Weekend Words - Sunday Edition Part 9...
There should be a Muse-fund, money available to compensate me for having to write under such constraints. Eight words picked at random from a dictionary and then she expects me to be eager to weave them into a story. I have better things to do: read the newspaper, watch the latest episode of NCIS Los Angeles or nap under the purple blanket in her office.
And this whole Weekend Words thing? Yes, I know I’ve been quiet for some time, but forcing me out to write? Does she not grasp the concept of capitulation? A Muse can only take so many hits!
To be honest, just between you and me, I enjoy these little exercises. They jiggle loose my imagination. Reading the newspaper, watching an episode on TV, napping under a blanket are lovely, quiet activities, but I am eager to write again, to grasp an idea and jiggle with it until it sings. Don’t tell Janet though, I’m still demanding a Muse-fund be implemented!
