Today’s muse

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.

    I strongly agree with that part..
    “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.”
    True!
    I face this a lot while writing my muses..
    That’s why I have a lot of unfinished pieces.. sigh!

    So true it made me giggle. Though I would more consider the deadline to be sort of a pusher rather than “just” a helper. But of course that sort of pushing is helpful by nature, so I guess you are right after all.
