Two Views of the Muse

October 10, 2007

Hmm… which Peter should I go with?

“You can only do this writing lark if you learn to listen to the muse: it’ll tell you when the elements are all in place – you should never, ever try to rush it or sidestep the process.”

–Peter Crowther, in the story notes for “A Worse Place than Hell” from Songs of Leaving, p. 235.

or

“If the Muse is late to work, you start without her.”

–Peter S. Beagle, in the introduction to “Salt Wine,” from The Line Between, p. 135.
