Firing My Muse
Somewhere in time, when I wasn't looking, my muse turned out to be a (psychic) vampire. It sounds harsh, I know, but it's just another SFT (Stupid Female Trick) to work so hard to try to please someone who cannot be pleased. So, he is now fired. I have now bought myself a lot of freedom. So will I find someone else to fill the position? I think instead I will invent an invisible muse. I still want my muse to be male and I love the name Ianto (yes from Torchwood), only this Ianto will have the body of St. Sebastian, complete with arrows, a set of working wings and some sort of animal head--with antlers. Ianto will live in a cave, read by torchlight, never watch television, and will convey messages from Guillermo del Toro. I do not wish to dominate or isolate Ianto, so he will have lots of artistic friends and a social life of his own. He can also choose his own preferred diet. If he wants to live on roast owl with gumdrops, it is fine with me.
