Muse Monday: What Ms. Maya Said

Yes. I know it’s actually Tuesday. So sue me. (I’m a lawyer in the day job, and buddy, you DO NOT want to face me in court.)
But I digress. If you, like any sane and rational person, think that Maya Angelou is simply one of the best writers and all around fabulous people in the world, enjoy this advice from her on tempting the muse:

“What I try to do is write. I may write for two weeks ‘the cat sat on the mat, that is that, not a rat,’…. And it might be just the most boring and awful stuff. But I try. When I’m writing, I write. And then it’s as if the muse is convinced that I’m serious and says, ‘Okay. Okay. I’ll come.”

If you don’t think Ms. Maya is all that plus the bag of chips, there is nothing I can do for you. Go enjoy Keeping up with the Kardashians and leave the grown ups alone.
