Muse Party

The Muse Party Blogfest!

Today I’m participating in The Muse Party Blogfest! Hosted by Sarah Foster of The Faux Fountain Pen, this is a party for writers and their muses!

I don’t have a muse of my own, so for the party I decided to bring along Autumn Deacon. Autumn’s the little sister of Maddie, the main character from my upcoming novel BLANK CANVAS!

Autumn’s excited to get mingling, so while she runs off to the dance floor, I’ll answer the blogfest questions!

Here it goes:

1. Who is your muse (or character)? Tell us a little bit about him/her and why you brought them.

My party companion today is Autumn Deacon, an energetic, athletic, outgoing thirteen-year-old. I’m not much of a party person, but Autumn’s great at keeping spirits high. She’s the kind of girl you definitely want around at a shindig!

2. What are you guys wearing? Dressing up or keeping it casual?

It’s spring! Which means a sundress and sandals for me. Autumn’s gone about as dressy as she ever does with a cotton skirt with a zip-up sweater. She had sandals on, too, but–*watches her dancing in bare feet*–I think she left them in the car.

…I hope she doesn’t have any clumsy dance partners.

3. It’s a potluck! Did you bring something yummy?

I baked cookies! Peanut butter chocolate chip cookies, to be exact. There were supposed to be a lot more of them, but we got hungry on the way over. Sorry(not sorry)

4. Open bar! What are you both drinking (booze or otherwise)?

Hmm…cherry-coke? seems like a good party beverage. Yeah. We’ll take two!

5. Wallflowers or social butterflies?

I’ll be stuck to the wall for most of the night–I prefer pajamas and a good book or movie to a party. But Autumn will flutter all night! That’s why I brought her, =)

6. What song(s) will you and your muse sing for karaoke?

“A Fine Life” from Oliver! If you’re going with karaoke, you might as well pick something fun. A plus if we can get everyone else to join in!

7. What’s your favorite party game?

Well, I’m a fan of Victorian era games like The Minister’s Cat (it’s a fantastic game, I promise!) But Autumn would be more likely to enjoy something like Truth or Dare. She’s not afraid of secrets, and she loves a challenge.


8. Which one of you is more likely to end up dancing on a table top?

Autumn, definitely. But if the right song came on, something like “We Are Not Alone” from The Breakfast Club, I might not be able to resist.

9. Has your muse been a good date and would you ever hang out with them again?

Hanging out with Autumn all night is exhausting. But I would totally do it again! Just…after I’ve had some time to wind down from her endless chattering. Maybe we’ll make some tea. Something nice and calm.

But we had a great time at the party! Autumn would never admit it, but I think she needed a little break from home, a place where she could burn some energy and just have fun. I think this did the trick!

Now we’ll head over and visit some other party-goers.
