In Ancient Greece, the Muses were goddesses responsible for the formation of knowledge, namely creativity in the arts, literature, and poetry. They are shown depicted on the side of red-figure pottery and high-relief sculptures. Overtime, the muses have been shown more discretely through various forms of media such as a model who inspired an old master's oil painting or the lost romance that influenced a singer's heartbreaking ballad.
But having a muse does not only apply to famous artists. It is very common to fall into a slump when trying to move a pen to write or draw a new picture. It is a natural part of the whole creative process. It takes patience to wait for a muse or the madman to show itself, although procrastinating until the last minute or working late at night seem to be reliable sources to bring one out. There has to be an explanation as to why a spark of creativity suddenly appears after a slump.
One of the reasons webcomics get abandoned by their creators might be because the muse that originally fueled the early pages moved on to new projects. There is nothing more difficult than trying to draw while in a creative drought. This is an idea that employers really need to tap into when demanding the creation of art by a deadline. Drawing is not something that can be conjured up easily without a muse.
