Keeping my muse close to my heart.
MS Awareness Month 2021, Day 13
Life is short so keep it sweet.
Last week I lost my writing companion, my confidante, my muse. Carmen came into our lives nearly seventeen years ago. She sat with me as I penned my first YA novel (Abby,); she celebrated with me when it published; she criticized me when I refused to write a book about multiple sclerosis, but high-fived me when that eventual book was released and won national attention.
Carmen snuggled with me at night and talked to me often, teaching me just how verbal a Calico can be.
It’s been a challenging few days without her, but her memory remains and for that I give thanks.
We all need a muse, a reason to continue, a support system. Find yours this weekend and give thanks.
