(Muse shows up)
Muse: Hey, how’s it going!
Me: Hey, I haven’t seen you for a little while.
Muse: Yeah, I had important Muse sh!t to do, you know how it goes.
Me: Right…well you’re here now that’s what matters. It’s a good thing too because I’m kind of bogged down on this one scene.
Muse: Yeah that’s nice. Hey, I had a really great idea for another story! It’s about this guy–
Me: Wait, wait slow down. I’m like 85,000 words into this story and I’d really like to finish it before…
Muse: Naw, I’m telling you this idea is REALLY GOOD. So that guy…
Me: I mean…that sounds cool and all but I’d like to finish my novel by the end of summer.
Muse: Don’t get hung up on dates, and finishing stuff, and all that.
Me: What do you mean? You’re the one who told me to write it!
Muse: I just bring you ideas and inspiration. I’m not really down with the whole “completing” stuff. It just isn’t my bag.
Me: So you just blow in here whenever you feel like it, have a mad passionate affair, and leave me to raise our little novel-babies by myself?
Muse: I’m glad you finally understand the nature of our relationship.
Me:…just set money on the dresser when you leave.
