We Are Not A-mused by Tom Evans
One thing I really love about the English language is that its etymology and construction can tell us so much about the inner workings of our minds, however obscured.
For example, when Queen Victoria said “We are not amused”, although I wasn’t present, perhaps I can connect with her state of mind when she made her so often quoted comment.
The Queen was most probably temporarily disconnected from her Creative ‘Muse’.
This disrupted state is known as be-musement.
Being aligned with your Muse isn’t something just for writers, musicians and artists. Anyone who is interacting on Twitter, Facebook or social media sites needs access to their Muse nowadays.
So, it might sound obvious but, if you are not amused you are hardly going to be inspired about writing a blog, a chapter of your book or even a simple Tweet.
