Those were the DAYS muse

Over a year ago, when I started Muse Avatar Monday, Jensen Ackles was my first muse. Seriously, do you blame me?

So every once in a while, like when I'm starting something fresh - or simply gearing up for a new season of Supernatural, I like to bring him back. Surprisingly, I've not heard any complaints.

But Jensen's purpose as muse avatar this Monday is actually three-fold.

Long before he was Dean on Supernatural, Jensen played Brady on the daytime soap opera Days of Our Lives. No really - would I lie about that?

Check out this clip. (It's long, but you'll get the idea in the first 30 seconds.)

I've actually been crushing on him since then, because Days is my guilty pleasure. Last week, my friend Sue introduced me to an iPhone app that lets me catch up on Days - while I'm making dinner. Or riding passenger on the way home from work. Or suffering insomnia. Why the heck didn't I think of that?

Watching Days is like going home. My Nona and I used to watch it when I was a kid - and I'm not surprised that some of the plot lines and power couples are still the same. (Confession: I once wrote "Bo and Hope Forever" on one my school binders. Sad, I know.)

This writing week, I'm going back to an old project, working on a new WIP, and uh, gearing up for Supernatural. In several ways. I can't think of a better muse avatar than Jensen.

Happy Monday!
