Glenlivet Muse


Discipline allows magic. To be a writer is to be the very best of assassins. You do not sit down and write every day to force the Muse to show up. You get into the habit of writing every day so that when she shows up, you have the maximum chance of catching her, bashing her on the head, and squeezing every last drop out of that bitch.

Inky’s Take: Writers block has me. I liken it to the Himalaya of hangovers; ripe with the vomit, and stale morning afters, complete with bleary eyes, and hair mussed by repeated furrows of fingers.

So, here I sit. Glenlivet laced coffee in hand as I work out the plot snarls with the cat.

Yes, ‘the cat’.  Why?

(points to a bowl of cream), she has her own Glenlivet..

  1. As Cubby would say, REOWR!

    Muse is a bitch. She needs trained every day.

    Feed her Drambuie. And coffee. And cigs. And Love. And life. And desire. And whatever floats your boat….

    ….and even all the shit that happens.x


    1. (busily taking notes) .. so it was the Glenlivet. Okay gonna change that to Drambuie and add the cigs, the rest is a steady daily diet..

      Thanks! 😉
