What a fantastic week! I can see you all adore Rynne as much as me. Or should I say her and her heroes? They are indeed one hundred percent fabulous. I'm so sorry I wasn't able to pop in more this week but life (as it has a way of doing) detained me. But I see y'all had a ton of fun anyways! *wide smile*

I'm hoping to be able to post again before the weekend's finished but if I don't make it put a check mark on your Monday morn calender slot now. Why? Because my next blog event is officially starting. I know, there's been little talk of it. Frankly, it kinda snuck up on me. Where does the time go? *I'm rubbing my hands together in anticipation* So here's what I have up my sleeve. Nine weeks...nine authors...all visiting this blog to chat about...our muses!
Yep, you heard me correctly, our muses. After all, those famous muses born of Greek Mythology belong to each and every one of us. They are the voices in our heads whom make us decide to choose the red rose over the pink. Bach over Beethovan. Jeans over dress pants. The sax over the piano. Tap over ballet. Or vice versa on all mentioned. Regardless, they're the voices in our heads that rule ALL when it comes to inspiration. Lucky me, I'm part of an anthology that tells the tales of these nine aformentioned muses. Those devine beings whom, in your every day life, help you through split second decisions. Those who have in fact, inspired you in everything you do...from the very beginning.
Naturally, these nine muses of inspiration weren't birthed simutaneously. No, they came one before the other until all nine existed. Until all became the stuff of legends. So, who was the very first muse?
I won't make you research. Her name was Calliope (Καλλιόπη) muse of heroic poetry. Daughter of Zeus and Mnemosyne. Calliope was incredible. I'm hoping I'll be able to talk more about her before Monday. If not, prepare yourselves because Calliope is one muse you won't want to miss!
A very happy weekend to you all.
