With the rhyming of that title one would maybe assume that Dr. Seuss is mine?
For the record, he's not. But I do have them.
Plenty of people have muses. They can be a person (or several), a place, even a band - anything that serves as inspiration.
Author Stephenie Meyer (of the Twilight books, in case you've been under a rock for the last 3 years) has said that the band Muse is her, well, muse. I seem to share the band-as-muse gene with Ms. Meyer. I'm sure by now you know that I love U2 (more specifically, BONO). No? You didn't know? Read this. Now you know! U2 gets my creative juices flowing and they are always in my playlist when I'm writing.
I also consider Savannah, Georgia one of my muses. The first time I visited I fell in love with it. Each time I'm there (three times so far) I feel more inspired to write. I hope to have a home there one day (or if all else fails maybe I'll rent one of those air-conditioned storage units and put a pull out couch in it).
I also have a few real-life muses. My mother is one of them. The others are celebrities and are too embarassing to admit to the entire Internet, so I'll keep them my little secret.
Your turn: Who's your muse?
