Respect the Muse; Respect Yourself

Mary's much overdue writing prompts are a little movie and a quote. Note that the movie has some vulgar language, but sometimes truth is vulgar. (Also I think it has an ad, and I'm sorry about that.)

"...I was working a lot as an adjunct and afraid that if I lived poem to poem I wouldn't write. I thought I need a project, which is advice I'll give students, even as an exercise to keep writing, because I think if you walk off from the Muse, she'll go visit somebody who's got time for her."
