Conversations With My MuseI continued to stare at the blank Microsoft document on my laptop screen. I have been staring at it for a long time now. I am stumped. I do not know what else to write or how to start or where to start.

“This is frustrating!” I almost screamed to an empty room when a sudden radiance filled my room. I squinted my eyes and noted a figure – a him.

“God?” I asked.

“Nope.”

I noted the all-white get up and then said, “My guardian angel?”

“Are you fucking kidding me? Do I look like a guardian angel to you? Look, no feather wings!” He made a half turn so I could see that he had a no wings on his back.

I raised an eyebrow and noted the absence of a wand. “I doubt you are my fairy godmother.”

“Well, I wanted to be one, but I failed the flight test and my poof didn’t sound like a poof at all but a loud BANG! They suggested I seek other options.” He said wistfully.

"A male fairy godmother?"

"Oh don't be judgmental!  It is an in-thing nowadays, you know."

“I think I had too much coffee… I’m beginning to imagine things.” I said as I closed my eyes and inhaled deeply. I flicked my eyes open and he’s still there.

“Still think you’re imagining me?”

“Who are you?”

“I’m your muse.”

“Muse?”

“Yes, muse. A guiding spirit. A source of inspiration.” When he noted that I didn’t look so convinced, he added “I know I don’t look the part, but I should let you know that I have inspired a lot of great writers!”

“And you are my muse?”

“Why do you think that is so hard to believe? You wrote Back to Black – I supplied the elevator scene. It’s one of your best works, isn’t it? I believe you got praises for that.”

“So that was all you?”

“Oh no sweetie… It is all you. I just guide you in the right direction. I help writers like you.”

“Can I ask you a question?”

“Go ahead.”

“Why did I choose erotica?”

“Oh, I didn’t have any part with that my dear. It was your own choice. You wanted to write again and you chose that field so to speak.”

I shrugged. “Just wanted to know what it would be like and if I would be able to do it.”

“What is it that you always keep saying?  You have an overactive mind?  And it’s not as if you have a lot of experience because quite frankly I don’t think you do. And for someone who hasn’t had any lately, you write good sex scenes.”

“Hah! Was that an insult?”

He laughed. “Oh no, my dear. That was just a comment. Hmmnnn… You are short-tempered! Is it the time of the month again? Are you ovulating?”

I laughed. I must be crazy. I had to remember what I ate earlier. Or it could be something I drank too.  Is this food poisoning? Are hallucinations part of the symptoms of food poisoning?

“Seriously, DDD… May I call you DDD? That’s what your readers call you, right? Seriously DDD, why the self-preservation? What is up with that? It’s not as if you are saving yourself for someone because you don’t have anyone in your life right now!”

“But what about ---” I started to say but my muse cut me off.

“You know he doesn’t count. Are you sure he even likes you?”

“He said ---”

“Yeah. Yeah. I know what you are going to say. You had a moment or two and you felt a connection. And no, he still doesn’t count.”

“Would getting laid make me write better?”

“Maybe. If not, it will make you less bitchy. Heed my advice.”

What is a Writer?

A good writer is also a good storyteller. He/she must ensnare the minds of the readers, trap them in a mind world that would make them believe what is happening is real, make them feel every stroke, feel every kiss, feel that final blow, and feel that explosion.

THE MIND IS A VERY POWERFUL THING.

A CREATIVE MIND, well now that’s A DEADLY TOOL.
