Muse Hang-Out

Muses, the messengers of creative inspiration, spiritual electricity and occasional episodes of feeling smart hang out at this blog. occasionally all nine of them break out in a harmonized version of simply singing the word "blog" and holding it for up to 10 minutes. desired effects of visiting this blog: flurries of ideas, spontaneous grins, compulsions to create.

the absurdity of long titles and the magic of dreamboards: a juxaposition in need of a segue

Yeah, I do have long titles to books and one women shows(My show's title was I Can't Always Handle Reality But It's Really the Only Place to Get a Good Cup of Coffee - it was a long show too). I like the aspect of breaking rules that long titles entail. It has an element of the absurb which always appeals to me as well. Someone told me my book title was too long and I was no longer convinced they were right when five NY publishing houses wanted it with title unchanged.. a plug for following your instincts
Someone asked me to give an example of a dreamboard and I couldn't email them back direcly because it was in blog feedback form. The one you see is Jenn's from last year: .. I just had about 30 people in a workshop creating dreamboards over at my house.. It's a magical experience..that just requires magazines, poster board, glue and belief. (a few more secrets will be shared this thursday night) go here to register.. it's almost filled. Link:

Have a great day and other platitudes that serve you,
