The Muse Wars.

by Lori Dwyer on July 4, 2012 · 8 comments

A long time ago, before blogging was so serious and when writing was just for fun, a blogger named Melissa begin a meme aptly named The Muse Wars. It was designed to inspire her blogging mates to write fiction and stories, to be creative instead of analytical; and it was awesome.

As things do, it fizzled after a few months.

It’s high time for the bitch to come back.

Welcome to Muse Wars, round two, RRSAHM style.


The DownLow 

The object of the game is- write a piece of fiction (poetry, short story, song, shopping list, whatever) taking your inspiration from the picture above. (Feel free to copy and paste it into your post.)
The experts say modern attention spans last 1000 words, maximum (keep that in mind). Past experience has taught us that it’s easier to play the game if you don’t read other people’s stories first- but the choice is yours.

Publish your piece, return to this post and add your link to list below.
The linky list is open from now until Friday, 27th of July; and if we have fun we’ll play this game with a new image every month.

Anyone can play The Muse Wars and all entries are welcome.
Share the love– read other entries, leave a comment; grab the button below and paste it somewhere on your blog. If you like, you can have the entire linky list on your blog too. (And don’t be shy- email me if you need help with any of the techy stuff.)

Muse Wars- Prescribed For Writers Block and Blog Disillusion

And why yes, my own short story is coming- stay tuned for Friday, jellybeans.

Hey Lynda- I read and love every single comment- I get them emailed to me so I don't miss them!! I will have to amend that to make it a bit clearer, thanks for letting me know :) xx

Lori, do you actually read the comments? I'm having trouble reconciling the two statements above: To comment divine & I rarely get around to replying to comments. Perhaps that means that you read them and yet don't reply to them. I hope so anyway.
