I need more time. Sometimes I get an idea at work. Good luck to you @Mr Orange & @nixie

Our Muse Creatures are probably wondering around in the forest, or sleeping. Maybe watching classic comedy on Youtube. I dunno
i'm pretty sure my muse is at the pub. or binge watching game of thrones from the start again. either way I don't think i'm going to see her for a while.

@nixie Surely a Pixie Druid can play music for the plants and they in turn sing for you :giggle:

If this is you ‘Sans muse’ I can’t wait to read what you have when you muse is stuck to you like chocolate spread on un-toasted bread that’s been thrown on a carpet, ok I’m hungry now...

My muse duly arrived with an idea I thought worth working with. That was over a week ago and a dozen drafts later, I am yet to find one that I am even remotely happy with. It's tantalisingly within reach but feels sadly beyond my ability, unless I wake to sudden inspiration!

I like the theme though and really feel it offers a wealth of opportunities.

I might have a think about the 300 - see if that oils the old cogs.

I used have females for muse, but they kept complaining about me leaving the toilet seat up. That had to end.
I'd suggest that leaving the seat up is an invitation to a lecture you don't want a second time!

@Peter V .... From Under the Martian Yoke .... In the marriage of the arts and Science Fiction Peter writes a tale of magnificent art, irrepressible love, and intentional selfish cruelty.

Peter that's a real emotional roller coaster of a story. Well done.
