Well last week I was worried about writing in the voice of Anne More Donne (which actually turned out OK. I wrote 724 words, which is a lot for a poet!). Today, I've got to write in the voice of either Sappho or the Muse. Or, I guess I could take a whole new spin on Anne. gulp. I'm surprised at how much fun this prose writing is! Don't get me wrong, I don't think I'm up for a novel or anything quite yet, but this dabbling is fun.

The idea of the muse always annoys the hell out of me. I think it's because I don't want to pretend (let alone believe) that what I write comes out of somewhere/one else than me. Also, hubris seems so much more useful to the writer than supplication.

Prose can be addictive--watch out!
