Meet the Muse

HRR has a fun relationship with her pipe-smoking muse. Enjoy!

Let Me Tell You the Story of...

“Pah! You’ve never had such adventure. How do you expect to write about space warriors or musketmen if you’ve never been one?” He leans over a bit and lights a pipe, but as he puffs the smoke has no scent. He’s not exactly real. He’s a figment, a muse.

    See you around, Diana! ❤

    Hello Diana. I’ve had a go at the Muse subject and posted it a minute ago. Here’s the link. I hope it works – I’ve had trouble providing links before.
