I met a writer who had hired a woman as a muse. The expression that attracted him to her was

“You know my limits. I have no limits.”

He would give her situations, and ask for her response or strategy, if she had been there. I am sure it gave him tremendous insights, and openings into new worlds, which helped him write.

I asked myself, what would I do, if I was in that writer’s place. He wants to know what she had done or what she would do. I would also like to know

  • what is it that she regrets not doing?
  • what will she refrain from doing and why?
  • what is it that other people would have liked her to refrain from doing, and why?

That would give me openings into several other worlds, which complete the picture.
