Muse This is my Writing Muse. I made her around 2003 and she’s been literally hanging around my office all these years. I recently cleaned things up and found her a new, more prominent place to be—just looking over my shoulder as I type.

I notice that I’m beginning to look like her a bit. She wears her collars higher and her hands aren’t as well-designed for typing, but her hair is way more fabulous than mine. She represents an older woman who is comfortable with who she is. Something to shoot for.
