This is a glimpse into what it's like to be in my brain, sorta. The assignment was to describe your life or an event in your life. I chose writing :)
Sometimes, I really hate muses... 'specially when Jakob drags me outta bed at 3 am to jot down a poem (Yes! I have a muse, he's male and named Jakob! Gotta problem?!). But, ah well... Dedicated to my little Jak.
Dedicated to all my fellow writers. Muses are sometimes difficult to work with. A humorous look at 'inspiration.'
This is when Venlah, the Bringer of War, first leaved her celestial bower to grant the suffering people the gift of war to revolt. Worked hard - rhyming is hard!
In an assignment for a class called 'The Art of Writing' we had to make a portfolio of the work we had done. I was going through a rough spot, I think, and insecurity was at an all time high at the start of the class. The Muse pieces are a chronology of what I had to go through to reach a place where I could be considered a 'writer.' This was the 'Beginning.' Updated: July 21 2003. Finally getting around to editting all of this. Thank you for your comments and encouragement! As you can see, I do take note of them.
A/N: Thank you for reading! This is a different PoV, fyi. But I try to make it obvious very quickly.
Dread is one of my highest ranking muses, so he thinks he can do and get away with whatever he likes. And often times he can and does.
The corners of your mind are coming alive unasked-for, and dancing like ghosts to gain your attention. What moves them? Is there a puppeteer?
Part of a series about females with their world torn away. This story makes me want my very own Galvinia to inspire ME!
Okay, after a lot of talk about what muses are and what they do, I came up with this. I couldn't sleep until I got it written. Now, you all get to share the sleep deprived fantasy. Enjoy! Oh, and watch out for the waffle.
The creature is mentioned all the time at Elfwood...but what exactly is a muse? What does a muse do and what does it do when it is not weaving its typical inspiration?
I wrote this, thinking of that one entity, that one firend that despire any writers block, or any artists mistake, will stand and direct your hand to the best course. Can you guess who it is?
This one came after 'Something Eternal' and before '.corner.' Something Eternal was a poem I was most proud of. It really meant a lot to me. And '.corner.'? Scared me. I had never written anything like that and, though teachers urged me to get published in school things and friends agreed it was the best piece of writing of Maeve's...I wasn't comfortable with it. I 'Became' something I didn't want to be. ...spooky, ne?
This came after 'A Brief Moment' ect. and before 'Something Eternal' in my portfolio. I'm not addressing my horrible writing slump to my muse. I wrote these all out of order. You can tell with the more typos there are, the later it was getting. I think there's something charming about the typos, and I don't like fixing them. Not just yet. I wept when I wrote this one. I don't really know why. I think because I know what the few things Luna holds most dearly are. Currently? It's Ahlren. *see 'Something Eternal.'* And I think Luna was talking about losing him and...well? I simply cried. That's the only explination I can give for it. Ah well...enjoy!
Hm. I didn't realize I only had one more chapter in the CWM series. The assignment was that we had to write an 'analytical' piece, answering the question 'Is writing art?' (The class was called 'the art of writing', of course.)But I decided to continue with my muse theme, and wrote this instead. My teacher was so taken with my muse, that she didn't care. I got an A++ on my portfolio. This is the ending. ...I have come to terms with my art. But are the consquences worth it? This is The End.
This is a story about a VERY old vampire. It contains some profanity which has been censored !#¢*. I have tried to make it so that those of us who know what the words are can still make them out. (If you know what the words are, you shouldn't have any reason to hate reading them, especially since I warned you here.) Hopefully they aren't so close to the look of the actual words that I will soil impressionable minds. I'm not trying to sneak the words in, I just like to know what a person means in place of !@#$.
