The Muses are the Goddesses who inspire us in our creativity. They are the daughters - there are 9 of them - of Zeus and Mnemosyne. The 9 Muses are:
Calliope - muse of epic poetry.
Clio - muse of history.
Erato - muse of love poetry.
Euterpe - muse of song and Elegiac poetry.
Melpomene - muse of tragedy.
Polyhymnia - muse of hymns.
Terpsichore - muse of dance.
Thalia - muse of comedy.
Urania - muse of astronomy.
When we are wanting to create a fantastic piece of writing, or other creative piece, we should call upon the relevant muse to help us in our endeavour.
