“THE MUSE”

 

hercules

As much as I adore ‘The Muses’ form Hercules, I’m  completely boggled by writers who say things like “I can’t choose where my muse takes me.”

 W H A T ?

Finding inspiration in quotes or images is one thing, but relying on a particular creative influence to stimulate you and claim  that’s what’s responsible for the work you produce?

N O P E. 

I feel like blaming the muse is an easy cop out for creative people to produce work which others consider to be disturbing or lacking of diversity. It’s a reason they bring up when challenged with the problematic elements of their writing.

It’s not their fault, it’s their muse.

B U L L S H I T !

You are in control of what you create. You are your own filter. You are your own muse.

  1. Exactly! People see what they want to see in their stories. The muse gets a mind of their own when that muse is put on paper and given the freedom to explore the adventure but no muse has whispered “YEAH MAKE HIM A WHITE GUY” in your hear. BISH WHET.
