LOL...Niece would have probably bought into that one more than the bunny!

Well, now you know why the general population thinks creative people are all a bit nutso, LOL!!

My muses are just disembodied voices that live in my head - nothing so fun as yours, unfortunately.

"My muses are just disembodied voices that live in my head - nothing so fun as yours, unfortunately."

I'm so glad to hear you say that. Personally, I don't think I have a "muse," unless it's the characters themselves. I was beginning to think I must be an extremely odd writer for not having one. LOL!

Yeah, its the same for me - the characters themselves serve as my inspirations :)

I don't, as a rule, talk to these...more a projection of how I see parts of my personality...although when I write fic about them, it gets fun to personify them.

Probably because it's true.

I do talk to my inner Sessh and Inner Inu from time to time, but for the most part, I just write....the muses behave themselves until it's time to play muse mayhem.

knittingknots said,"my primary muse is a 4 foot tall, drunken pink anthropomorphic bunny rabbit..." and this is a problem, why? Unless she has very expensive tastes in booze, of course.

Nope, cheap sake works for her. In fact it's very cheap cause it's a magic bottle of sake that never runs empty...LOL.

My muses are the monkeys in the British Museum who keep trying to type the Works of Shakespeare and end up typing my stories instead.

LOL. Your stories are better than random words typed by monkeys, you know....

i don't think i have a muse... that- is probably why i have twenty seven pages of an unfinished crossover sitting on my desktop waiting for me to write a few more paragraphs every week or two. maybe i should get drunk and see bunnies-- or pink elephants, i'm not picky anymore.

can you even imagine how hard it is to get to the point that reveals that 'rurouni kenshin's hiko seijiro is really inu no taisho?

LOL...

Muses are projections of that part of us that does something involved with the writing or creative process. It's like creating any character in a story. You devise it, name it, discover it's characterizations and have fun with it. Some people talk to theirs. I write stories about mine.

I prefer to see the part of me that demands high standards and hard work as a drunken pink bunny with delusions of grandeur.

Snark Monster, my Kitsune jokester-self, no doubt is partly to blame...

How did your niece react?

She always has thought I was a bit strange...but I pointed her to one of the crackfics I wrote where Pink is a character...no comment yet...LOL.

I never allow anyone I know personally to read what I write. they give me weird looks.

Hey, my dad has read my fanfic...and then bragged on me to my entire family...After that, there is no turning back.

Niece has read other of my stuff, so it's not really a trauma...she once upon a time had the writing bug herself, and might one day do so again....
