QOTW: If you were selling your muse, how would you describe her/him/it?
Sometimes I ask myself the most bizarre questions. After reading about Army of Dave's attempts to sell the Universe on eBay last week (do read his blog post, I still have a smile on my face every time I think about it), I started wondering how I'd describe my muse, if I ever tried to sell her.
Of course I wouldn't! What do you take me for? But if I did . . .here's what the advert would probably say:
Second-hand speculative fiction muse.
Has given immense satisfaction during usage, and provided all my best ideas. Both ink and computer trained. Will require a weekly trip to a book store and Costa Coffee, and a few days holiday a year. Will disappear from time to time, but always returns with new ideas.
£1,000,000 or nearest offer.

Disclaimer: Ellie would like to apologise unreservedly to her muse and any other muses who may have been offended by this blog post. She would never attempt to sell her muse. She worships the ground her muse walks on, and understands that without muses all writers would not . . .well, write.
