What Jamie says about her book

Beware the muse with a chip on her shoulder.

Muses are often called uncooperative, grumpy, lazy beings who abandon a writer when they’re needed most. Now, one of them has decided to tell their side of the story. Meet Clarissa, a muse who has spent centuries trying to inspire artists who sometimes are too stubborn to listen to her.

What is your muse trying to say to you? Clarissa might just be able to answer that…

Inside Jamie White’s Mind

What is your idea of perfect happiness? A day just spending time with people I love.

What turns you on creatively? Music and more music 🙂

Which words or phrases do you most overuse? Finally and eventually.

What quality do you most admire in a man? Honesty and a sense of humor.

What quality do you most admire in a woman? Being a good friend.

What is your greatest regret? Not writing sooner.

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? I have a very nervous, worry-wart personality so I would definitely ditch that.

What is your greatest fear? Got an hour? #waytoolongalist

Which living person do you most admire? Any member of the armed forces for being willing to sacrifice so much for people they don’t even know.

What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? Singing.

If you could choose what to come back as, what would it be? A dog or cat. They have it so easy!

What do you consider your greatest achievement? Actually getting a book out of me.

What is the trait you most deplore in others? Being two-faced.

What is your greatest extravagance? Music, for sure. I have a bit of a downloading addiction. Thankfully, amazon and my local libraries have a lot of great, free deals.

What is one thing you want to do before you die? Travel more.

What is your favorite music (genre/artist/album/song)? It varies; I like a little bit of everything.

What are some of your favorite curse words? Damn, Hell and Shit.

What is your motto? “Never say never” (Cheesy, I know.)

    A great interview and I’m now following Jamie’s blog! Thanks Eden.


  2. Great choice of people to meet. Jamie, I sense you are a woman of few words, excpet in your writing. I’m lucky to have a muse that has stuck by me and I do try to listen.

    I loved your comment about our men and women in service to our country– no matter the country’s name. As a veteran of a long ago war I can tell you that most service men and women know who they are fighting for– their familes. It was an honor to serve even in times of strife. Thank you.


    • Thanks for your comment, Dannie. Glad to hear you and your muse are getting along 🙂 I officially adopted Clarissa as mine after writing this. She’s doing right by me so far!

      Thank you for your service! It’s greatly appreciated.

  5. Nice reading more about your thoughts on the writing life you lead Jamie. I liked reading about your book too. Muses are often neglected.
