Good story. Other than Greek Mythology, this is the only story I recall where the author personifies the Muse. I like what you did.
Glad you enjoy my fake News. A couple of years ago, I was reading the Onion or one of the other satire sites and decided I could do that. So I created the Whole Toad News Service and started posting fake articles for fun on my Facebook Feed.
The story I am working on right now is a short story that addresses a controversial social issue. I am writing a tragedy this time. I do that to keep a balanced perspective. It will have a surprise twist at the end. It must be the Autumn post-Halloween air. :)
