Anonymous asked: "Does a muse have to be human? Can it be an object or something else?"

No to the first question and yes to the second. A muse is whatever inspires you.

We recommend that you read the article we posted on muses a while back.

Thank you for your question!

But your question was more specific, wasn’t it? Do we think that a writer can have a human muse?

Short Answer: Yes.

Long Answer: Yes we do, because people find inspiration in everything, including people. Often times, it is the connection with another person from which writers draw inspiration. It can also be a fondness of the aesthetic of that person, or the aura, the vibe, the je ne sais quoi of that person that the writer may find so alluring and inspiring.

Writers famously claim ignorance of the source of their inspiration, and we think this is rightly so, because it is both so easy and so difficult to throw a dart at the wall and proclaim, “That! That is my muse!”

This is the great secret: The wall is the muse, and the dart. The room around you and the world beyond that is the muse. You are the muse!

We say don’t limit yourself to any one thing. Things and people come and go. Life is the muse.
