I hope that you enjoy reading another post of the Friday Loose Bloggers’ Consortium when eleven of us post on the same topic chosen by one of us. Today’s topic has been chosen by Grannymar.

Please do visit Ashok, Conrad, Grannymar, Magpie11, Maria, Gaelikaa, Helen, Judy, Anu and Ginger to see ten other views on the same topic. Some of these bloggers may be preoccupied with vacations, examinations, family problems and/or romance, so be a little indulgent in case they do not post or post late.

“Amateurs wait for inspiration. The rest of us just get up and go to work.”
– Chuck Close

I flatter myself that I am not an amateur! Grannymar’s inspiration for choosing this topic is certainly an inspired one! She must have thought very hard for a long time to come up with something that only she can do justice to. Just watch. She will come up with a beauty of a post on this subject. I cannot. I am not an amateur. I am a dependent worker.

I leave it to my Muse to come up with the inspiration, perspiration or whatever it is that enables me to write fairly regularly on my blog. I give complete credit to the Muse. I simply sit at the computer and the topic as well as the content simply flows. Even the ideas for borrowing from various sources come from the Muse.

It is therefore perfectly justifiable that I end with another quote.

“Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self.”
– Cyril Connelly

Fortunately for me, and just to annoy old Cyril, my Muse has a public that frequently reads her writings.
