This sort of endless busy-work tends to leave little room for my creative writing, so when I do have time, I’m so exhausted that I either turn on Netflix or pop in a movie.
It’s about that time too when I’ll start texting my friends.
In all honesty, we have no control over who becomes our muse, just as we have no control over who we fall in love with.
Not all of us are romantic writers either, so don’t be pestering us to write you poetry or paint you pictures.
We shoot for the infinite sky and explore the cosmos with the utmost aspiration and intent for happiness and success. Will we make like Journey and never stop believing? We’re not exactly clingy -- number six explains why – but are obsessed with making you happy and satisfied and always in some sort of constant state of bliss.
We are the ones wanting to direct movies, work for "Rolling Stone," play in a rock band, travel the world, write bestselling novels, etc. I’m not saying we’re all John Cusack in "Say Anything" or Julia Roberts in "Runaway Bride," but we will do little things to make you happy, like take you out to see concerts, bring home dinner, buy you things, introduce you to our favorite shows/movies, etc.
In the movie "Hemingway & Gellhorn" – perhaps my favorite romantic film – Ernest Hemingway once comments in the film something along the lines of, “I am a writer, and writers should not be forced to talk.” This is beyond true for not only writers, but artists as well, because most of us put so much of ourselves into our work that we often feel self-conscious about ever being as fluent with our speech.
With that said, our romantic partners aren’t always our muses.Patience is key in any relationship, but you must be especially patient in a relationship with an artist.We put so much of ourselves into our work that we can lose ourselves along the way.As a writer and journalist major, I am absolutely atrocious when it comes to texting.
If I’m not in my classes, I’m typically writing an article or doing whatever I need to in order to set up my next interview or hours of research for an article.Nothing in this world is truly romantic; it’s only interpreted as such. I’m not discouraging the practice of dating one – trust me, I don’t want to die alone – but take this article as a warning for what you are getting yourself into.
