I enjoyed your fun tale--a creative way of looking at writer's block.
I had trouble reading the story until I read it outloud and then it flowed smoothly. I read it to my granddaughter and she enjoyed it as well. What a delightful tale. Good take on this week's challenge.
I found the "accent writing" a bit distracting but I admire your attempt. I would have like the story simplified with just sprinkles but nicely done.
I loved the personalization of the muse, both of old and modern, streetwise and savy. What a smart idea!
I loved the dialect, although my eyes had trouble sticking with it. Perhaps smaller paragraphs, or just a suggestion of dialect would have improved it. On the other hand, I am in awe of your mastery of the tricky Irish way o' speakin'. Great characterization!
Wonderful! I loved every word.

(I've been wondering what the voices in my head are ... now, I know it's Seamus, Rory, and Co.)
I love the Irish, so it goes to reason this was just up my alley. This is a difficult pattern to express and sound genuine as this does.

Quite an interestin' take on inspiration/writers block. It did take me a minute or so to get the "hang" of the accent, but then I really enjoyed the whole effect on the story. Keep writing.
Well done! I thoroughly enjoyed this. I personally didn't think the accent was overdone at all. Congratulations on your placement!
Congrats on your EC! This story is awesome.
Your lilt is firmly ingrained in my brain. :) This is so creative! Congrats on your level award AND editor's choice! :)
