The Modern Muse

I know most of us are unlikely ever to write an epic, an elegy or an idyll, so I took the liberty of re-assigning the muses to modern genres. You can commune with the muse of the genre you’re working in, or draw on the strengths of any muse you choose.


It’s In the Cards

Here is the part that I’m most excited about! At the end of the ebook you will find several sheets of muse cards to print, with beautiful paintings by Giuseppe Fagnani on one side and a quick reference on the reverse. The ebook has a list of writerly games you can play with your muse cards. You can also simply prop them up on your laptop or tuck them into your notebook to commune with the muses as you write.
