There - just over there - a creepy little voice tells stories that horrify/amuse/disturb me.

The weaver of the tales is nameless, genderless (though I confess I think in terms of she - she is a powerful writer) and with every entry I read, I feel my withered writing Muse come a little bit closer back to life.

Closer to my ear, speaking from my not-entirely-electronic-world, whispers a Scheherazadian woman. Her posts dance between exotic fantasies and glimpses of real life, and I can't read her words without seeing her smile and joyful sparkling eyes.

She's one of the reasons I was inspired to join the contest.

Much, much further away there is a woman writing about her job. Her terrifying job. As a zookeeper, I have done things I never would have thought I was capable of doing. I thought I was confident, strident, capable. But I read this woman's blog and I know I'd run screaming from her work day every day.

I read, muttering i will not cry. i will be brave. i will not cry.

Before I joined LJ Idol, I had no idea how much writing was still happening in these blogs.

I could easily stretch this entry to include so many more names. That said..

[livejournal.com profile] alleyalligator, [livejournal.com profile] shadowwolf13, and [livejournal.com profile] basric are the ones that immediately come to mind as my personal inspiration.

..Thank you.
