Microfiction Monday: Muses Musing





Welcome to Microfiction Monday at Stony River: a Writing Life, where a picture paints 140 characters, or even fewer.
Here's this week's picture, and my story to go with it:


(With all due respect to Erato, Thalia, Terpsichore, and the rest:)


Know what he told me, Thalia? "You won an award for procrastination, but you never picked it up." So then I said: 'You are such a lyre."
