a: Syllable ~
b: a back-alley fistfight with a rabid hobo
What: "Writing when you'd rather not is one of the most important skills you can ever cultivate as a writer. Anyone can write when they're feeling fine and the muse has just hit them between the eyes like a thunderbolt from Valhalla. But there will be days when every syllable is like a back-alley fistfight with a rabid hobo. That's when your mettle really gets tested."

a: A syllable ~
b: a drop of water to the seed
What: "Meditation on a syllable is like adding a drop of glue in a glass of water which becomes dense at every step. A syllable can be like a drop of water to the seed that is yearning to sprout. A seed on the earth is like a unit of desire, and the strength to sprout "

METAMIA is a free database of analogy
and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search.
The subject matter can be anything.
Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged.
The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with
the stark literalism of a relational database.
Metamia is like a girdle for your muses,
a cognitive girdle.
