Author's Note: The origins of the Muses....
After another period of no work as my muses have disappeared yet again, I caved in, and began to track their movements. This was hard. But as they were located, they got automatically tagged with a collar. This enabled me to recall them at will.
Now... the origins of the muses...
Muse: a writer's source of inspiration; especially: a guiding genius. Webster. Well... alright.
The Nine Muses: Mother was Mnemosene. She slept with Zeus in Pieria for nine nights in a row. One year later, she gave birth to nine girls near the peak of Olympus. These nine girls were all excited by music and poetry and who formed an excellent choir.
The Nine Muses: Clio, Euterpe, Thalia, Melpomene, Terpsichore, Erato, Polymnia, Urania and Calliope. Herodotus' Histories are named after these muses.
Muse: Figment of the imagination; not real; do not exist. Courtesy of Karina Goard.
Muse: Created to praise Zeus with music and words worthy enough to match his deeds and grandeur.
Well. Decide for yourself.
