Why I need a Muse

  • Post category:Writing

So I was thinking (never a safe occupation) and I said, “Hey self, you really should start finishing some of those snippit collections so that you can earn those shiny quarters and help pay off your college loan.”

And lo, myself responded, “Well dur.”

And I was forced to point out (rather sharply) that myself is, indeed, a rather practiced procrastinator and I think the phrase “lazy doofus” might have come up once or twice.

Which still doesn’t forgive myself from a rather lengthy diatribe on why my muses were to blame and not myself.

Which is silly, but more or less the path that any argument with myself plays out. She’s a doofus. *nod**nod*

I’d argue with my Muses but they are apparently all on vacation.

I think I need to invest in some rum…

EDIT: Okay, so the Muse she’s is back from her nap… Coming soon to a Quarters for College pile near you!

Those Who Bleed Darkness
This collection focuses on the darker aspects of the various worlds I’ve played in. From characters who bleed darkness when cut, to those who simply survive in a world built on shadows warped from reality, this glimpse run the gambit of evil. Call it dark fantasy or call it horror, these are the snippits that re-enforced the idea that Good™ has some stiff opposition…
