The Shackled Muse

My muse was shackled; now it's free. Took some time to realize my muse was me. I love to write. That is all.

Actually, I promised the lovely RedSaid that I would magically conjure 500 words on MyDL and 500 words on my personal blog. This impromptu arrangement  followed a little Facebook status update I made last night after I realized I was a whole bunch happier when I still blogged regularly. (Sadly, my personal blog shall remain un-updated for now, gravity is taking its toll on my eyelids.)

Why would I never want to make use of Vodacom's services ever again? Because they are pathetic. Plain and simple, Pathetic in every way. Maybe I'm just a little worked up, but I really hate them right now.

WARNING: Some random rambling. When I'm confused, or angry, or flabbergasted, I just need to write and rave and rant.

I’m not an anonymous blogger, even though that was the plan when I started out. My name is Cheryl, I live in Johannesburg and many of my friends “in real life” follow my blog (even if they only pop in once in a while.) They know who The Shackled Muse is. And I’m sure Source has me somewhere on a video…

On the one hand, I stand by the notion that if you want to say something, have to balls to do so without a Nome de plume. On the other hand, there is something enticing about being unknown.
