Sources of Inspiration

Writers use the term MUSE quite often. Muse refers to the nine goddesses from Greek mythology who preside over the arts, poetry, songs and science. When the muse visits an author, he/she becomes inspired to write.

I heard a quote from Graham Brown this morning.

"Life is about choices, some we regret, some we are proud of, some will haunt us forever. We are what we choose to be."

WOW! This quote kick-started a thought process for another story. While looking up the exact quote on the internet, I came across another quote, this one from Michael Gerber.

"Life is about choices, it is not about excuses. Excuses only trap us into believing that we cannot take control of our own lives."

It's time to scratch out some thoughts on where I could take this.
