I was given a gift of muses when I left my job at the library. One of the teachers made her good-bye gift more of a good luck gift.
She must have found this somewhere at a teaching supply store:
That's Shakespeare, Tolstoy, Dickens, and Woolf. They're finger puppets AND magnets so now they hang to my right.
Before I had this though, I've been drawing on the music of Tori Amos as inspiration since I was a teen. About 5-6 years ago, my mother had one of my favorite posters framed as a birthday gift. It now sits on the wall above where I write along with all my Tori concert ticket stubs. It's nice to have her smiling over me:
Finally, NO space would be complete without inspiration from the goddess herself, Octavia Estelle Butler. This was given to me as a framed gift when I turned 29 and I keep it right next
to my keyboard:
So there you have it--my muses! I'm going to get back to writing now but I'm curious...who are your
muses and what does your
writing space look like? Don't make me tag you!!!! :)
