The World in Words: Muses For Writing


Muses for Writing
The best kind of the writing is writing that sneaks up behind me when I’m not looking, the kind of writing that surprises me, like a breath of fresh air I didn’t know I was dying to take. Writing that leaves a mark on my skin; it leaves a mark I cannot erase with any sort of soap or scrub. Writing that consumes me from top to bottom, that tastes like warm ginger tea, but also sharp, like a shot of dark whiskey. The best kind of writing is writing that reminds me of the city: dirty, filthy, unsafe, but so, so alive. Writing that I cannot resist. Writing that leaves me absolutely speechless. This is the best kind of writing.
