Muse Call

I was asked by a wonderful blogger/Twitter personality Violeta Nedkova to write a small entry on her blog about who my muse is, what he/she is called, and my relationship to my muse. She's compiled entries from all kinds of bloggers on her site, and I really encourage you to check it out! Here's a link to part one of her compilation, and here's part two (where I am). (And follow her on Twitter, because she's the bee's knees at keeping on top of the writing world on there).

This is my entry (in poetry form, but it's in prose on Violeta's site):

Ode to a Nameless Muse
By K.D.

When I try to write, he sleeps,
tranquil as my mind frets
over the how-to’s, the kisses, the angst,
the constant struggle to get my characters from here to there.
When I try to sleep, he calls me,
always collect,
filled with passion;
begging me to pay attention to him as my dreams call me.
He is a tangle;
I am a pawn.
But our music that is manuscript
is beautiful
when we work
We fight.
His time is his; my time is his.
When I want to write, he can’t fathom it.
But he wins
because he’s smarter,
more talented,
and more driven than me,
especially at four in the morning. 

Let me know what you think, and (again) be sure to check out all the other entries!
Now, to leave you with a song to write by, "How To Write a Love Song" by Axis of Awesome. HIGHLARIOUS and could quite possibly teach you how not to write a romance as well as a love song (or how to do such if you want it to be generic). Enjoy!


  1. Hhaah, thanks again for contributing! You know, I'm loving the fact that you always end with a song. However, I'm hating the fact that I always forget my headphones when I'm in public places, lol.

    Anyway... I loved these parts: But our "music that is manuscript is beautiful" & "His time is his; my time is his." You're my poetry muse. Keep it up! :)

  2. Aw thanks! Yeah, I'm song addicted, and I only put up ones (so far) that I really, really love. Hope you can listen to them later!
