Muses? I don’t have muses. I have screaming tormenters in my head that won’t relent until I put words on a page. Then, they leave me alone for a while. That’s the kind of inspiration I have most days.
…Stories that explode inside my head and demand that all parts get typed out or they’ll keep pounding on the doorway of my mind. Bloody fingers are of no account to them. All they want is to be written, produced, and recognized. Sure, they make themselves out to be shiny, bright ideas, but don’t turn your back on them or they’ll chew you to shreds.
Don’t get me wrong, I’d rather have words lining up to be written down than the other way: blank pages looking back at me like a big, empty mirror on a wall. That would be hell – having to face that kind of painting every day.
This way, at least there’s something powerful to put on paper. No doubt about that.
