In The Want Ads.

Help Wanted: Seeking applicants for temporary volunteer positions as Muse. Muses-R-Us has several openings available for short term "employment" as an inspiration prompter. No prior experience necessary. Skills required: Ability to ask a question geared toward inspiring individual posts for clients whose Muses are MIA. Topic prompts other than question form are also welcome. Please submit application and sample question in comments section.

Perhaps this is just the shot of motivation needed when a Muse thinks to slack off, or take an extended holiday. Threaten to replace her!

This morning, I was struck with inspiration. Why it didn't occur to me before I composed my post last night, I don't know.

While my Muse saw fit to leave me to my own devices, I could certainly ask others for a tip, a topic-get by with a little help from my friends!

So here's the deal. This is your chance to ask me a question, or suggest a topic. Pretty much anything goes-except for politics, science, math, and fashion-those, I truly do know nothing about.

I have one entry to work on already. Betty and Koda participated in a meme where you are assigned a letter and then you write about 10 things that you love that begin with that letter. They invited their readers to play along so I commented that I would indeed like to play. She did mention that X, Y, and Z would not be selections. I have my letter and will begin working on this tonight.

In the meantime, please post your application and sample question for Muses-R-Us. All applicants will be seriously considered. Thank You! ::giggles::

~Thanks For Stopping By~


  1. looking forward to your letter list when you post it :)

    let's see, a topic to write about......I don't know if you have written about any of these ini the past so I'll throw out several:

    favorite childhood memory
    first president you voted for and why
    favorite day of the week
    special memories of dad/mom
    best friend growing up

    does this help??


  2. Leigh, if you Google "blog prompts," you'll find lots of pages with thought-provoking questions. I haven't had to use one for a while, but it's nice to know they're there! :)

    Have a great weekend!
    Hugs, Beth
