ungodly frustrating sometimes. For example, my muse does this to me…

Fb02 Muse Amnesia

… all the freaking time!

So do you believe in muses? Is your muse as difficult to work with as mine?

  1. I’ve definitely had the experience you show in the cartoon. I guess I do believe in muses (metaphorically). Although I suspect the muse is a lot more likely to visit someone who’s pushing forward with or without her.

    Oh, I believe in muses. And that they come in many different forms, sometimes whispering in my ear or showing me signs. They’re like the fairy god mother of writing. Unfortunately they like to come and go as they please. Mine has left, probably for somewhere more exotic and warm.

  3. Haha, mine’s awkward in the same way. I feel like I have a grasp on something, then gradually it slides away before I have time to jot it down…
