Cited by Sandra K. Hosking via ftp September 6, 2001; Hosking says,
Personae Matthew Packard, male, 20s-30s, a freelance writer who hasn't
produced much lately; Damon (m), any age, an unsavory muse; Woman/Calliope
(f), 20s-30s, Packard’s date who later turns into Calliope, the head muse.
“Matthew Packard wakes up one morning with a hangover and discovers Damon,
a muse, sitting on his chest. Damon convinces Packard, a writer, that he
needs help getting his career in gear and convinces him to sign a six-month
contract. Damon’s ‘inspirational’ style is more like a dictator than a
coach, and Packard resists him. Finally, Calliope, the head muse steps
in to reveal that Damon is an imposter.
Sandra Hosking teaches workshops at Spokane Civic Theatre and at various places in Spokane, Washington, U.S.A. She a reporter at the Journal of Business
