Welcome to the IWSG post. This is a place where writers can come together and express doubts/concerns and offer assistance/guidance… the ultimate writers' support structure. For more info go HERE.
Today, I want to talk about the muse. We all know and agree, that the muse is linked to your source of inspiration.
But what exactly is it?
People refer to this phenomenon in a variety of ways. It has also been said that the muse inhabits different/various forms. Is it a part of the writer? An external force?
Do ideas just strike you out of nowhere, like a bolt from the blue? Do you have one muse? Many muses? Or one for each type of art form, for example, a writer who paints and sings… would he have three separate muses? Do they have names? Or titles?
Some people engage in meaningful conversations with this muse. Whole conversations, I might add. Are muses metaphorical? Reality? A form of psychosis? An other-worldly creation? A figment of the imagination? An ethereal entity from a different dimension?
What do you think?
