By wearing the cloak of invisibility, it is the muse that is visible everywhere in the writer’s words or Wisdom. It is not present anywhere even then it is the only one showing up itself repeatedly.
“Nature’s my muse and
It’s been my passion.”
So, today instead of deploring on my own thoughts I would like to listen to the muse’s monologue! I am the oldest one in the realm of writing. The oldest one in the realm of the established writers and the youngest one as far as the budding writers and armatures are concerned. The writers can’t
write perfectly without my guidelines, I help them combating their block and exploring news ideas.
“I’m not in control of my muse.
My muse does all the work.”
I can be present around them like a ray of imagination, or a figure of inspiration in the form of another writer or can be found somewhere in the pages of a well written book.
“You should treat a muse
like a fairy.”
For some writers I am their utopian land which they portray in their books, elaborate and explain to their readers like a fancy world that comes to their imagination while they are upon a stupor or they are having a reverie.
“The muse in charge of fantasy
wears good, sensible shoes.”
Sometimes I am the force that delivers them back to their past and helps them in writing a memoir, a historiography or a autobiography. Every time I play different roles in the making of a full length paperback or a drama with dialogues to be played upon the stage. I am the writer’s dream, his or her best friend for life, the last hope of the pen and paper and the reader’s greatest source of entertainment.
“Fool, said my muse to me.
“look in thy heart and write.”
