Knowing your Muse
Admittedly inspired by a former post here--I am wondering how people would envision their "Muses." Here are some simple questions:
Is your muse Male or Female or Androgynous?
Is your muse solid or vapor?
Is your muse loyal or does he/she/it flee at any given moment, leaving you hanging like the last dead leaf clinging desperately to the tree in the wind?
Does your muse ever kick you in the butt?
Is your muse gentle and kind, or overbearing and prone to chastisement?
What do you do to "invite" the muse? What have you had the most success with?
I know, silly questions, but well worth the hearing. If your muse has temporarily deserted you, knowing him/her/it may help to bring it back.
N'est ce pas?
