A new muse for me

I decided my new artsy self needed a new muse. I picked up this wonderful doll at a little shop in Pacific Grove called Tessuti Zoo. I'm trying to find the perfect name for her.

Suggestions, anyone?

There are so many stories only you can tell.Tell them, please.

She looks like an eager muse! Tess? Tessie? Laura? (ha! I always suggest that!)

Isn't she just adorable! I love her patent leather shoes. Matilda is good. My writing muse is Maude so Maude and Matilda might work. :)

I don't have a name, but she sure made me smile.

She made me smile too. That's why I knew she had to come home with me.

She's cute! Flora because she likes flowers? Zazu? Daisy?

Oh, Myrtle is another good one. My writing muse is Maude so Maude and Myrtle would work nicely too. Thanks!

Thanks, Laura. My art muse is much larger than my writing muse and I think that's because my art one is a little bit bossy, which I need due to my lack of confidence in the art department.

cute muse
Ooh, I'd snatch her up in an instant. Good choice, Susan.

Names? She's dressed like a ladylike muse, right down to her red lipstick. Madame Mitzie? Artesia? Blossom?

Re: cute muse
Thanks, Donna. I think you would like this little store. Madame....I like thinking of her as a Madame. Ah, the choices.

I swear, she looks like a "Susie" to me, which you may HATE! But it just popped into my head. Don't let Cassie think she's a toy. :)

Hahaha! I don't think I could have a muse with the same name as mine, or that close to it. Cassie CANNOT play with her. You would die if you knew how much I paid for her.

I love that word Tessuti (which in my ignorance i am pronouncing Tess-oo-ty) so I think that would be an excellent name for her.

Re: muse
I have no idea how to pronounce it myself so your guess is as good as mine! Thanks!

WHO AM I?



Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
