Your muse is less of a dainty Tinkerbell whispering over your shoulder and more of an angry tiger whose tail you have to seize and hang on to for dear life.

And the more incredible the inspiration, the fiercer the beast.

You’ll have a much better chance of survival if you’ve been strength training and practicing on smaller targets every day.

If you try to seize your muse by the tail without a plan, though, you won’t stand a chance.

And you don’t want to think about what can happen if your muse and its hungry jaws catch you by surprise.
