The muse comes and goes
Today her name is deadline
She is prolific
People talk much about art and inspiration, but all good things are more work than genius. Deciding that something will be done produces more than a stroke of inspiration… Deadline is by far the most prolific of the muses.
The thing is inspiration comes in parts. There is a spark of inspiration, but that alone is not enough to produce the work — no, there must also be the need to finish. Even when the other muses are deeply involved, deadline is their constant helper.
