In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “All About Me.”
Explain why you chose your blog’s title and what it means to you.
Mehrling Muse, the name of my blog, seemed to suit me. I often do things backwards, so starting with my last name seemed appropriate. I like to make people smile, so something aMUSing seemed appropriate. We had well-loved cats years ago, and we heard mew, mew, MEWS all day long. Finally, I am a MUSician. You know now that I like to pun. This was written in five minutes, because we are celebrating Father’s Day one day late with our son.
The assignment today went on about writer’s block. I’ve read about it but rarely experienced it. Of course, there is a difference in writing when you feel like it and writing something to order. Many times I’ve started writing by saying I had nothing to write about, and then I filled a page or so with ramblings. Words swirl around in my head constantly, and sometimes they just have to burst out. Blogging is the perfect medium for me.
