Hey, hey! A new month means a new traveling blog topic!
This one is brought to you by none other than the fabulous Deb!
How would you personify your muse?
Wow, GREAT question! (Namely because I don’t picture my muse to be anything…er, well, except fickle and flighty, LOL!) Seriously though, I haven’t really developed what my must looks like.
Let’s create one together! *bounces in chair*
Okay, so what characteristics would I want in a creative archetype of myself, AKA, my muse?
- Fearlessness (how else am I gonna get enough courage to try something new?)
- A sharp set of eyes and ears
- An endless supply of iced coffee and chocolate (MOST important characteristic, IMHO)
- A great playlist for tunes
- Organizational skills
Nice list. BUT, what does that LOOK like?
Hmmm, let’s brainstorm…
Well, perhaps for me, I like the abstract idea of what a muse represents and not necessarily what my muse would look like. If my muse is ethereal, then I can moan and complain when my muse leaves me. In that scenario, it’s not really my fault when I slack off. I just pretend my muse has abandoned me to go off on vacation. I picture my muse soaking up some sun, sitting on some tropical beach, drinking mojitos that should be MINE.
Wait a minute. Why does my muse get to take a break when I don’t?
Well, guess what? I don’t need a muse. I can do this myself, darnit! *turns on laptop and mutters about the injustices of the situation while Word to boots up*
Ahem. *fixes hair, straightens shoulders, and smiles*
I better end that ramble…
(Wow, see what happens when a mind goes off on its own?)
Ok, so what does your muse look like? (Feel free to post pics. 😉 )
Next week, Lydia will give her response. Stay tuned!
