I have to say that this is a brilliant piece of advice! I’m not being sarcastic, I mean it completely, I agree with it 100 percent! I noticed that I am at my most stuck & uncreative when surrounded by mountains of notebooks, jars of pens & pencils, bags of yarn. Who can breathe, never mind think, when there are dirty dishes in the sink, guitar cases loitering near footstools loaded down with CLEAN laundry no one is bothering to take upstairs, and three (3! two of them identical) pairs of scissors on an already overloaded side table!!! Aaargh!

I don’t need a muse — I NEED A MAID!
