|Tracking the Muse

We were kicking around various explanations of why our Muses, from time to time, seem to disappear on us. Some of the ideas we came up with:

  • My Muse ran off to the Caribbean. Now she's in the path of a hurricane and can't be reached.
  • My Muse got call screening and has decided not to return my calls.
  • My Muse got a restraining order against me.
  • My Muse went hitchhiking, got bonked on the head, and now suffers from amnesia.
  • My Muse partied a little too hard and woke up in Vegas with a new spouse and a very interesting tattoo.
  • My Muse had to enter the Witness Protection Plan.

Has your Muse left you without a forwarding address? Stopped returning your calls? Told you to leave her alone, or dumped you for a Hollywood producer? Do you call a bounty hunter? A psychic? Your local law enforcement or government agency? If you'd like to join our story challenge, send me a short story (no minimum length, but it should fit in the body of an e-mail) about where your Muse ran off to, and how you handled it. We'll share our stories with the group and see where the Muse track takes us.
