Written? Kitten! - aka the new muse on the block
Looking into the briefly recorded history of the muse, I was able to find the one who abandons me most often. Thalia, the Roman muse of idyllic poetry and comedy. It must be she who makes my straight lines go crooked. She should also take credit for making me forget punchlines and not getting setups exactly right (or is that 'write')? And yes, this is a picture of her according to the internet.
We had a falling out when he found out that I think really pretty men should probably never be allowed to speak. Sometimes the fantasy is so much better before they open their mouths. Well since he somewhat resembled those types of men he became sullen. Sadly, he went into retirement after I poked fun at him one time too often; he just didn't see himself wearing Richard Simmons's tank tops and short shorts. He claimed he had to wash his hair and he's been in the tub so long I think his important bits have shrunk.
So now the lovely people who are attached to NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) have a new muse for those of us who have been left alone and lonely. Written? Kitten! might just be my way out of the woods! Every one hundred words and the author is rewarded with a new kitty. I've not tried it out, but have seen a lovely sample of it.

Maybe next year they'll do one with puppies. In the mean time, I think I'll go look for a ball of yarn.
