WIP Wednesday: In the Grip of The Muse

Victorian Romantic Tarot

I know, I know - you've been grateful for the moment's silence, but too much of a good thing is bad for you, right ? So I'm back. I was quiet because Mini Diva has been far less Mini and far more Diva recently, and my mental equilibrium - always a bit wobbly and teetering on the edge at the best of times - took a bit of a knock.  

Add that to my recent travails with Melpomene, merciless muse of Tragedy, and I didn't have much to write that wasn't as dreary as a sober politician telling the truth.

Fortunately - I hope - her sister Thalia, muse of Comedy, came along, and thus I am immured once more in the creative process. I will never look at a tea cosy in the same way again - and neither will you, if I have my way, and you keep coming back to read.

I sepiad (yes, it is a word now) the photo because I am paranoid - don't you know that people are desperate to steal my amazeballs ideas and with them, conquer the world of novelty tea cosies ? Well, no, probably they are not. It'd be like clowns fighting. But I did say 'paranoid'.

Anyway, you can see that Thalia and I are pretty good pals, and I must go listen to what she has to say. She's one of those high-maintenance friends where it's all about her, but you put up with it because you love the flavor of the dip she brings to the party.


  1. Hahaha!
    "I didn't have much to write that wasn't as dreary as a sober politician telling the truth."
    Love it. And I recognise some of my own friends in those descriptions...

  2. You've seen a politician tell the truth!??!!! Where?!! I must see this phenomenon!

    1. One must allow for the possibility, although the probability is low :D

  3. I'm not quite sure I get tea cozies...I understand the concept...just would never use one....

  4. Sepia or not, I recognize The Tower Of London when I see it. Um, that's not it, is it?

  5. I am intrigued to see what the cozy is going to be!! and 'sepiad' is a word. Who knew? :-)

  6. "Truth" and "politician" in the same sentence. Now there's a novelty :)


Thanks ! I love comments :-)
