My muse is a shadow
licking at my heels, curled up
in the back of my mind.
#Glory-Be-Project Day 33 and #NaHaiWriMo Day 2

I don't do muses. I don't like them. This was from a library exercise.

Do you think a muse is just a different form of inspiration?

:shrug: In the old sense, a muse is something outside of yourself that gives you the power to create. The term "genius" comes from the same root word as "genie;" artists in ancient days were thought of as conduits, not masters unto themselves. I really hate this idea because it devalues the work someone does as an artist. </endrant>
