It happened!

Today I sold my first story. I earned my first pay for writing. I was so lucky to work with Morris Allen at Metaphorosis Magazine who edited and showed me how to craft a big handful of raw material into a beautiful creation. Milestone!!!!

literally stories

The muses are beautiful, but dangerous.

They are kept in silk lined stalls.

They have a very short life expectancy.  Two days from the time the first stitch is placed, because without food and water the skin dries up and shrivels, hanging too loose on the body to properly ink.

They are all silent, in honor of the very first mute muse, the first muse to become a book.  The thing is, no one even remembers the poems or title.  They only know the legend of the mute muse.
