Muse Wanted

Muse Wanted

A Story by Alicia™

Due to complications regarding her long-term muse, the author who runs this blog is currently seeking a “replacement muse” for future writes in the poetic form. She is looking for someone (or something) that can provide inspiration for extended periods of time. As all other jobs " for this is, indeed, a very serious occupation " a criterion must be met for prospective muses to be considered. Please keep in mind that the author is very critical when it comes to subjects of such manner. Below is a list of absolutely vital requirements, as well as several specific preferences.


o General:
     •   Has to be long-term
     •   Must be able to start ASAP
     •   Cannot be emotionally straining on author to the extent that he/she/it causes the block
     •   Must be accessible on a regular (if possible, daily) basis
     •   Stability would be a viable asset

o If human*:
     •     Must be someone that the author knows (or will know)
     •         Cannot be flawless
     •   Cannot, under any circumstances, know that he or she is a muse

If you still think that you are up to the challenge, do submit your application.

*Subject to change.
*Does not have to be human, however, objects such as rocks, etc, are not permitted.

How are people going to know if they get the job-- wouldn't that automatically render them unable to fulfill the criteria. What with the last requirement and all?
Heh, tell me if you find you're muse!

This is very clever, artsy humor. "Cannot be flawless" THANK YOU. I once promised someone I would never write them in a negative light. Well....that means I can't write them at all. I enjoyed reading it!
